I felt really good about my upcoming SSDI hearing until yesterday. I got some bad news over the weekend that means a delay (or worse) in a writing gig I'd REALLY like to get, and that triggered all kinds of anxiety over the hearing. The report on my psych evaluation is pretty clear-cut; I'm supposed to be so bad at handling stress and even normal interaction with people that any kind of work is out of the question (if I were as screwed-up as this shrink thinks I am, I wouldn't be emotionally equipped to be writing this!). I've got letters from my mother (I'm 51 and I live with Mom), my AA sponsor and one of my doctors, detailing how I don't socialize, cook, etc. All in all, it does a good job of painting a real bleak picture of me and my life at this point. Can anyone think of anything I can do in the next 5 days to help! Much, much thanks in advance.
