I'm on full disability, live by myself, and no family in the state where I live. I don't have tv, I mostly read books, and read and play on social media.

That’s fucking depressing. What disability?


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixt2wc6 wrote

It can be. I have PTSD, COPD, bipolar, social anxiety (interacting like this is fine, I'm just rarely able to leave my house. There's various other associated illnesses. I get by shrugs

Wow- why did you have to say that? It was extremely rude, and something you would never say in person to someone’s face. Please grow a heart. Or at the very least- learn some manners. And of course they are disabilities. Educate yourself about this type of pain, and what it is like to walk a day in their shoes. Anyone who is still working (or not) who has these disabilities goes through pain 24 hours a day. Talk to some of those people you work with and ask them what they think the future holds for them.

Jesus you sound like every cliche. I won’t ask them because I honestly don’t give a shit. But op isn’t actually disabled like can’t walk he just has some mental issues that you could easily hold a job with and not rely on tax payers.

According to SSA and the military, PTSD qualifies as such, and I get paid accordingly.

The law defines disability as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment(s) which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

And? There are varying degrees, as there is with anything. Don't tell me you think it's easy to to get qualified for SSi. My pcp, psychiatrist, and therapist, would all disagree with you

I don’t know how hard it is to apply for an ssi cuz I’ve never applied for one

It's not easy. The government likes to take money, not pay it out.

I hope they don’t like to pay it out. It’s tax payer dollars
