I understand that there are many many people who abuse the system for their own gain.

I am 50 years old. I have worked since I was 16, much of the time two and three jobs at a time as I was a single parent. In December of 2009 I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure, 24 blood clots in various parts of my body, and a severely enlarged heart, after collapsing. This disease is the result of having Rhematic Fever as a child.

Last month I finally applied for disability. I can no longer function as a proper employee in my condition. I ***DID*** pay in for 30+ years, even if I am having to get it back about 12 years earlier than anticipated.

While I have been attempting to recover, I have had to use food stamps. I despise going to the grocery store because of people like the OP, who ASSUME I am trying to take advantage of the system. Please tell me how anyone could simply look at me and tell that I have severe heart disease? They see my perpetually swollen body (from the Congestive Heart Failure) and assume I just over eat, and I'm too fat and lazy to work.

OP - while I can appreicate your hard work, and toward the abusers and cheats, I can not appreciate your attitude toward the system in general. There are those of us who need the help sincerly, and there ARE those of us who paid in our share too.

I lost my older brother to heart failure at the young age of 36. he too was on disability. people would look at him and think he was faking it because he looked young and strong on the outside. he didn't start swelling up until the last year of his life.

It's for people like you and him that the system was designed for.

Sorry to hear about your health, I wish the best for you. hf
