Hello, I have read many post of the past 3 years and have learned alot from the message board. Thank you! Now I have a question about ssi. Why is it that they want you to see physciatrist during the fist apllication process and what is that like? I am a little depressed due to the pain and not being able to live my life like I did before I got hurt (but who wouldn't be). I don't pain on hurting myself or anything klike that, If someone could clear that up for me that would be awesome.
