I read your post and it really makes me have mixed emotions,symptahy off the bat,anger someone could end like this,and many others.

What i want to do is share what i can.First you are not as UNLIKLY to get disability as you believe.ESPECIALY if you have a work history.

The worst enemy will be time,perhaps under extreme circumstances there might be more options,and i wouldent doubt this,however the process is a timestaking one.Here are some steps that i believe you should know........

--- Go to or try to remeber EVERY pharmacy you have used in the past 5 years.Pharmacys will keep your record in system for 5 years,not postive,but almost remember being told this is law,regardless it was the policy of 3 i totaly different pharms i knew.

Get a print out dating back on every single medication you took for depression,have them print it out,will take them minutes and again should run back at least 5 years.

---- Second try to do the same with docs,if you have visited various pdocs,or any doc with the nature of the visit being depression,get the copy of it.

---- Get any notes you might have if have given at a job noting u have this disability,i actualy told a general manager in one case who treated it so wonderfully,i never felt it was a secret let out or felt he looked at me different,all i wanted was understanding that i might have times i leave breifly and he worked with me.Point is if u have anything along these lines,use em.

-- Go down with a folder full of whatever aresanal you think can help,no matter how minisecure,you would be surprised,its documentation and thats always better than nothing.

On a form you fill out,there is a part where you use your own words,this is crucial,take your time,and make strong points,ones for example how the illness has kept you from using your degree,how it has affected your life in every single way you can think of.

They will take this into account,i.e how much with your degree you generaly should make,and how much you instead have been making,they use it all.

The final hurdle after time will be seeing there doc,this is time to forget to shave,and dont hold back on nothing,perhaps forget to take meds that morning,lol i know sounds silly but i have heard this doc is there to likly put you down so do what you can.

Anyway hope some of this helps,in your case id start the process,then seek other means,and as long as you have a valid pending claim in,you are likly to find a resource to help you out while its reviewed.

You will get a retro check which will help enormaously in CATCHING UP,then peridodic checks which in the case someone worked all there life are usualy fair amounts.

Also meds,the new med coverage is outstanding,and helps a great deal.

Dont give up without at least having known u tackled it from a second strategy,hang in there i truly believe you would be succesful in getting the finicial aid you need.
