I am going to be applying for SSD again after being denied because my OCD and anxiety keeps me from holding a job. But, my step dad who works in the mental health field told me that OCD is not an axis 1 diagnosis and I probably won't get it. Instead he said I should go the route of applying by using my bi-polar diagnosis. I feel the bi-polar and OCD feed off of each other especially when I have what I have so lovingly dubbed "meltdowns", but I think it is wrong that people cannot get disability for OCD. Do these government people have any idea how dibilitating (sp?) OCD can be? What are your thoughts?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
