Most people don't know this but its extremely difficult to collect social security disability. Regardless of your disability you can expect to be denied thew first time you apply. Its as much a fact of life as the sun rising. When you are denied and only after you are denied you get a lawyer and apply again. Then you have to go to court with your lawyer and pray to god he or she is not in a bad mood. You can't get a lawyer until you are denied the first time and that first denial could take as long as six months. In the mean time you are sick or injured and you can't work. You have had to go on food stamps and have probably lost your car and been evicted from your home. I have seen this drag on for a year or longer. Its important to make sure you have a good lawyer when the you file a second time.
