Many who suffer from severe depression find it very difficult to sustain any type of employment.  Although considered a non-exertional impairment by the Social Security Administration, it is still recognized as a very disabling condition depending on the severity.  A non-exertional impairment is one where the symptoms are not triggered by exertion such as walking or standing.   For some, the depression gets so bad that they do not want to get out of bed.  Depression is one of the more common medical conditions experienced by those who apply for disability benefits.
