I could not get disability for the adhesions and the resulting limitations and pain. though I am indeed now ON disability.

They kept putting in my medical records that I had 'psychiatric problems'.. that I was having panic attacks and that's why I can't breath.

well you know what? the doctors keep giving us different diagnoses like these and think we are just head cases so I finally decided to use their inactivity and lack of belief to my benefit.

I am now receiving disability and have for 6 or 7 years now. says I receive it due to psychiatric issues. fine whatever. I know what the real problem is even if they don't.. and "I" know why I have difficulty working or even getting out of bed. the stated reason may be inaccurate, but the being disabled part is not.

maybe all the lousy doctors we have all seen and all the mis-diagnoses we've

all received over the years can have their own benefits indeed.
