My partner suffers with agoraphobia, severe anxiety and panic attacks. She applied for social security disability with a lawyer. She got a letter today and she was turned down. I was wondering if its usual to be turned down first time.

I have heard that it is fairly common to be turned down the first time or so. It is also very important to have a doctor that can write a report in such a way to be accepted by the Social Security office. Maybe you can appeal the decision.
