Ok I am a person who gets disability for a mental illness I have. I have schizoaffective disorder because my father was shizophrenic. I am drug free and I'm not an alcoholic, I pay my bills and take care of my daughter by myself. And people constantly push it in my face with " oh you have it easy" or "not many people have it as easy as you" really? I mean financially I have it easy yes but mentally, emotionally, and physically I don't! Not only do I have schizoaffective disorder but I have PTSD and depression. I can't stand it when people think my life is just a breeze when it's not! I am the small percentage of people who do what I'm supposed to do with my disability money. I hate drugs and maybe once in awhile I'll treat myself to a drink with my best friend! I'm tired of being looked down upon and it's also affected my love life too. Men look at me as if I'm begging them to take care of me when all I want from aman really is love and loyalty. That's it!!!

I know 4 people on disability and all 4 are faking it to avoid working. 2 of them told me directly. I'm sure there are people who need it but the fakers are giving you a bad name.5

Because so many people abuse the system the few that actually need it are looked down upon, sad but true...3
