sounds like you are applying for disability? I wish you luck, I really do...
If I remember right, and this was about 7 or so years ago, so I might not, they will use your medical records...as well as the opinion of one of their
own doctors?? maybe....
so well, if I am right, their doctor might find you unable to work.
My problem was that disablility didn't cover the condition I was diagnosed as having, and the doctor was too lazy to send in the paperwork they were
required by law, and I just decided it wasn't worth fighting for. There was other ways to make money that wasn't so hard on the feet that I could
do. I just didn't anticipate the problem getting worse like it did, and ending up with a few broken bones in my ankle. which then laid me up for 6
by then we had relocated and I found a less physically demanding job that earned me more money.. now, I am just waiting to see how the hernia does
with that work, and what problems clear up and what don't connected to that, and then I will decide if I need to get me a even less physical
ya know, you might also want to do a search for car pooling online, I've noticed that there are a few sites out there that serve to link up commuters
for car pools...find yourself a job that doesn't demand too much physically. what the heck, a good portion of the workforce now just sits at a desk
and pushes folders around all day....
there are also sites for telecommuters out there. The one that I am signed up on has tests on many different subjects that you can take to prove to
the perspective businesses that you know what you are talking about. For the ones that I would feel comfortable with taking at the moment the pay
isn't too great. But, well, I have spent time learning about website design and such, even have a site about ready to go live..so, I could probably
pass a few of those tests in that area.
don't give up, keep trying, technically, I think I am disabled now, I think that I at least deserve one of those little signs for my car so I ain't
got to walk a mile into a store..I mean I see people jumping out of those cars and running into the store....I can't run, wouldn't even be able run
from a burning building...
but there are plenty of jobs out there that I can do, if they give me a chance. and I know it. I also know that that disability check ain't gonna
be enough to meet my needs, is gonna cost me most of the money that I get in doctor's bills to continually prove that I am disabled, and well....just
ain't gonna make the grade.
one of my coworkers has a daughter that has two fake wrists, one was put in when she was a kid, the other was put in recently, and they just did one
of her ankles. she was born with a problem with her joints...
she has gone to college and has a rather good job.
can't imagine what the bills would be like though....
okay, back to the real issue of the cost of the medical care....
the cost of it is ensuring that we all, don't think it matters weather we are rich or poor, are more than likely gonna die in debt! whatever we
accumulate to pass down to our kids will more than likely have to be sold off to pay that debt off, or as much of it as possible...it's just a part
of a much bigger scam to defraud the people and gather the wealth into the hands of the few. you have an economic system now where the cost and
demand ratio has been artifically twisted...since somewhere in that cost and demand ratio, one should have to include the ability of the people to pay
the cost, or well, in normal circumstances, too few people would be able to buy your product. thus, you product is infeasible and you should find
another product to peddle.
our healthcare is an infeasible product, it's only there because of the ponzi schemes that are propping it up...medicaid, medicare, and insurance
in the long run I think we will find that we would have been better off with a less advanced system that was kept within the bounds of our ability to
pay for it .
