Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety can take many forms.  The causes are not always identifiable.  The symptoms, however, can be understood by the right mental health professionals.  Make sure to treat for your symptoms, describe your symptoms well to your professionals, and – whenever possible – make sure that your doctors and psychologists document your symptoms in your records.  Ask about this.  Ten minute medication appointments are generally insufficient to prove how your anxiety limits you.  Also, talk about whether you should work.  The goal should be to get better.  If you don’t, your day-to-day limitations can be clearer for others, including the Social Security judge, to track.
