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?
