I realize there are are bunch of posts here about disability, and tons of good information, but I am currently thinking of applying, and I want to hear some more about the human side of the decision making process as opposed to the mechanics of how to go about it....
Any of you that are on disability, what was the final push that led you to that decision, if you don't mind sharing.
This may be TMI, but today I realized how much thought and actual STRATEGY, it takes just for me to get up and go to the toilet. In a strange way it has become second nature, and actually, I'm really not even that depressed about it, it just is what it is ...BUT...I don't know how much longer I can survive this way and be even marginally competent at ANY job.
I realize that every path is unique, but I would really appreciate any stories that any of you can tell about when that path(disability) became the obvious choice.
