I searched as found a story similar to ours, but only the beginning…not the outcome. So my question is what happens at a SSDI re-evaluation?
I knew this day would come sooner or later, but seriously was hoping later. Brief recap: Signs at 17, diagnosis 22, SSDI approved maybe 5 years ago (was married at time and I was not very involved with day to day) some ups and downs but major psychosis last March/April. After release from involuntary hospitalization refused treatment and meds.
Today lives on own and is functioning in that is fairly able to clean up home and person. Does not handle finances on own, but is not totally unaware of money. Eats well, but can be funny about where food came from. Last attempt at work 18 months ago ended up with him sitting in truck at work for hours.
So, yes he functions as long as environment is very low stress and he has escape plans from social situations.
He has agreed to go to appointment, but should I worry that he is not disabled enough???
TIA for any ideas.
