So I'm not a very productive human being.
I can't sleep and keep a regular job cuz ADHD and if I get any regular sleep it's cuz I sedate myself with pills that I can't afford anyway.
I have BPD and OCD and CPTSD and tourette's and they still denied me, I have a small history of self-harm and clinical depression.

I have been on it when I was younger but my mom doesn't remember how she got me on it.

I'm at this point in my life where I can't maintain a steady job so I've been working temp agencies trying to survive but I end up usually shacking up with a girl because I end up either punching someone in the face or getting fired for something stupid like having to use the restroom to pee too many times.
And I just feel like I'm going to end up CTB if I don't find a way to live as a hermit.

I've already been homeless previously and I really don't want to end up back there.

Very difficult to get on SSI. I have a friend who did and she needed an attorney after multiple tries. But even if you do, it's barely enough to survive, if that.

Sadly the only way I was approved for disability and ssi was through a lawyer. It took 2 or 3 years. The comment above is right. It's not enough money to survive

I was on it before, but the reason I want to get on it is to have health insurance. I need to eventually have surgery on my shoulder from an incident that happened in 2011.

Yeah the health insurance is the only real benefit to being disabled. I truly believe the government would rather we disappear since we aren't contributing to society

if your main concern is health insurance, is there a reason why you wouldn't be eligible for Medicaid? getting on that is heaps easier/quicker than getting approved for any disability benefits since it's income-based. i was on it for years before i was eventually got approved for SSI. as far as healthcare goes, it's obviously not great but also much better than nothing.

this is a website i refer to a lot for this kind of stuff. maybe you'll find it helpful, idk!

(i live in a rural area in the Midwest so my living costs are pretty low, but i actually do okay as far as financial survival on SSI lol)
