Often missing from the reports about Gretchen Molannen is the fact that she was denied claims and appeals by the Saint Petersburg office of the Social Security Administration.

The Tampa Bay area offices of the Social Security Administration are there to deny benefits to people who deserve them. In most case, the process ends up traumatizing already traumatized people.

I hope the people at the local office of the St. Petersburg take note and stop abusing people who have valid claims.

The criteria for a claim is that the disability last a year or more, or that it results in death. I guess the administrative law judge at St. Petersburg will give the money to those she leaves behind, but I know that will never happen. Her case is now "closed."

But if you are a drunk and you ruin your own liver, or have kids and you've destroyed your life on crack, the Social Security Administration is all over themselves to give these people benefits. Check out Williams Park sometime after a Social Security "payday."

The Social Security Administration abuses people who are already traumatized. They are the real killers of Gretchen Molannen.

You're "outraged" that this woman didn't walk in and wasn't immediately handed a check because she "really really really" had a condition? Okay.

This is a sad story and probably happens more often than we wish it did.

Write to your state representatives and Congress and get things changed - Topix can't do anything to help the situation.

Be the answer to the problem, instead of the person spreading the story.

The only thing that these idiots respond to are publicity. Places like the social security administration need to be shamed into doing the right thing.

They should have helped this woman but they contributed to her suicide.

No. She should have a disability where she can't work, then have no money for years while idiots at the social security administration deny her claim hoping that she will give up or kill herself. If she were in Europe, they would have helped her. For being number one, the U.S.A. is sure last in caring about people.

This is a problem with the social security administration and the VA. Why should it take 11 years (yes I said 11 years) for a vet to get disability after fighting for their country. They had to so for appeal after appeal, after appeal. Fighting the VA is worse than fighting a foreign enemy.

Social security administration is the same thing. Work, pay your dues, then they don't want to pay you. Watch out because the way our wonderful economy is going everyone who is counting on their social security and health benefits will end up like this woman.

Sadly Gretchen couldn't get the help she needed from the medical community because of lack of knowledge, couldn't get social security disability to help her because of lack of knowledge and sadly after suffering so badly for 16 long agonizing years she most likely couldn't bare the thought of suffering any longer. I suffer from PNE Pudendal nerve entrapment (bilateral), which could be a very good possibility of what Gretchen was suffering with. What that is a nerve that comes out of your sacrum (the Pudendal Nerve) leads down through your genital region and has control over your genital functions and if this nerve is pinched, trapped or damaged in anyway it can have very serious symptoms, from everything Gretchen described including the worst pain I have ever felt in my entire life. I don't suffer the exact same pain Gretchen did, my nerve entrapment's are in other locations. I for one know how long getting a diagnosis can be, how many Doctors, Specialists, tests, x-rays, mri's, CATscans, etc. and sadly even after going through all of that and paying so much money out of your pocket you'll most of the time hear the dreaded words, I can't find anything wrong with you, sorry we can't help. I was misdiagnosed for 8 long agonizing years, and I'm in the process now of saving the funds to have a PN Neurography test to determine exactly where my entrapment's are located, then I need to find a surgeon who can perform the Pudendal nerve decompression surgery for me but sadly there are only a handful of Doctor and Surgeons in the world who understand this, treat it, and perform the surgery's. I have made it my goal to send PNE information to as many medical locations I possibly can until hopefully one day soon the medical field will understand it and more Doctors and Surgeons will treat it. My hopes are that no one will suffer like Gretchen did, in silence and with no help or answers for all that time. God rest her beautiful soul, her story touched my heart in more ways then I'll ever be able to express. I was Blessed to have found this story while doing more research and I'm thankful I did because I also passed it along so other's will know they don't have to suffer in silence, we can help if we just show the courage and speak out and try to educate as many people as we possibly can.

The local Social Security Administration in Pinellas County, Florida are nothing but murderers.

If anyone tries to file for Social Security with a disability they are automatically turned down. One, two three times or more and you'll never get help from them. Just abused by the system.

They have it worked out with lawyers to get a "cut" of everyone's disability. So the Social Security Administration sleeps with the lawyers and they take a cut of the money. The Social Security Administration are both crooks and murderers.

They should have helped this woman, instead they killed her with red-tape.

I urge everyone in the United States to write your congressmen and put stories on the Internet about these killers at the Social Security Administration.

I doubt those cold-hearted bureaucrats care about anything or anyone except themselves. I'll bet people didn't know that most of these cases are decided by psychologists and doctors who have never even seen the person making the claim.

What a sham!
