Thanks! That was very helpful. I am disabled and currently on disability. I hope to get a job, once stabilized, more out of need than actually because my health won't be an issue. I basically get VERY little monetary assistance
due to not enough work history and not qualifying for actual Disability but on SSI. So basically I am poverty level. I wouldn't be able to even cover my rent if it weren't for my parents assistance! But they are looking to retire soon and won't financially be able to help. And my assistance will never increase...actually it continually decreases when say, my rent, goes up
I have an 8 yr old son and times are tough. He needs a lot of extra support due to Tourettes and some other issues. I am really scared for the future and am afraid. If I don't get a job...WE won't be able to survive on what we currently get and money is not allowed to be saved/invested for the future. I am not sure if I am even capable of working due to the debilitating and life threatening nature of my illness. Which is, at present, being stabalized but can change at any time.
Well sorry for ranting...was getting off topic...like you were saying I should be vague to the nurse. Even though they can't "discriminate" against disabled, if they knew my condition, they most likely wouldn't want to hire me. Stuck between a rock and a hard place. If I attempted to work (which I did in the past) you are dropped IMMEDIATELY from benefits and it's not easy to get back on. And, actually I am more worried because of my son. If it was just me...I could do with very little.
Well not even sure what I am asking anymore...but thank you. Definitely no guarantees in this world.
