Hi I'm New here and have Bi polar/ mixed Character with avoidabt antsocial personality traits ( whatever that means). I was diagnosed in 1992, am 46now . I was on SSI/SSA for around 3 years and figured I was fine. Went back to work for 2yrs.. layed off-- unemployment and failed in colegge, Went back to same job(a friend got me back in) Pretty much didnt do anything for the next 12 years but take to much time off, drink alot and BS my way into staying at work . Recently I had an injury at work.(back) Since then I feel as though I have been spiraling down hill fast.
I fight (verbally) with someone at work almost daily including my Bosses. I'm never happy anymore. I am always either depressed or extremly Irritable constantly.and in either case I am back to drinking heavier and more than before. Also I'm pretty sure my paranoia is getting far out of hand again . I am cureently taking Xanex, Zoloft, Lhortabs and Lamitrol (to help me get off the xanex and Zoloft).
My question is simple /. Can I get back on SSI and or SSA, and does anyopne know the current rate of monthly benefits. for a living @ home married?
I know I rambled on and on alot here, but that is just me.
Thank for any help.
