Well........I say THEY'RE WRONG. Bone spurs can cause a lot of pain. I know because I had a very large, hooked, bone spur on my left heel. When the foot surgery was done for tarsel tunnel, he scoped in and smoothed out the spur and apologized to me for telling me the bone spur should not be causing me that much pain. So hang in there and don't let them wear you down. You know your body better than anyone else. Wishing you the best with your classes coming up, too. I understand your nervousness......I am not "school material" either........but I have a few more years on ya'. (Like probably a good 25 years )I have to look for a job, we are at an all time low and I have no formal education. High school grad. is as far as I went. I was a stay-at-home Mom. I use to be a licensed Manicurist, but I can't do that anymore because of my eyes. Before that, I use to wallpaper for others people and babysit. But those jobs were years ago and too far back for any employer to be interested in "past experience". So, all I'm good for is some damn grocery store or Wal-Mart minimum wage job. I don't even have any "recent" job experience to put on the application form for cryin' out loud.quote:I'm also up for them going in and fixing the bone spur I have in there (which they don't think it the problem, but I think is part of the problem).

Tried that. Doc said I wouldn't qualify. Rules have changed. Fibro doesn't count. Blepharospasm (considered blind, but we can see) doesn't count. Daily migraines, even though excruciating, doesn't count, hearing loss no longer counts due to the good ol' Equal Rights amendments and........the bowel issue......according to my Doc, disability will just tell me to go and have a colostomy done so I have some "control". And yet, the colon/rectal Doc says I don't qualify for that surgery yet because he doesn't think the muscle is "loose enough" to warrant that. Doc advised me to wear diapers and carry extra clothes. Oh, whoopee do hah! They have no idea how humiliating it is. How in the world do they expect me to work out in public and loose control of my bowels and act like it's nothing.quote:Can a Dr. write a statement on your behalf in regard to all of your physical challenges. Disability always rejects you the first time, you just have to appeal and keep pushing it.
You're welcome any time you wanna come. I need to learn more about hockey anyway, so now would be a good time. Hey.........want me to see if I can round up some Green Bay Gambler game tickets? You and I can have a girls night out and you can teach me hockey. I have a spare blow-up queen size air mattress you can sleep on so lodging is free.quote:Feisty, find a good disability lawyer as well. Some will work pro-bono or will have different rates. Check around. And if you need me to go to your DVR office with my goalie stick and stand there until they give you services you just say the word.
