Disability benefits elapsed now what?

Ok it took my over a year and a half the first time to be approved for ssd and then when it came time to be revaluated i was going through a real messy divorce and didn't get my paperwork back in. Well that was back in the first 4 months or so of 2005 and now i have just applied again just last week. Ok this whole time i have been off ssd i haven't seen a doc for my bipolar because i was in the denial state once again thinking all the other docs were wrong and that i could fight this on my own boy was i wrong. Anyways i just started seeing a doc again last week and was diagnosed once again with bipolar and started on Depakote. And i plan on continuing to see this doc from here on out not gonna try it again on my own ever again because it put me through hell and through bankruptcy . Ok a friend of mine had the same things happen to her she didn't get her paper work back in time either and was off ssd for over 3 years then reapplied and it only took 2 months to get the decision back that she was approved. But she was seeing a doc the whole 3 years that she was off of ssd. my question is has anyone else been through this? If so was it a battle like the first time? Were you seeing a doc the whole time or not? Sorry for rambling i am just in one of my highs right now and i can't stop i am like a motor that can't be shut off at the moment and wished i had someone here at my house that i could just talk talk talk to that could even come close to understanding the jibber that is coming out of my mouth. k well thank you all for your time and i am so so so so so glad that i found this place it just seems like a awesome place to meet other with the same problems i face everyday!

Re: Disability benefits elapsed now what?

Hi Maryp,
I am by far an expert about this, but I can tell you that my depression, PTSD and anxiety were large factors in my disability case and I haven't seen a mental health person in over 3 yrs. Where I had to go it was a horrible place and I would leave feeling worse than when I got there.
Also, I didn't have a regular doctor for my physical problems. I couldn't afford one. But I still won my case and w/o an attorney.
Hope this helps some.
Best wishes, Btn
