      Thanks for your wise words....but its been going on for 7 years now....im clearly not faking anything and i honestly need some type of help....i read somewhere that even if you have never worked( like me) then theres still ways to get approved for disability....like one of them said i could get approved through one of my parents because they would have work credits.....i dont know....i was looking into maybe joining the army or something but i bet they wouldnt even want me because im way underweight for my age and bunch of other stuff😥

        @depressed_introvert Some people qualify for both SSI and SSDI, some only qualify for one. They're virtually the same and don't make a big difference in how much benefits you would receive. I just know from personal experience that the government/ disability do not care what you state your capabilities to be. Only lots and lots of documented medical evidence. Which is super frustrating and leaves people like you and I in a bind. Medicaid is income based though so that's why I thought maybe would be the place to start.

      The main difference between SSI and SSDI is that SSDI is based on work credits which you earn from employment. But either way qualifying goes through the same system. It is not really something that can realistically be obtained on your own or quickly. For most, it takes a minimum of 2 years and that's to get to 3rd appeal. Nearly impossible to get without a lawyer and thorough medical documentation. It is not easy by any means and I know there is not a lot of help or support out there. Finding out what government agencies service your area as far as homelessness, Medicaid or even your local ER (doctors and insurance can often provide resources). Take things one step at a time. It is easy to get overwhelmed. But all we can do is try our best each day.

      Do you qualify for Medicaid? To qualify for SS Disability, you need to establish a history of seeking care and have doctors supportive of you seeking Disability. I've learned to accept that others blood or not can believe whatever they want about me, but I no longer care and they will no longer treat me with disrespect and be a part of my life.
