Okay, long story short, I had epilepsy as I was growing up. I no longer have it, but the effects it took on my brain waves are permanent. I'm not mentally slow or anything, just a little... well... I have mental illness.

My neurologist told my mother when I was 14, that even though the seizures were done, I'd always have problems with authority and I'd either and I quote "Be self employed or unemployed because she will have trouble being or feeling inferior to someone else. This will probably prevent her from holding a job for the rest of her life."

I hate to say it, but it's true. I haven't held a job for longer than 6 months. Ever. I was also diagnosed with "Defiant Conduct Disorder"... not sure if I buy into all of that, but it's what the DR said. I also have anxiety.

Could I apply for disability?

ETA: I'll elaborate: I don't really have problems with authority. I did when I was younger like any other kid, but I switch jobs I THINK because I'm addicted to change. I find a new job, and quit the one I have. I change my hair, I change my clothes 3 + times a day, I change my nails and usually buy a new car every year. I like change. I don't want to be the same all the time.

FUCK do I have multiple personality disorder?

And for the haters, I DO have a job, thank you very much.

U can try. I applied fir my son. He hasnt had an avtive seizure in 10, yrs. But the effects led to aggresive behavior,low iq,and being on the autism sprectrum.. I gave any and all papers abd documents I had for him. They had me take him to one if their dr. 3 months later we were approved. Just try,if they deny u u can appeal the descion.

I'm not saying you are but that's what defiant conduct disorder means. dr's are wrong all the time get a second or third or fourth opinion before they lable you with that.

I know a young man who got disability for being bipolar.

What causes you to be unable to sustain gainful employment other than your inability to deal with authority? What kind of treatment have you been receiving for your disability?
