Tourette Syndrome

I have a child that has Tourette Syndrome. He has tried to work but looses the jobs. They are not saying it is because of his condition but it probably is. He cannot keep still and it becomes very tiresome for him. We applied for SSI but was denied. What else can we do?

Thyroid Dysfunction - AutoImmune Disorder

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 11/07/2020 - 23:01

I’ve been researching the internet in regards to thyroid dysfunction and came across Blue Book 14.07, Part C. Doesn’t most hypothyroidism fall into the autoimmune category? I’m curious as to whether a serious thyroid impairment might fall under an autoimmune disorder. Also, I am under the the impression that this condition might affect a person’s mental condition, in addition to their physical condition, making it fall into a medical disorder category rather than mental or physical alone. Thoughts?

Social anxiety?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 06/29/2018 - 14:46

I've had social anxiety for over 20 years and I've always wanted to try to get social security for it cause I can't work because of it but my question is...how am I supposed to try and get it when I can hardly make myself leave the house let alone go to a lawyer and doctors or make phone calls and whatever else needs done to do it? Has anyone else with serious social anxiety done this and if so, how? Thank you.
