I'm thinking I might do it... Working is just plain too much with my anxiety.  I'm told if you have anxiety you can get it...  My anxiety is quite severe, and I just have a hard time living life AND working, and I'm not even working all that much anymore, and its not even something I enjoy.  I want to start an at home craft business thing, since that's something I can do on MY schedule, I'm good at, and I enjoy.  But with being a mom, and a wife, with my anxiety, I never have the strength to do what needs doing around the house, I don't go to church anymore because I'm too overwhelmed, and I can't keep on top of my health...

Gluten Free since Oct. 1, 2010
Fish/Seafood Free since 1997
Chocolate Free (with a few taste tests to see if I'm just crazy) since 2001.
Officially Dairy free 8/5/2013 (mostly dairy free before that, but I like my cheese and things) (dx'd officially with lactose intolerance, suspect casein too though)
Esophagitis dx'd 8/5/2013 thus doing a diet devoid of acidic foods and stuff

Are you seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist?  If not ask your doctor for referral to one. There is help for severe anxiety that may enable you to live a more normal life. If you are going to apply for disability seeing a doctor and trying to get help with it is going to be your first step.

Be prepared as applying for a getting disability is not an easy process. People are often denied first and having a disability lawyer might help the process if you can't overcome the anxiety with medical help.

I did. I was turned down the first time and went through a reputable disability attorney for the appeal. It went right through & I got retroactive benefits. It was worth every penny I gave the lawyer! Good luck!
