How do even one realize ?
My doc said I am at 50 % ?
Is’t that too high,
I feel I am fine may be 30 or 25 %
But yes i dont do anything productive.
All I know, these days I dont cook, dependent on parents on everything, and i talk here as though, i am doing it all right
But I feel fine, or there is really something wrong?
Which I dont realize ?
How do even one realize ?
My disability is probably high but not cognitively. I would rather be disabled and sane than crazy and not disabled.
I think Drs compare you to the standard not mentally ill, independent, having a job, etc
My doc spoke to my parents and my mom bust into tears, i asked here whats wrong, she said she felt to cry and did not say much.
My parents used to cry when I was in psychosis or in mental hospital. But now they don’t anymore as they say I am much better now on meds. I still think that they prefer me to be independent and having a job but I do what I can.
Oh ok, i feel what i am doing is right, just sitting at home, doing nothing. But what you said is true, its hard for me to interact and have a conversation, and be independent far from having a job.
Like I can’t work as I get stressed too easily then it’s paranoia. Otherwise, when the stress is low, I function pretty well but it’s still way different to most people. I had a chat with my shrink yesterday and he is reluctant to put me on a disability program as he says I’m not that disabled in the scheme of things…Still live differently to most.
My psychiatrist says that I’m higher performing than many neurotypicals and me listing all the things I do makes her feel tired. My cardiologist greets me with, “you’re not dead yet?”
It’s a mixed bag.
Yes I am been assigned for vocational training by the doc, should go next week. Dont know how its gonna be?
"What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. "
I recollect this, i think its from a song.
You are truely a high performer. Imo too
It probably makes me more stubborn. Not sure about stronger.
Here the disability committee
diagnosed me with 67% disability
They never gave me a % here but they told me to quit university.
You know what my neurologist said to me? “Oh, have you fallen yet? That’s what’s going to happen soon.” and I was like, “No, I haven’t fallen yet.” and he was like, “Oh okay, so it’s going to get worse from now on.”
Yeah, that was the entire appointment!
This is entirely too familiar.
Yeah, apparently it comes up in every single neurology appointment I go to.
I did that too, before moving to where I am now.
They declared me +66% disabled. That’s what you need to get benefits.
But I have gotten slightly better so maybe working will work.
I get all of it at the moment, but with one I am entitled to the higher payment but waiting for them to process the review - which could take months!
The VA rated my disability at 100%. For life. I will never have another review. Permanently and totally disabled.
