So, I've been fighting to get Social Security for over a year now. I just got my THIRD denial letter... three... really?
They aren't taking any of my actual "problems" in to account. Spasticity.... it's not just like a back spasm here and there, it's different, a pain I could never full describe to someone who hasn't experienced it for themselves.
I wouldn't be "sitting" around trying to get Social Security, if I didn't feel that I needed it/deserved it. If I can't write/type a paper for school, without assistance that's saying something.
One thing is, a lot of my "typing" comes from me speaking in to my iPad w/ the Dragon app, and the copy pasting it in to an e-mail, sending it to myself... and then pasting it in to word and submitting it... Is that saying something?
It takes me an HOUR to actually get moving around w/ out not wanting to just curl up in a ball and go back to sleep. It's pretty ridiculous that the people that decide if i'm eligible to work or not... are eligible to work. I had a job interview last year, but the day before my interview, I had a really bad flare up and was diagnosed.
It makes me sick to my stomach to know that there are so many people out there that need assistance, but then there are people out there that abuse the system. For Christ sakes... I can't even clean my house anymore... well like I used to.
Anything and everything I used to do, has now been ... modified, so that it can be done... It's just draining, to have to "fight" to PROVE that I actually cannot do the things that they think I can.
