OMFG!! Disability befits for ADHD?? *ETA

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My sister qualifies for disability income because she is ADHD.







I, personally, think it's a load of bull. Seriously? She's getting $700 for her and $350 for each dependent per month.







What is your opinion on this?



*edited with the correct amounts.

**ETA: my sister it's not disabled by her ADHD. It doesn't keep her from being able to work or live a 'normal' life. It doesn't hinder her in any way.

She brought up an old childhood diagnosis (she hadn't mentioned ADHD in over 10 years) and applied it to every job loss and bad decision she's made. She applied for $ so she wouldn't have to work. She wants to sit back and live easily, while others pay her bills.

I don't think it's right that she is getting money that she doesn't need, while others are being denied, though they truly are disabled.

We're moving to another state so maybe new judges will see the seriousness of his case.

That is ridiculous. I'm sorry perfectly healthy people are being approved while you get denied. Our government is so fucked up.

My son keeps getting denied. He's severe ADHD, PDD-NOS (high functioning autistic), has sensory motor issues and issues with his fine motor skillsm, asthmatic, has allergies and is pre-diabetic. *sighs* I cannot even hold down a full time job with all his multiple appointments and he will always need to be cared for.

I've made his little sister promise to take care of him if something ever happens to me. I don't ever want him to feel unwanted or that he is a burden. I love him so much.

My sister is not disabled by this. She can work and hold a job, she chooses not to. It's sad.

an old school friend of mine got it just by going in with mismatched clothing and dirty hair, to be fair she isn't the brightest bulb of the bunch but her other street friends told her how to get it ,,,,meanwhile my father had to reapply 3 time to get it for coronary artery disease and ended up only getting it when he had a slipped disk in his back
