Are you really DISABLED?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So what do you consider acceptable disorder or illness in order to qualify for disability? I ask bc for years I denied the fact that I was ill. I kept saying I can get an job and keep it and when I ended up in the hospital for it bc my health issues got bad. I finally realized I couldn't do it anymore. Today I got my first help applying for disability and I sometiems feel like I don't deserve help thanks to my ex h's words. And yet I know working is physically impossible at this time and admitting that really hurt. But you can only live in denial for so long. (Title is to get you to read this)

I agree with you. Why cant you get disability?


Quoting StoneColdKiller:

I can't work but I also can't get disability. Oh well. I think anything that makes working impossible should be a disability enough for SSI.

Thank you. That was appreciated. I needed to listen to that.


Quoting Anonymous:

Sounds to me like you've got a good work ethic and it's hard for you to swallow your pride to accept help. 

There's nothing wrong with using the system when you legitimately need it.

Well good for you but I do need it.


Quoting wkukid:

I qualify several times over for disability. I don't draw because I don't need it.

I don't, but dh most certainly is and he still works. You can with VA disability though. He's had 4 knee replacements, has limited feeling in his right hand, is partially deaf in his left ear, and suffers from PTSD. Being at home drives him crazy though so he continues to work.
