    You can try.

    To apply for Social Security Disability you will have to fill out tons of forms and visit a dozen or more physicians whom the Social Security Administration sends you to.

    If those many physicians find that you are unable to work and support yourself, then you may be eligible.  But this can take as long as 2 years.  And you might need a lawyer.

    If you're disabled from gainful employment, you might be able to.  I actually got denied my first time applying while a college freshman.  And I was wheelchair bound from a neurological disorder.  I got approved when I had a relapse.
