They say don’t talk about it.. don’t let know one know that you’re trying to get your Disability.. and for awhile I fell into that lie.. it’s crazy that we should keep to ourselves how the government is treating us..
It wasn’t my choice to become disabled.. to wake up one morning and no longer be able to do my job.. to no longer be able to sit, stand, and walk around comfortably.. I didn’t choose to have a life where I can’t bend and only use my left hand for short periods at a time.. I didn’t choose to now have to lay in bed two hours before I can start my day because that’s how long it takes the medicine to work.. Do you think I chose not to be able to go shopping by myself.. Do you think I chose not to be able to just get in my car and drive as long as I want.. Do you think I chose to just give up my job of twenty years.. to lose my job family..
Well to answer the SSD question no I didn’t.. This not the life I envision at fifty for me.. but here I am suffering from chronic pain and depression.. and because I have worked my whole life and pay into this government system yes I feel I deserve my money.. its not the governments money it’s OUR MONEY people who have worked their whole life and because our bodies and in some cases minds too have failed us instead of being treated like a person we are treated like an outcast..
We are made to wait two years just to see the Judge.. then another five months just for a decesion.. then we are turned down because if we can COUNT CHANGE their is nothing wrong with us.. or because we can go to the doctor who we have to see then because I was able to walk in there; there couldn’t possibly be anything wrong with me..
People have lost everything they work so hard for because there bodies and failed them.. I’m talking about people who got up everyday and went to work because they believe in the system that was supposed to be there to HELP them when they needed it but instead has FAILED US and cost a lot of us everything we own..
The SSD system that’s set up to make you prove that your sick as you say.. the system that has your money that you faithfully gave them every pay check.. the system that wants us to be quiet and don’t talk about how we suffer hoping to be APROVED FOR OUR MONEY..
DONT JUST SIT QUIETLY MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.. CALL YOUR Governor..
