RA spondylisthesis, retrolisthesis and SSI disibilty possibilties

I have been struggling with severe RA with spondylisthesis of lower back, have cervical fusions of C3,4 & 5 and pins in my right shoulder. RA in itself is horrible and has wrecked my life. I haven't worked in three years and my pride and fear has been preventing me from applying social security benefits. I am all ways in pain, extremely tired all the time can't do anything my life has drastically changed for the worst. I used to very active fish, hunt, golf and all that is gone. I'm 53 year old male now and so depressed. Has anyone experienced this or has advice please help.
