Mental Impairments and Poor Stress Tolerance

For some individuals with mental impairments, their disorder manifests itself as poor stress tolerance. Such an individual may feel utter terror over issues that for a non-disabled person causes little or no stress at all. Mental impairments are often challenging to prove, however, so you may wish to work with an Ocala disability attorney, particularly if your initial application has been denied.

Poor Stress Tolerance as a Mental Impairment
It is important for those who do not possess mental impairments to be understanding rather than judgmental toward those who suffer from disorders of this kind. There is a cavalier attitude among some people that a person with a mental impairment is either weak or is exaggerating his condition.

Your Ocala disability attorney can attest that stress as a mental impairment is very real, and that victims suffer tremendously as a result. Unfortunately, even state disability examiners and administrative law judges at times don’t truly understand the nature of this condition. As a result, they conclude that a good solution is simply for the claimant to work in what most people consider to be low stress level jobs.

A person suffering poor stress tolerance is not likely to be able to function in such a job. Rather, they may begin to tremble, experience panic and impending doom, and feel an overwhelming urge to run away. They may even feel as though they are going to die if they cannot escape the stressor.

An Ocala Disability Lawyer Can Help You
If you suffer from stress as a mental impairment, it is important that you work with an Ocala disability attorney who understands your problem and will fight for you. Call CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC today to arrange a consultation at 352-304-5300.
