Social anxiety?

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.

I applied about 4 years ago on my own for disability benefits based on my many issues. It became impossible for me to work at all about 8 years ago. My application was not approved. At this time I sought out a disability advocate to represent me. They filed the appeal which was denied. In truth I have been suffering from my conditions for over 30 years & have gone through a myriad of medications. My advocate listed my onset as 8 years ago when I could no longer work. The appeal filed through my advocate was denied.
