I've thought about applying too. I wonder where the cut off is between "disabled" and "abled" in the government's eyes? I know that some of us work because we have to but probably shouldn't be working. Does that make sense?

Makes plenty of sense. I've had seizures on the job and busted my head open, had one while driving and ran off the road into a tree, had one at church in the bathroom and broke the ceramic sink(I have a hard I could go on and on. I just think it would be safer for me not to work. Everyone I ask says if they deny you just keep trying. All we can do is try I guess.
