    Hi everyone. I'm new to the board although I've been lurking for some time now. I applied for disability last May and they sent me to a ss psychiatrist. I was denied the first time. I applied again and after waiting 5 months they decided to send me to the psychiatrist again. They said I was able to do a sit down sedentary job and that my only hope of getting disability was to have my mental status re-evaluated. I didn't apply for mental disability although it has affected me emotionally because I am not able to do things I once did. Any ideas why they would send me to a psychiatrist twice? Would appreciate any ideas or comments.

    Blessings,
    Wanda

    I have no personal knowledge but from what I've read you are more likely to get it if it includes depression.
