I need to make more effort attending social events. Trying is so tiring only when you’re surrounded by loneliness.
I would like one that says “keep calm it’s only CP”
“tl;dr: 21 year old female w/ lupus since age 8, applied for disability and got denied twice. Need to know how to go about getting a lawyer for a court appeal and general advice is greatly appreciated.
I am a 21 year old female that has had lupus from the age of 8. I had a kidney transplant at the age of 16. The lupus was in remission and is now back in full swing. In the last year alone its caused me to have blood clots and barely be able to walk or stand on most days.
My condition is so bad that I can’t work. I used to be a cashier. I even had a bar stool to sit on. But by the end of the day I’d leave in tears and limping. I was in culinary school when I came out of remission and every five hour class would leave me rushing out of the room just so I could find a place to sit before my body literally gave out on me.
Which has led me to apply for disability. I cannot function like an adult. I cannot support myself. I understand that its a headache. But upon checking the disability website’s list of disabled medical conditions found my disease firmly among others. I applied. I was denied. I applied again. I have been denied again.
The reason for my first denial was that I just needed to do less physical work (That is what the denial letter said), as I was finishing my externship at culinary school, which was me sitting on a bar stool working a cash register, since my school didn’t want me to be injured as I’d just gotten out of the hospital with blood clots.
The second denial, which I received today was because a panel of experts from my state determined that my health conditions didn’t qualify as disabled or blind under their guidelines….Even though my condition is clearly listed on the disability website.
So here is where I need help. I feel its time I seek out a lawyer and request an appeal in front of a judge. But I have never contacted a lawyer in my life. I have no idea how to go about doing any of this. If anyone has any advice for me, I’d sincerely appreciate it. At this point I’m just one big ball of crying and pain. Any help you can provide would be wonderful.
Thank you all in advance.”
