Even though I have a debilitating disease, I cannot get disability because I went to college. So basically, if I had dropped out of high school I could. I have worked all my life, got an education and then came down with this disease. It's a rare autoimmune disease that is extremely painful and can result in cancer later in life. This is so wrong on so many levels.

I called Daryl Isaacs and they are the ones that told me that. They said I'd have to prove that I couldn't work anywhere in the USA. My disease is extremely rare but you can find it if you google it and I obviously was diagnosed with it from a doctor back in 2006. They had to take a biopsy to confirm it. It is the worst disease a woman can get that isn't contagious. I have to have a biopsy every 6 months because it can turn into cancer.
I guess I have to get cancer before I can get the disability benefits that I have worked for for the last 25 years.

I really hate this for you, but it seems that if you have a work history, it is next to impossible to get benefits for a legitimate disability. If you pretended to be a drug addict or a drunk, you would be approved tomorrow! Guess the Social Security Admin. needs to keep all of us WORKERS going until we just fall over dead on the job so we can support all of the deadbeats! Good luck and I wish you all the best. Get a good lawyer.

I am so relieved to see your post, as I am in the EXACT same position for the exception that my autoimmune disease isn't so rare.

Find work anywhere in the USA?? OMG that pisses me off!! Just where in the hell is the money to make the move supposed to come from as I CAN'T FIND WORK, and my savings are LONG gone since laid off back in 2007. While still looking for work after the lay off the symptoms started and if that wasn't hell enough to go through THAT - the PAINFUL testing ad nauseum - I continued looking for work which was becoming more and more physically difficult let alone emotionally. Single parent, 2 children and my career GONE.

I have exactly 110 resumes out, and have gotten exactly 3 call backs. By law we are to make them aware that we have this medical issue so I did that with the first 2. They were all excited, as was I (!), and hired but hadn't started yet UNTIL I disclosed that information. All of a sudden it was every lame bs excuse you could make up to avoid officially hiring me. The third interview, again I got the job, but didn't disclose. DAY 3 I was let go as my information came back to them so was then let go for lieing by omission. Couldn't begin to afford an attorney to sue the hell out of them, but technically they're right so YES.. beyond discouraged, outraged, and YES MAJORLY PISSED OFF AND STRESSED OUT.

Treatment for my condition was $26K/YR. I say WAS because there is no way in hell I can afford it! Back when I started treatment (savings went POOF) it was not only painful as hell, but in the end made NO difference to the disease.

So now what?? OMG I so cannot stand the person that I have become since all of this, but I am so angry and you bet depressed that it's a vicious circle and I haven't the first clue where to break the cycle let alone how. Around here you can REALLY forget it, the docs are ALL about "here's some pills" a mountain of Xanax. NO thanks, the LAST thing I need is a damn drug addiction on top of everything else you incompetent azzholes!

Yep, you bet, illiterate druggies having kids, drop outs with never having even the first idea nor care of what it is to break your azz making the grades, the focus, the diligence, proving your viability by WORKING and maintaining reliability and education, YOU ARE ZERO when it comes to qualifying for disability!

Damn right I'm bitter!! And, if you're a repub with your fucking attitude of "Hahahaha!" because I am NOW of the 47% Please please PLEASE come on an LOL in my face. Those like TartanToeRag et al. You figure it can't happen to you. I wasn't even STUPID ENOUGH to believe that for myself, yet here I am!

You had BETTER pray it doesn't happen to you. And, if it does? Know that the LOL'ing will be from YOUR OWN fellow POS ilk, not US!... and, that's sweet enough payback for me!

You sure you didn't get it from not using a rubber? We didn't use rubbers in Happy Holler and we are fine except cousin Homer he's got a penis and a vagina! His sister Ruthie has an extra eye on her chin and and a forked tongue.Also one of her nipples is 2 inches and the other one looks like a mule's dick hanging down.

I have to tell you I was shocked. Never in my life would I have believed it. Especially knowing people around here that are on disability but have done nothing but maybe sell pills or wash cars a couple of years of their lives. I was in perfect health when this disease decided to take over my body. The prognosis is very grim. That's what I get for working and going to school.

I am depressed. Severely depressed. I don't see any docs like that because I'm afraid I would lose my kids.

I have a friend that worked at least 20 years. She has a college education and has not been able to work for the last few years due to her MS.(Multiple Scerosis) She cannot get social security disability. She is not disabled enough. She is someone that I think can't work and should be eligible for Soc. Security. I guess each case is different, I do know her situation. She did work several years after her initial diagnosis and was glad that she could still work. Now she can't.

The state of Tn., does not want to give anything to anyone, deserving or not. They will make it hard on you, keep pushing. People really need to know the difference between republican and democrat when they vote. East Tn., has a lot of illness, and poverty, they need help, but they vote against it.

REPUBS vote against helping the one's that paid into the system for all of their working lives.

As to your "State of TN doesn't want to give anything to anyone deserving or not"??? WTF?? It's the one's that don't deserve it that get ALL of the State help... the one's that DO deserve it, those that have paid into it are the ones that have to go through hell and FIGHT to get the slightest help!

Did anyone know that in TN now at 18 and NO dependents, that that 18 yr old can get FS, TC, and housing for free??? Never worked a day in their life, BUT ARE PERFECTLY ABLE, and don't even have to have kids, or be pregnant!! But those of us in the same boat as the couple of posters that have posted on here (add me too, now) that are clearly going through hell that have always been productive citizens until 'life happened' can't get the first iota of help, and need LAWYERS to even stand a chance at GETTING BACK WHAT WE'VE PUT IN. That SAME MONEY WE PUT IN THEY GIVE FREELY AWAY TO THE DRUGGIES, LAZY FK TEENS et al.... yeah there's something WAY wrong with that!!

Being taken care of by the government does not make you strong. It makes you weak and dependent.

The Tea Party seems to be the ONLY ones who see the writing on the wall. How much longer do you think this country is going to survive when less and less of us are working to keep up more and more of you lazy asses? At least the Tea Party folks realize this and probably most are preparing for the worst. Greed and cowardice??????? The only greedy, cowards I see are the sorry, lazy, jealous check-drawers! Those "greedy, rich" people you fools like to "piss and moan" about, at least earned what they have. They don't lay on their asses all day long and wait by the mailbox for the money stolen by the government from the rest of us and given to undeserving idiots like you.
