vj2004t saidNone of you guys know anything about .this I have been on disability for over ten years now I was diagnosed with cirrhosis no not from drinking its on my fathers side side of the family too. My dads mom died of Cirrhosis.
Going thru disability was it took three years to get it with two attorneys and federal court. My case file was 4 inches thick from doctors and SS DOCTOR in the courtroom telling the administrative law judge in his opinion I could never return to work. The law Judge turned me down for disability. I refiled in
Alabama and with the help of a Senator and state rep. and federal attorney Alabama adudicated the case and i finally got it.
So everyone on disability are not dead beats, Well I am one of you guys thankful to be alive and able to stay fit or at least a good stab at it.
A lot of people who apply for disability are turned down and it is usually a three year fight with no income one silver lining I had long term disability from my last job to sustain me.
I have met people that should be on disability and are denied. And unless they can sustain a three year fight they wont make it. Guys dont be so judgemental and lump everyone together that there all dead beats. I hope to God none of you have to go on Disability you will have to change your story and opinion.
If you will look at my profile it talks about "Gods working even when you cant see him" well the state of Alabama paid for my operation $80,000 dollars worth at University of Birmingham Liver Center. So guys 'LET HIM THAT IS WITHOUT BIASED JUDGEMENTAL SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE"..SS, Disability, are very very needed, for everyone that needs it. I AM NOT A DEADBEAT LOOKING FOR A HANDOUT. Val
You're on disability because you can't work, but you exercise and body build...?
Maybe I missed something, but I'm confused.
The fact that you had a hard time getting disability doesn't strike me as super relevant either. Not only because, as just mentioned, you clearly exercise and are physically active, but because it doesn't change the fact that ~5% of working age Americans are on it for reasons that, at first blush, often seem ridiculous.
