I have not worked for 17 months now due to my back. After being turned down for disability twice I am waiting for a hearing. I called last week and the state is two years behind for hearings. How is a family of five suppose to survive on one income for almost 4 years?? After my mri last week my doctors say that disability should be a no brainer , especially with fusion on both sides of my lower back and bones rubbing together. My wife works her ass off to keep our family together. If not for her, our kids would be in foster care, and we would be homeless. We cannot survive much longer. Our 401ks are gone, and there is no money tree left to squeeze.. It is not uncommon to have very little food, or have our phones or internet or lights shut off. The food pantry has helped, and our church, and foodshare ect... After u exhaust all those outlets, where do u turn? Waiting for disability might just tear my family apart, and have us homeless... I am very frustrated and don't get it!
