At what point should a dr. Declare you disabled? I had a bad car accident. I have 10 herniated discs, and my knees are destroyed. I have had 250 injections, 9 epidural, spinal fusion, 3 knee surgeries. I haven't been able to work. Every time I try I end up in the hospital with a flair up and needing steroids. I have gone to the ED 5 times. I just can't keep job hunting and feeling like a failure it crushing my self-esteem and the volume of appointments is rediculous. Does anyone have advice to dive me on what I should be doing. Like I just don't think I can work. Is my Dr. Failing me and not addressing my issues? I have lost almost everything.
