It does seem to be very easy to get in some states. I remember that when I lived in California, I was always running into perfectly healthy-looking, active people on SSDI or SSI who boasted about how they had gotten it. One woman told me that she merely said that working gave her migraines. I kid you not.
You don’t have to convince me.
There is so much of that in PR that I have to believe that somebody is simply rubber stamping applications.
Well liberal idiots give me migraines...can I get SSI?
There was a young, overweight man on Hoarders who lived on a disability check. He didn’t look or act disabled, nor did he fit the profile of a real hoarder, just lazy. For instance, his apartment was littered with pizza boxes and fast food wrappers. He had dirty clothes everywhere. His bathroom was filthy, like he had an ‘accident’ and didn’t clean up. Just filthy, piles of actual trash, not junky stuff. He was more than willing to let the Hoarder crew clean up his place.
