Re: Your SSI (Disibility ins.)
I don't know where you're from but I want to share my story with you.
I also was a supervisor (Administrative Manager, 21 yrs.)
Were you let go b/c of your seizures? If so, that is illegal. It is a form of decrimination and goes against the Human Rights Code as well as the Constitution.
I'm from Canada and it seems to me that Americans always seem to have a very hard time qualifying for Social Assistance or Disability Insurance but I had absolutely no trouble and either should you if you have a good Doctor that will stand behind you.
VIEW IMAGEI am on disability, have been since February/05. It wasn't hard for me at all. My application went in while I was still working. I didn't even have to apply and just had to supply a medical from my neurologist-no problem, I've been seeing him for 16 yrs. *** Please understand-THIS WAS NOT MY CHOICE. My employer of 30 yrs (Government of Canada) applied for the DI for me and then if Sun Life Financial decides to drop my case then medical retirement will automatically start. After a 5 yr fight to keep my job I was told that my job had become redundant and as a side effect of the meds. it made me slower and messed up my learning ability to learn new tasks. I don't like people to know that I'm on disability because it has a certain"stigma" attached to it.
Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
