How many of you here, that are of working age, are able to get disability based solely (I'm talking Medicare disability) on your bipolar disorder? If so, how long did it take to get it and was it a horrible process? I don't know how long I can go on working. Thanks.
I'm on SSDI... have been for over two years... strictly based on BP. I didn't have to use an attorney, they approved me on my first try... I was shocked. I guess I had enough evidence to convince them I couldn't work... and I really couldn't. I wouldn't be able to work today either. I'm still working on my stability and don't know when, if ever, I will be able to get back to work full time. There is also a Social Security Disability group on MDJ. You can probably find a lot of good info there.
