Bob has been approved for disability. Something in me wanted him to NOT be approved. As if the Social Security Administration’s determination would actually declare him NOT DISABLED, and therefore he’d just have to be …NOT disabled.
Unfortunately, Bob’s cognitive testing has shown a deficit worthy of a neuro-psychologist’s intervention, and worthy of the designation of temporarily disabled. He’ll start neuro rehab, work with the neurology team and get to an optimal state of cognitive ability. Hopefully that state of cognitive ability will be one in which he can feel like himself again, and not feel — well…disabled.
He was temporarily disabled 10 years ago, received disability benefits, then recovered enough to discontinue the disability. So, I want that outcome again.
Funny…some people actually want to be disabled. I hate this.
