My 65 year old grandma has worked everyday since she was 15 years old ( had 6 kids by the time she was 20 and was married to a very abusive man) ..... She has had ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and now has so many things wrong with her , severe arthritis, anxiety, clinical depression, she has blood clots almost monthly ( blood clotting disorder), and has a hole in her heart, plus many other things... but has been denied disability several times over the last few years ( she is still working her labor job just for insurance)
My husbands 22 year old nephew has never has a real job, has been in jail 5 times and rehab 3 times ( and still does drugs), thinks he is a "pimp", and steals anything that isnt nailed down... at his last trip to jail he had a seizure and they let him out early ( in case he would seize & die they wouldnt be responsible) AND was just accepted for disability for have 2 seizures in the last 22 years !!!

First, it's so nice to read how much you care about your Grandma. Believe it, or not, knowing you love her makes her feel better. As for her situation and medical problems - it's not the first time I've heard about someone who truly needs and deserves disability being denied. It's not right. Sometimes getting a lawyer helps, but they are so expensive. I am sorry. I'll keep her in my prayers.
