Tell the Government Disability should be easier to get for people with both physical and mental problems and faster too.
My mother tried on and off for Disability because of back problems since I was three years old I am now twenty and she still does not have Disability. Now I am trying for Disability because of major mental phobias and bipolar...I have been turned down three times in a letter and kept filing and then waited over a year to get a hearing...Then I was scared to death to go to the hearing because of my Agoraphobia (Fear of being around people) but I went because I desperatley need Disability. Everything sounded great like I would get it everyone I knew was optimistic but in around four months later I got the letter that said I was denied benifits because I would not take medication (which is another phobia I have) I just think they ask too much of people with my kind of problem I know people who have Disability and don't deserve it and some have disability but took FOREVER to get it. I think the Government should make this process FASTER so you can hear something about it before you die....and I also think they should cut back a little on the eligibility requirments. Please take a stand and help people who truly deserve Disability get it in a timely fashion.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
