Does anyone on Fluther have experience with filling out disability forms? Can you help a Jelly out?
I have about a 12 page “questionnaire” from the Department of Social Services. It’s another step in the process of getting Disability. Problem is, there are a large number of vague questions that I really have no idea how to answer, such as:
“What were you able to do before your illnesses that you cannot do now?”
“When you go out, can you go alone”,
“Are you able to pay bills,” etc.
A lot of these answers are both “yes” and no. Obviously, the goal for me is to collect Disability, and I want to be truthful, but I feel as if some of my answers hinge on me receiving the disability, and I want to avoid having to appeal my case. (This is for bipolar disorder, but may be applicable for anyone who has been required to fill out these forms themselves, or have assisted anyone in filling out theses forms.)
Do any Jellies have experience with filling out these forms? I’m lost, and don’t want to clog this question with all of these queries, but any input would be most appreciated.
Reward: helping a brother out, and lots of lurve!
