Its a difficult thing to prove though. It seriously depends on how bad it is too. I am bipolar and I would have had to get an attorney involved because the government does not give disability out easily.

You you can. Some people have to fight for it and some just get it. My best friend has a long list of mental issues and after four mental break downs and two hospitalizations she found herself unable to leave the house, let alone go to work.

Yes, I was on SSDI for a few years when I was having some serious issues.  It helped me to get back on my feet.
