    What did you mean by that?



    You do not know that. Again, you have a limited understanding of disability, you are not a professional, and you have no access to their medical records.
    Do you have trouble reading? if so you should sign up, you are already repeating yourself, that could be a speech impediment.

    I know more than a few who have done it and they asked why don't I do it ? It's free money.

    How many Americans have filed disability claims since Obama has become POTUS ?
    Same with fibromyalgia, no way to prove or disprove it, but it will get you on disability fast

    Just as I thought. That's an offensive remark.

    Your disdain for the disabled, including myself, is noted.

    How so, did you not repeat yourself? Playing a poor victim should help your claim if you decide to sign up

    Depends. Something like mowing the lawn only lays me up barely able to move for 3 days or so. But then, I use a riding lawn mower, no way could I push mow over an acre. What I am capable of doing is often determined by how much pain and fatigue I am willing to tolerate or able to tolerate when I have done it.

    Mowing the lawn-- 2 to 3 days of pain and fatique
    resetting fence posts and putting in concrete for them, max 3 post per day--3 to 5 days recovery
    Going to a mall, Walmart or anyplace with fluorescent lighting for as little as 15 to 30 min-- 1-3 days extreme headaches, dizziness, nausea, pain and fatique
    Laying under a car to do repairs for an hour-- 1 to 2 days of nausea and dizziness.
    Driving at night for too long, say 20-30 min-- 1 to 2 days of headaches, dizziness, nausea
    Work at my computer for more than around 30 min at a time-- again 1-2 days (this is why I often appear to disappear sometimes during conversations and am slow to reply and of course, some just move to fast so I never actually get back into them)

    Just a few examples. Sure, If I am willing to pay the price, I can do a lot of things, for a little while. Could I hold any type of job, none that I have found so far.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    This is what ableism looks like folks. Yes, I am disabled. Your hateful remarks about us are noted.
