I'm currently waiting on an ALJ hearing, claiming severe anxiety and depression.
Recently became homeless waiting to be approved as I'm unable to work atm(I've tried/still trying.) Surrounded by the people I am & in my current mental state(a mess) I started heavily using drugs since then. I want to seek medical help immediately to prevent this from becoming a permanent, debilitating problem, but I'm less willing to do so if admitting drug use to a dr will enter my records and hurt my approval chances. I figure SS might see drug use as a self-inflicted issue that in turn caused the anxiety and depression I'm claiming. This completely isn't the case, as these problems have been with me my whole life.
