    So, I am applying for cash benefits (welfare) from the state. This isn't the same as SSI, but I'm not 100% sure about all the differences.

    I'm worried about appearing either not depressed enough or so depressed that they hospitalize me immediately. This is causing me a lot of anxiety. I really can't work right now. I knew that even when I was working. Mental health professionals really, really scare me and I don't trust them.

    Does anyone have state welfare? I want to understand how the psych evaluations go. I also have physical health problems that I can't take care of because of my financial situation.

    I had to stop taking all 7 of my medications (2 of which were antidepressants). I'm not exactly functional at the moment. I'm surprised I can even sit up.

    Thank you. Does anyone know any way I can tell them I'm suicidal without getting locked up? I can't be locked up right now. That will only make things worse.
