Alabama Disability Attorney Social Security Disability

Alabama Disability Attorney Social Security Disability: Earlier today I was reading an article about people who suffer with disabilities, and this clause struck a chord with me: "People with disabilities are often forced to pretend to meet stereotypes in order to get their very real needs met."

The article explained how those who suffer from disabilities feel pressure to act in a certain way, so others won't suspect that they are cheating the system and are really entitled to Social Security disability benefits. They fear what others might think of them.

Suffering with a disability is tough enough; those who are disabled do not need to be made to feel like they are "takers" or "fakers."

In Alabama, most of us were taught to "judge not, lest [we] be judged." Unfortunately, many people seem to forget that when they see someone with a disabled parking decal, but when they can't easily discern what the person's disability is, they jump to the conclusion that the person is lying. I know how easy it is to make such an assumption, because to my shame I have done so myself.

Being disabled is not against the law, even though the U.S. Congress is doing their best to make those citizens who are drawing Social Security Disability benefits feel that way. Many times the disabled person is already suffering with depression and feelings of self worthlessness because they really want to work and they feel guilty because they cannot. We as society don't need to make things worse.

If you have disabled and you have questions about your right to Social Security Disability benefits, don't hesitate to contact and talk to one of the experienced Alabama Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
