my question is....if i decide to try working again...and if by some stroke of luck im able to hold this job(i always get fired within days or weeks from jobs for being too slow to learn ****)....can iapply for SSDI?
also it is inspiring to me, that your husband found a wife with all of his disorders. I have trouble with girls myself. Im just curious but how bad is his autism? How bad are his other disorders? What made you attracted to him? Sorry if that's too personal! thanks everyone!
Unfortunately you need to have held down the same job for a period of at least six months to apply for SSDI.
As far as my husband and I are concerned, I just happen to be the sort of person who can handle being in a relationship with someone who is severely disabled. In fact I easily get bored in relationships where the man seems like has everything under control except his sex life. I have a drive to actually be needed since I have so much to give.
He is High Functioning Autistic, has Tourette's syndrome, lupus, borderline personality disorder, bipolar, anxiety attacks, the list goes on. Because of the way his disorders intertwine he has not been able to hold down a job, and thus got SSI on his first try with no lawyer.
He doesn't have many relationships but gives his all to the ones he has. Unlike some autistics he does actually show emotion, but doesn't always know the appropriate displays of emotion for different circumstances. I'll admit, it is hard, but rewarding at the same time. He's not a "project"- far from it.
Initially it was same interests that got us together, and kept us together during four and a half years of long distance.
