    I am so sorry that you are experiencing such a hard time right now.I don't know why they would cancel an appointment. However, with all that you have on your plate right now, the last thing you need is more stress. It seems that not knowing why your appointment was canceled is stressing you, as it would anyone. I suggest that you phone the office and ask why your appointment was canceled. You most certainly have a right to know.If the receptionist doesn't know,ask to speak to the nurse.
    About applying for disability. Don't worry. It could very well go easier than you think. Just be honest. wWen I went, I was surprised that the doctor, among other things, asked me to tell her what I was experiencing. I had not had a chance to speak to anyone about that before, and I broke into uncontrollable, loud and very embarrassing sobs. She listened with an open mind and I qualified. I am not suggestng that you cry, but I am suggesting that you do not try to be brave. Tell the doctor how you feel as honestly as you can.
    Good luck. Hugs. Terry
