i'm kinda new here and wonder if anyone knows if you get it counted against you if you take a class for real estate for 8 days for 3.5 hours then if i pass the state exam and attain my real estate license while i have filed for ssdi at the same time? i can do an online course at home. i don't know if i can handle the sitting and thinking part. i have a license in virginia but is not reciporcal in california. and i can not do my usual registered dental work for i have bulging discs, capral tunnel in both hands, ;shoulder surgeries in both, ankle and and feet problems and fibromyalgia or and depression/anxiety. and other blood disease called spherocytosis. so i know will not be able to and i already had a closed case in 7/04. and now have a pending case in the intial phase had the evals mental/physical. i had there psych tell me he didn't think i could do real estate cause you have to be pretty manic. then i had my primary tell me that maybe i could do it part time or maybe have to get a less stressful job. bottom line would i be denied benefits for ssdi for taking and passing the real estate exam while pending ssdi?
