6:28 I'm 25 and have been fired from about 85% of my jobs or aren't rehireable. I've made money every year since 16, but through a lot of jobs. Sometimes only weeks or months at a time. I became an EMT at 23. I've gone through a few jobs since then. I also have PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, sleep issues. Likely Marfans or EDS as well. Waiting on test results. Before I got fired from my last job, I told them about my issues and how it affected my performance and how my boss had really made it difficult for me to succeed. . I even said I thought I had autism. HR lady said "My son has autism". I don't know what she meant by that. I often times miss social cues. I say what I think is acceptable, only to later hear that people don't like me because of it. I ask questions for clarity, and then people hate that. I have a higher-than-average IQ, but I can't seem to really do much with it. If I went to try and get disability, do I need a long history of the diagnosis? I've been in therapy for other stuff for years intermittently. I got diagnosed with autism the day after I got fired. Which was not even a month ago. I'm so mentally exhausted. I don't see how I can keep a job. I only haven't been fired from 3 jobs. 1 was when I was 16 and it was Wendy's and I didn't have it long before we moved. The second was a call center. The third was an EMT job that won't rehire me. Pretty much all my life people disliking me is a huge misunderstanding. They think I am condescending or rude. I try to help and they think I'm lording over and trying to be the boss. Etc. I'm about ready to throw in the towel. Can anyone tell me how hard it is to get the disability and how much they give you? Can you work even if you get the money if you find some place willing to work with you? What if I get the money but have my own business on the side? I want to sell crafts I make with my circuit, what I paint or make. TIA
