Are you really DISABLED?

So what do you consider acceptable disorder or illness in order to qualify for disability? I ask bc for years I denied the fact that I was ill. I kept saying I can get an job and keep it and when I ended up in the hospital for it bc my health issues got bad. I finally realized I couldn't do it anymore. Today I got my first help applying for disability and I sometiems feel like I don't deserve help thanks to my ex h's words. And yet I know working is physically impossible at this time and admitting that really hurt. But you can only live in denial for so long. (Title is to get you to read this)

    I can't work but I also can't get disability. Oh well. I think anything that makes working impossible should be a disability enough for SSI.

    Well, what is your diagnosis? Some are clearly disabling, some are not.

    Sounds to me like you've got a good work ethic and it's hard for you to swallow your pride to accept help. 

    There's nothing wrong with using the system when you legitimately need it.

    I qualify several times over for disability. I don't draw because I don't need it.
