Depression, anxiety, and pain so bad

Dec 07, 2015 12:16 PM

Today I got the decision on the disability hearing and they said no. I can't do this anymore. I am pain 24/7and all of everything else that is going on. In 1999 my dad passed right before thanksgiving and sandy passing right after so now I don't even care about doing all the baking and decorate for Christmas now.

Have you considered looking into a morphine pump for pain control?

I'm sorry for your losses. I have lot of health issues 3 u mentioned n quite a f ew more. I'm trying to check myself into a hospital. So they can get my medicine right. My PTSD n bipolar r really bad. Uncontrollable crying today n everytime u turn around. Took me from 2000 till 2012 to get approved. Had to stop working too in 2009 to fight them. Don't give up. There's always someone worse off than you. Good luck...

Jnutsch, I'm so sorry for your loses and the disappointing decision. Have you hired a lawyer to help you? I was turned down even though doctors say I'm disabled. I hired a lawyer last year. I found out in August that social security only ordered info from 3 doctors, none of which has anything to do with me no longer being able to work. I've had to see over 16 specialists. My lawyer has requested a hearing, which is backlogged 14-16 months, but he's pretty sure I will be approved. I understand about Christmas. My mom passed in 1999, my dad has Alzheimer's, and we won't see our kids/grandkids until after Christmas. I mentioned going to a bed & breakfast to my hubby, so it would seem happier, to do something different. Please don't give up. Hire a lawyer and take that stress of your back. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers! (((Hugs))) 🙏🌼
