The reason for my denial it says is because the disability office(apparently they are doctors lol) doesn't think my condition will last more than a year. I just went to the doctor and the hole wear my anus was is still almost 6cm deep. So after packing it since july and carying around the wound vac for a few months it has done absolutely no good as far as helping it heal. And sitting prevents healing. They also said I should be able to do a substantial amount of work.
I talked to a lawyer and she said they still may not approve me because they think I can do something like "Sell tickets at a movie theatre".
I asked her why people who have back injuries or depression and can really work get it. She says that they are lying or that their case is so severe like they have to have proof that they have tried to commit suicide etc..
She sent me a bunch of papers but it could take up to a year or more to get approved.
I don't have many bills because I used to work 60-80 hours a week before this and pay everything off, but I still have a little bit of a car payment, rent, phone bill, food etc to pay for.
And yes I know people that know people who have dissability and do all kinds of under the table work. Even construction type stuff.
Oh and yes I got my ostomy because of crohns. I was on every single medicine imaginable and nothing worked anymore.
