I filled out all the paperwork online for disability around the beginning of the month, and I had my psychiatrist's support and everything, because I have bipolar, and I can't work, and today I saw her, and mentioned that I was going back to school online, and she flipped out on me and said that if I'm going to school, I won't be approved because they'll look at that as me being capable to work if I can go to school. Well, I can't GO to school! That's why I'm going online. It's a whole different situation. GOING to school requires me to get out there and be social and handle my emotions all the time. I can't do that. But doing it online, I can do it anytime I feel that I am able to without being pressured. So that's very different than having a job. She pretty much told me that I should give up the school idea in order to get disability. Well sorry, but this is a huge opportunity for me, and I've been planning it for months now, and I'm not giving that up! She had me so mad I was ready to scream at her!
She said "it's not logical." I said that if I can work on doing something more with my life in 2 years, then I'm going to do it, not just sit on my butt!
