Just when you think it can't get worse on disability benefits
Sometimes when I write a post, I'll mention the devastating financial aspects of filing for social security disability or SSI, because, as we all know, it's difficult to subsist without some form of income, and applying for disability benefits can be an incredibly long process.
However, even for those who do get approved, life is still no cakewalk. Let's face it, a disability check doesn't go that far. And being on disability means living a very limited life that, doubtless, is composed of bill juggling and all the stress and anxiety that comes with that.
Here's a post from another blogger who, without a doubt, is having it very rough. Just When You Think It Can't Get Worse! . As you'll notice, David's concerns include taking care of basic needs (such as food and utilities), the continuation of his medical coverage, and speculating about the possibility of returning to work.
Regarding the work issue, this is something that many individuals (whether they're considering filing for disability, have already filed for disability, or have been approved for disability) find themselves pondering...despite the fact that their condition causes a significant amount of pain and is easily aggravated.
However, returning to work on a limited basis can be a dangerous proposition for someone who receives disability benefits, particularly when it comes to maintaining medical coverage.
