Kittn ... It's amazing that Depression trumps Chronic Pain when one needs
Disability. if one is carrying PAIN all the time and if it is intractible, I can't imagine
how one could not be Depressed. And with Depression comes Anxiety. The
inability to perform daily tasks due to profound Depression causes Anxiety.
You just kinda lay there with work to perform and no way to do it. I think it
should be called CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME.
If I was giving Disability, I'd look for Intractible Pain, Depression, and Anxiety.
With all that stuff going on in your body, something else may go wrong because
of lack of exercise and inability to prepare healthful foods.
My spine shows all sorts of problems from MRI. (I guess that's a good thing
if I ever needed to go for disability.)
I have heard you need to apply three times before they take action. (This is not
reliable information but just some words that passed over my eyes)
