Not giving up NEW
by: Anonymous

A disabled person starts feeling useless after a certain period of time. You can’t completely give up on ever getting your life back and feeling like your life matters. For someone to make cruel comments like someone has a choice to be disabled is a cruel and cold hearted individual. Some ppl are born with their illness and nobody wants to be limited in life or feel like they are being cheated. I applaud anyone who is fighting for their life and not giving up! Some ppl aren’t affected by their illness everyday or can’t perform certain tasks but aren’t totally helpless. Be mindful of others feelings bc you don’t know what your future holds. Good luck everyone who wants more for their future.

Disable NEW
by: Nancy G

I can’t believe that some people are so rude and insensitive to persons that are disabled. Judge and jury really don’t talk unless you’ve been in someone’s shoes. Let’s clarify the disable some are on SSI which means they collect a check from the government because they have no work earnings. Know SSA means that they have worked and are able to pull money from their time of worked. When it comes to applying for disability you have to be disabled. There is no 3/4, 1/ 2, either you are or you ain’t. Simple as that. This is how the government works. For you IInformation. So when a disable ask can they still work a job maybe it’s because they still want to be useful. Who knows but for people to be so cruel makes me ill. I am disabled and I work part-time. So think before you speak on someone else. Knowledge is power and being dumb is just that.

Get your facts NEW
by: Anonymous

Before you start passing judgement ask questions, it is so unfair of you to tell this person to get off their deadbeat freeloading ass, until you are in that persons shoes or now all the facts keep your mouth shut, if you are on disibility you are able to work a certain number of hours a week, for those of us that are disability it is very hard. When I was told at the age of 37 I lost my self worth felt worthless that was one of the hardest days of my life and if it where not for my husband helping me through this time I don't know what I would have done.......this is a very cruel world and people need to have a little more compassion for one another, keep your rude comments to your self

Do it NEW
by: Anonymous

Holy crap dude chill. He's probably got a disability that makes it to where he can't stand long enough to get a job, but driving is fine. Trucking might be one of those few jobs he's able to do. He might be collecting disability now, but once he starts working again that goes away. He isn't sitting on his ass freeloading if he's looking for a job.

if you are on disability it means you are not physicaly or mentaly able to work.thats why you sit at home and get a check from the goverment every month.if you are wanting to drive a truck you know you are not truely disabled and need to get off your dead freeloading ass and off disability and let someone who is really disabled draw that disability money. thats what is wrong with the system to many slacking fakers like you drawing it and then still wanting a job. dead beat ,slacking , faker.
