I have a question about receiving disability and working possibly part time. I try to fill out forms and get so confused. I have ADHD and one “Disability Specialist” said the judge would laugh about disability for that. Now I do not want to work with her. I also have rotator cuff tears, broke my wrist (used to do medical transcription), have depression, post-traumatic disorder, and anxiety. I am not trying to be pathetic, but does anyone know the best way to get help with this? Do I call Social Services. It seems that you have to do everything for yourself, but with ADHD, it is harder. I start filling things out and then there is a question I do not understand, or they need so much information, I become overwhelmed and stop. I would think the Government would have people who know exactly how to help. Even with this new HealthCare Act, I had to stop because there were so many variables to the questions and I could not decide which plan to pick or which one I was eligible for. Is there a special place to call to get a real person with patience to help and who is knowledgeable? I feel like not only those with ADHD, but everyone is on their own in making these decisions that they really have no clue about because the questions are so wordy/confusing. If you can think of anything, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you.
