Anyone able to work should be there are those who simply can't someone sitting there telling me near 10 million a people are on disability there is
something rotten in denmark.
that there are people who game the system. Given my own experience trying to get disability though, it has been next to impossible. I
am aware that even mentioning that I am attempting to get disability will gain the ire of many posters, regardless of the medical issue, but it is
what it is.
It is extremely frustrating to me that people are even considered
for disability with things like anxiety and depression, much less
I have many medical issues, but the main issue is very, very severe osteoporosis. My back/spine has been broken for nearly 18 months now, as well as
my hip. They will not heal due to the osteoporosis, and if you have ever broken a bone, you can imagine that this is debilitating. It basically
feels like the moment you broke that bone, but it never improves and the pain never stops. It is a constant state of severe pain. I have to make
sure I sneeze and cough in a certain way because I am in danger of breaking my neck...
And yet, I am told by SSD that I am perfectly fine to work 40 hours a week, and there are plenty of jobs I can do. They even said that one of those
jobs was shipping/stocking as well as construction!
Then they give it to people who have something like depression? While my medical bills continue to stack up due to continuing treatment and I go
further into debt to literally save my life
, it is determined that someone who is depressed is more worthy of assistance?
It is truly and deeply insulting. I am currently on my third appeal.
