Anxiety disability or disorder is a mental health disorder of feelings of worry, uncertainty or fear that claws at the human mind and are strong enough to mess with the mind and disrupt a person's daily activities. Anxiety disorder can manifest through obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks or post-traumatic disorder. Anxiety disorder often interrupts your ability to reason and function well. Having an anxiety disorder is no joke because it can mess with the mind and disrupt your whole day. Anxiety disorder manifests through phobia, panic attacks, tension or uneasiness.
Combating Anxiety Disability
In life, there is no problem or challenge without possible solutions. Anxiety disorder is no different. We can combat anxiety disorder with medication, psychotherapy, and some techniques to decrease, control, and eventually remove the symptoms of the disease.
The type of anxiety disorder and its severity will determine the effectiveness of the treatment.
You can use anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, and beta, blockers which are used for high blood pressure and decrease your anxiety, panic and worry.
You can also use psychotherapy to deal with your emotional response to anxiety disorder. You can use cognitive behavioural therapy that teaches you to recognize the thought patterns that lead to anxiety and how you can combat them. We also use exposure therapy to deal with the fear of anxiety disorder.
Getting Disability For Anxiety
You can get a disability for anxiety if you have well-documented evidence that it impacts your ability to work and hinders your output at work. There are specific medical criteria to meet to certify you are eligible for an anxiety disability.
Before you can get anxiety disability benefits, you must present a history of treatment by medical professionals, including your physician and an authorized mental health professional, to show the recurrent or chronic nature of your anxiety disorder and that it would deter your total capacity at work.
If you are disabled because of an Anxiety Disorder that prevents you from working, you may well be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits.
Before you can get disability for anxiety, you must have these symptoms:
Constant terrible panic attacks, erratic episodes of intense fear, apprehension, terror, and a sense of impending doom that happens at least once a week.
You must have recurring remembrances of a traumatic experience that causes marked distress and affects your output at work.
You must have repeated episodes of significant problems maintaining concentration at work or your general lifestyle.
You must also be dealing with significant difficulties maintaining social functions and the inability to function and relate coherently with others or restricting routine daily life activities.
You would most likely be eligible for anxiety disability benefits if your condition fits into the episodes listed above.
Anxiety disorder is becoming more rampant as people are going through so much, and they carry so much emotional baggage. Some people can manage anxiety disorders with the help of appropriate quarters and move on with their daily lives and activities. However, for some, it takes a toll on their overall lives and deters them from working. This set of people deserve and need anxiety disability benefits. However, for those with conditions who don't qualify for full Social Security disability benefits, there is the provision of a vocational medical allowance.
