Your thoughts on SSD

I am a nine year survivor of NPC. I have been on SSD but now they feel I am phyically and emotionally able to work. I have no saliva and talking, eating and normal living is problematic. I have had late side effects of trismus in my neck and arthritis to top it off. I have had infections in my face due to adcesses. I would like to know your thoughts and if anyone has a suggestion on what kind of work I could do with my modalities. I will lose my medical insurance and that is what scares me the most. Thank you all for letting me rant. Any suggestions are welcome.

Paula,

It might help us to know what kind of work you did before you got sick.

I am also 9 year out, but of throat cancer.  I was 59 when diagnosed, so am now retired.

How is your stamina?  Do you have enough work quarters to go on SSDI?

Susan
