Exclamation Stats on SSD from gov

As promised here are some SSD stats from our government--newest year being 2003. This is a government site with great charts! I hope this link is accepted to be displayed.

It seems SSD for mental illness is in the lead. The age groups are very interesting also.
Lupus, MCTD, Vasculitis, RA, Radiculopathy, T10 &12, L4&5, S1> DDD & Facet Arthritis, OA, HTN, Fibromyalgia, and Hashimotos

Re: Stats on SSD from gov

hi september,
thank you. i went there and had a look around. most interesting in a heartbreaking way.
i found my origional papers while searching for stuff the mortgage broker needed. it said that while they felt i could work with fibromyalgia and cts they felt i was emotionally unable to sustain the normal stress of working. due to that they granted my request for social security. i gave that a good thinking over. while i spent years in therapy to find my way back from the emotional abyss i still am unhinged by any form of stress. it comes out as incredible body pain. i fracture and cannot think. multi tasking is not an ability, it is a gift. one i no longer have within.
thru the past years of coming to a peaceful place in my health i came to understand that just because i could no longer work did not mean i was suddenly useless or a drag on society.
again i thank you for your efforts. you are a peach!
