I underdtand you are angry, however to put everyone in a category is totally uncalled for. My son has SSI, he deserves it. I stayed at home with him for a whole year while he fought for his life, he could not leave the house, I had to monitor him 24 hours a day! 5 surgeries, doctors, spceialist, that little bit of change he gets from SSI never makes up for what we spend! I just posted about assumptions people make about those who receives services. I now work, I have a degree and so does my husband and we both work, however, with my sons needs we receives SSI. please do not make assumptions, you have no idea what other ppl go through, and just because one person may be lazy do not put the rest of us in a box thank you.

There will aways be people who abuse the system ...I would like to think they are in the minority.......  then there are individuals who really need the help like the poster above. I couldn't imagine having to go through what her family had to endure...  To Bad the ones who abuse/manipulate the system don't use their brains in a noble manner...  some people have no pride or self worth ....
