However, I am a High School dropout. No one will hire me for a desk job. Am I still eligible for social security disability?
Unfortunately, as long as there is a job that exists in sufficient numbers in the economy that you can do full-time then you are not eligible for social security disability. It is advised to get expert advice though as you may be more limited than you think in your ability to work a full time job. Also, the number of jobs that is sufficient is not clearly defined by the Social Security Administration.
