DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY – HOW WE CAN HELP
DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY – YOU CAN WIN DISABILITY BENEFITS
Depression and Anxiety are two sides of the same coin. Some people who have severe depression have depressive symptoms. For example, you may have crying spells, sadness, loss of interest in activities or hobbies. Likewise, you may stay away from friends and family members. Or worse, you may be have thoughts of suicide.
Anxiety can also be a manifestation of Depression. Anxiety presents symptoms such as racing thoughts, inability to sleep, irritability, lack of focus, confusion, and panic attacks. An individual can have one or all of these symptoms and be diagnosed with a Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, or even Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar Disorder includes feelings of being high and then feeling low. You may feel so low and scared that you will not leave the house. Other times, you may be manic, buying things you can’t afford or staying up all night cleaning.
APPLY FOR DISABILITY DUE TO DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
How can we help you if you have symptoms of either Anxiety or Depression? One of the main things we can do, if your severe mental impairments prevent you from working, is help you apply for disability benefits. Many people think that applying for disability benefits means they can never return to work again. However, oftentimes, people who receive the proper treatment and medications are able to return to the workforce after a period of time. Even if you plan on receiving treatment for your mental health and you then return to work, we can help you apply for benefits. Disability benefits are rightfully yours during the time that you cannot work. As long as you have been off work for 12 months due to your disabling mental impairments, you are entitled to be paid benefits during that time period.
