I'm personally in a quandary on the topic. On one hand you can want to work, and on the other you aren't quite so off that the average person will call you disabled, but are at the point where you are ill-bodied enough that you can't work full-time. It's really hard for me because I'll probably have to come to terms with it soon and I'm only 24. My depression is already bad enough that I've lost one job I was extremely skilled at, and at my current job I have to choose between lots of back pain and teeth-gritting back pain within 15 minutes.

It's depressing the most since I want to get back into machining, but I don't know how long it will be before it's too painful to stand there and operate one. Then there is the almost as depressing option of getting disability and then still not being able to do anything meaningful. I'm already watching my best friend, who is a nervous wreck of a shut-in, near a depressive breakdown in how she lives her life, or rather doesn't live, on disability. I know I'd be little different.

The reason you get stories of disabled people buying drugs and alcohol is that it's ofttimes the only way to not outright kill themselves, although there are plenty of "compassionate conservatives" who would relish that. I've seen it firsthand and it's not pretty and very difficult as a friend to handle, let alone family. It's a wild shiatstorm of depression where people are barely able to stay sane. That's the main reason I don't want it, but it's only a matter of time before I can't support myself any other way.

/Fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

SevenizGud: Get a job or die trying.

Don't work...don't eat. It's that simple.


Right now I have you Farky'd as "WK for Clarence Thomas" but ""Don't work... don't eat" works too.

Kind of funny how the party that wants to deny evolution are the biggest social Darwinists on the planet.

/Didn't say it was the *good* type of funny.

I like the way they make it sound as if one "joins" disability the same way one joins a card game.
