man CONCERNED i love u dude man i just read yo post man im in pain rolling on the floor lmfao!!!
thats what i like someone thats real that will tell it how he sees it. We need more of that. i was on this other forum and dude i brought up work and i almost got banned. Some people on these forms can be very fake say they wont do this & that but in reality will do this & that. if i felt i can work a few hrs and thats it. Does that mean i dont deserve benefits. i just love that realness "concerned" its refreshing,,

The reality is that some of us have to work....albeit part time. Some of us fall into the donut hole of earning too much in SSDI....which leaves us sometimes worse off than those making many hundreds of dollars less per month in benefits.

Being a heart patient....if I can earn extra with little effort....I'll do it to reduce the stress.

Hey kud, Blackriver, and Jimmy,  Until next year, I do fall into the donut hole! Great point Blackriver!! My perscriptions r killing me rite now, but, now, after, just going through a successful cdr(SUCCESSFUL),I am currently sending in to see if I can get some of my scripts either discounted or free! My wife lost her job and I was on her insurance, but, now she had to find another job and I went on medicare part c and did not qualify for extra help, I probably will next year, SO, WORK WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST!!
      Blackriver, don't u play the guitar, A LITTLE? So, if Blackriver, plays his guitar a little, a few times a month, and gets paid a few dollars, it is not against ssdi regulations! Does it mean he can work at a full time job because he can play the guitar a little? Huh?
      When I was working 12 hours a week, last year, in an office building, my wife and me, who do u think did most of the work? Huh?
      She ran circles around me! We both got paid the same amount, but, she did most of the work by far! There were actually a few days, I sat down for almost the "WHOLE THREE HOURS"!! Other days, I actually did about 1/4th of the work for the 3 hours!! We got the same amount of money, but, it went into the same house!
       Now, anyone out there who would say, Ohhh!!, doesn't know what they r talking about, right Kud?......Concerned

i agree concerned u are right on buddy. I just feel the SSA knows what u get cant really survive so if u can work here and thier so what...working can be considered part of therapy.

Sure.....for these chats/discussions....we can say "guitar". Works for me. :-)

I'll use my "guitar" for as long as I am physically able to. And if I can make a little bank doing something I love to do.....that is totally aces in my book.

See, Jimmy, Topamax, is not a narcotic, so, why would u say something like that? See, I like to come on this site because I like to try to help people that r applying for benefits and it is sort of a way for a guy like me to socialize(in a way)!
     Now, U, Jimmy, r, supposedly applying for benefits, yet, I don't really see u asking for help with anything, I could be wrong! Where is the post that introduces yourself to everyone and asks for help? What is the name of that post and when did u post it? That is a question that I have for u?
     What I seemed to get from u was some ball-b#@%*%G about the little bit of work that I had done, trying to get me nervous about it! U don't know that I just went through a cdr with ssa hiding nothing!!
      Then when i mentioned treatment and a few wished me luck, u proceded twice to ask me what for! if I wanted to say, I would have, rite?
       Then, u wanted to know where I lived?? I am a friendly guy, but, u r trying to get my goat, Jimmy? If u must know, Jimmy, I have gallstones and have to go through treatment to eliminate them, ok, Pal!.....That's all for now, Jimmy...
Topamax does play with your mind its a side effect and the reason I say that is you are hooked on me being someone else that I am NOT! so if anyone is breaking anyones BaLL* its you breaking mine! This guy rayray really must of messed with you ! you seem very paranoid for some reason? and very defensive! but yet all you do is point the finger at me ? I seen you were from pa and I am from pa so I figured id ask where abouts you were nothing more ! and I said I wasn't hiding anything meaning your so hooked on this rayray guy that I wasn't hidden anything I am not him! why the hell would I try and make you nervous ? I don't even freaking know you! you have it in your head that I am rayray so that's why you think that! I don't even know what cdr is man! and I asked you what was wrong with you because I didn't freaking know what was wrong with you! I guess I could of just said good luck my bad but I figured id ask make sense?  And I did introduce myself maybe you can look? I didn't post a lot in my first post because it was more of an introduction , and I have posted in the form they are they mine are more of medical questions that justme did help me with maybe you can ask justme about that?  And just because I am not asking a bunch of questions doesn't mean I am not looking at responses! And as far as ssa goes I have a lawyer and they are doing most of the work at this point .
And correct me if I am wrong but you posted to one of my threads first I didn't even know you up to that point ! and after that you got it in your head to attack me because you think I am after you for some odd reason !
I wish you nothing the but the best ! sorry if asking questions bothers you! And I appreciate all the advice I get here Ok PAL

Ok. Jimmy, day, 4 on the topamax, things have calmed down a lot! The first three. my arms were shaking uncontrolalbly and I had a stomach ache, but, this morning, that seems to be almost totally gone! One thing though jim, it's not a narcotic, so, it shouldn't screw with my brain, but, maybe i got the wrong impression of u! I really don't want to let ssa know too much about who I am, although, they probably already know so it probably doesn't matter, still, If, I name the city that I live at, don't u think it would be like saying who I am, to them?
      Okay, Jimmy, so, I guess, u aren't Ray, it just seemed like u might be to me, ok? So, I think that on this post I have given out good if not great advice at times and I have also made big mistakes, so maybe I made a big mistake in your case here so!! Jim, I am Sorry! I am Sorry!
       Jimmy, in work, going back, I put in 25 years before I every even went on disability, going to doctors for at least 15 years before I ever even applied for disability, I had problems with co-worker, bosses, customers, etc., never in a physical way, although, people would get very scared of me!! Even, with my disabilities, my problems walking, the pain i get, etc. etc. My wife and my Dad have told me how intimiditating I can be to other people. Even to people that r like bigger than me or that others would classify as very tough, I would stand rite up to them! I never, got in a fight, but,I don't take anything off anyone like that! I know I really shouldn't be like that but that's the way I have been and it has hurt me. I don't mean to be like that but I can't help myself!! One thing, I do always go back and say I'm sorry! Sometimes it helps, sometimes not!
         Hope it helps in your case, Jimmy! Fact that we don't even see each other face to face could help maybe, I hope! U did seem like Ray to me because I talked to him a lot, but, I was wrong........Concerned

We do not make it a habit of posting who has been banned or why - most of the time, a banning is self-evident.

In the event a member who was banned tries to log back onto the board using an alias (many have tried), we 'usually' catch them quickly, but we do catch them.

its all good concerned ! water under the bridge !  and yes I see you helped people on here which is the reason I came on this site. at the moment I am working on getting health care which is very frustrating sooo much paper work ! my disability is in the hands of a lawyer I see people who did this all by themselves and say wow they are some smart people I would soooo lost it isn't funny , I get paper work in the mail and I panic ! and this is a crappy thing to go through for sure ! like most people on here I could make a more money working and have health insurance at the same time  that is a better option, but when you cant do it you have to do what you gotta do.. its like marriage for better or worse lol
 and I wouldn't worry about ssa spying on you.
and I also wonder  when they  put you back out to work what if you get hurt ? I think they really put people at risk

But anyways concerned I feel you with the gull stones I have them also it hasn't been to bad for me at this point in time but I am sure somewhere down the road I will have to deal with it , and I apologize also because I didn't see your post about it , I must admit I don't read everything and a many times I will just ask because its easier at the time to do . go figure
And hey don't change who you are its what makes you you  good or bad at least you always know where you stand right ?
But anyways thanks !

Hey, Bonzai, I got ur message about the banned thing, it won't happen again, I don't want to be next on the list so, Sorry about that.......

Hey Jimmy, SSA doesn't put anybody back to work, unless, I suppose, disability is taken away and a person has no choice because they have to live, okay? What did u think, they said to me, "We r keeping u on disability, but, u must go out and work five hours per week, in order to keep them!!"   Okay, Jimmy, fair enough!

I don't know how they do it that's why I was asking , I talk to someone who is on disability but from cananda and they made him go back to work and I wonder how they can do that ? I hear a lot about retraining and such they give a person disability and then retrain them and have them work again? or they give them some money and have them work a certain amount to make up the difference?
don't forget I am new here and I really don't know much about the process only a few things that I have read .

Hey, It's your friend, Concerned here, How, ya, doin? Okay, Jimmy, that is pretty good, how, u put what a person said in a box before u either make a comment or ask a question, pretty neat!! I have yet to learn how to do it!! I would think it would be kind of unnecessary if u r responding to a person that just made a comment and ur comment will be directly below, it a little repeatious, don't ya think?
       I think I have a good answerto the question, u just asked above! My answer is: go to
   www.ssa.goc/pubs/EN-05-100095.pdf

      One thing though Jimmy, if u r trying for disability, meaning, rite now, u can't work at all, then u r way ahead of yourself here!! First, worry about getting on disability before u even think about if u may be able to test the waters or able to work a few hours a week. U need to be either diagnosed to be disabled or at least 12 months continous or result in death!
      I had also asked in a previous post, what type diabetes u had and how long u had it as it is now longer listed in the blue book under conditions of the listings. I was wondering if maybe u could be grandfathered in because u had it for so long?........Concerned

The disability that they receive in Canada is not the same as SSDI received through the United States Social Security Admininstration.
Nerve damage in upper and lower extremities. Degenerative Disc Disease, RA.

hey concerned when your reading these form and want to put the comment in look to the right and you will see quote  click on that and it will open a new window scroll through the message and where you see quote at the end of the reply click next to that and type your comment in.
the thing I learned here is watch which quote you click on because it may be your quote , you will see try it a few times and you will get it , and most web sites use these quote things and they all work the same ..
that link you sent didn't work   Sorry, We could not find www.ssa.goc
and yes concerned I have been out of work for 7 months now and it doesn't look like anything is getting better
I have been diabetic for years now and when they get into my medical records they should see all the diabetic problems I have had due to diabetes and it just keeps getting worse for me ..
