I know a woman who does because she suffered a leg injury that causes her daily and nearly inbearable pain.

SSI is NOT disability.
i cant stress it enough.

Ok its CONSIDERED disability  but its welfare.


Anyhoo, I receive DAC and SSDI.

I have (this is not comprehensive nor in any particular sort of order)


Prolonged QT Syndrome

Idiopathic Syncope

Spondylothesis

Piriformis Syndrome

AD1HB Allele and ALDH2 allele

Scoliosis (pretty bad)

Kyphosis (moderate bordering severe for someone my age)

Lordosis (again moderate bordering severe)

Various kidney malfunctions

An auto immune I'd rather not explain

Trochanteric Bursitis (that has lasted over 2 years and is resistant to treatment)

An incorrectly healed fractured TMJ that causes my jaw to sit funny

Eustachian tube disorders

I am allergic to everything under the sun, wheat yeast eggs milk, mold pollen animals, danger, dustmites and DEATHLY allergic to cock roaches (yeah laugh it up, i do)

I have asthma

I have left ventricular hypertrophy and atrial hypertrophy along with a slight mitral valve regurg-- this is from my Romano Ward Syndrome

I have varying skin conditions, usually infections because of the auto immune

I have sensory hallucinations with auto immune flare ups, I see, smell and taste things that are not there, usually curry or indian food and rubbing alcohol, along with the color purple tinted on EVERYTHING.

I have adult add

aspergers

OCD

PTSD

Depersonalization disorder

Non 24 Syndrome

I have plenty more wrong with me but that would require more energy that I'm not willing to put up at this point.

I am just starting the process, but also have degenerative disc disease, stenosis, sciatica, nerve damage, fractures in my spine, etc.

I was told it can take up to a year just to get an appointment and then most likely I have to go in front of a judge.

I can't work because I have cancer! Want to trade? If not, then quit bitching about it!

I have debilitating chronic pain due to my disease, I have arthritis and neuropathy, and hip dysplasia that had not been attempted to fix until I was older. I am actually having a total hip replacement in 4 days because my last hip surgery 4 years ago did not work, it just made me worse.
I get ssdi.

You can take this to the bank, you do not want to ever be in the position where you are on disability. My hubbie is on SSI. For what? NOYB. Does he wish he can work? Absolutely. Can he work though? No, or he would have a job.
