One of our readers recommended that we include a link to the Social Security and Disability Resource Center. We checked it out, and it seems to contain some valuable content. Here’s a description of the site from our reader:
The Social Security and Disability Resource Center website provides answers to questions concerning how to apply for disability, how to appeal a claim in the event of a denial, how to navigate the federal system, and how to avoid certain mistakes that are commonly made by applicants filing for either SSD (social security disability) or SSI (supplemental security income) benefits.
Specifically, she thought our readers would find the article “Can I Qualify For Disability and Receive Benefits based on Depression?” relevant.
We’re also adding the link to our Blogroll (on the left), so you have convenient access to it on return visits.

Bipolar disorder gets a lot of bad press, even among those of us who have struggled with it in our lives. I have noticed this particularly online, from exasperated family members and exhausted individuals with bipolar who haven’t yet found effective treatment.
Larry and Linda Drain who have formed a local chapter of DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance) in Blount County, Tennessee. The group’s mission is to provide information and support for people with bipolar disorder and their loved ones and facilitate connections among people in the bipolar community. As Larry has said, “The weight is less heavy when it’s shared.”
