Suffering from an anxiety disorder is nothing like simply being a chronic worrier or having some stress in your life. The effects of an anxiety disorder can be debilitating and leave a Florida resident unable to go to work.
There are many different types of anxiety disorders, which are similar to, but not identical to, the different diagnoses for depression. Previous posts here have discussed PTSD, which can affect combat veterans, but also affects other people who have been through particularly scary or traumatic events. People can also suffer from generalized anxiety, have a certain fear or phobia or experience periodic panic attacks.
Our law office represents Florida residents who suffer from any number of diagnosable anxiety disorders in their efforts to get financial help when they are unable to work. There are a lot of issues that a person may face when trying to get Social Security Disability benefits, and we do our best to help our clients with respect to these and other issues.
For instance, a person may need help getting the right medical documentation if they suffer from periodic panic attacks, or they may need to be able to convince the Social Security Administration that their type of anxiety requires some time to recover after a bout or episode of the condition. In other cases, even if an anxiety condition is itself treatable with medication, sometimes the medicine is so strong that it keeps a person who has to take it from being able to work.
There are many different issues involved when a person needs to file a claim for disability benefits based on anxiety or another mental health condition. Our law office attempts to help Florida residents with resolving these issues and getting the benefits they need.
