Do you deal with anxiety? Everyone does, in one way or another. Life is full of stress and pressure to get things done. You might have anxiety and don’t even know it. Let’s go over what they symptoms are…symptoms of anxiety disorders can include overwhelming feelings of panic and fear, uncontrollable obsessive thoughts, recurring nightmares, and painful, intrusive memories. Physical symptoms of this condition can include increased heart rate, sweating, shaking, nausea, muscle tension, and other uncomfortable physical reactions.
If you do have these types of symptoms, you might be able to receive disability for mental disorder. Social Security has a set of disability listings for mental disorders, ranging from depression-related illness, anxiety-related disorders, and psychotic disorders to autism, ADHD and learning disabilities, and mental retardation (intellectual developmental disorder) and low IQ.
The best way to find out if your anxiety is serious enough for disability would be to make an appointment with your doctor and start receiving treatment for your anxiety. Even if your anxiety isn’t the worst scenario, if you can prove you can’t do even a simple, unskilled job due to emotional, psychiatric, or brain-related problems, you could possibly be able to receive disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides guidance as to just how severe anxiety must be in order for it to render a person eligible for benefits.
