  1. I have done everything social security has asked. Going to Drs regularly and not working. Still haven’t got the long form yet due this month.


    1. Great. If you are already on disability and in regular treatment with an MD, then you can still pass a review even without a psych doc 🙂 They may send you to a visit with one of the social security psych docs. I hope it goes well for you.


  2. The problem I am having is finding a shrink in n.j. They r not taking Medicaid or medicare. I can’t afford 400 for an hour. I have two mds. They give me What I need for my bi polar, ocd, add, had. I am not going to get better with a shrink anyway. I was impatient shrink said I will b A sink man the rest of my life.
