Meanwhile, I’m a VA serice-connected disabled veteran with hbp, heart disease, edema (can barely walk), diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, deafness, bone spurs, sleep apnea, ED, etc, etc. Guess how many times I’ve been turned down by Soc. Sec. because I’m not disabled?

Jobs ... became a billionaire while maintaining his personal and professional integrity.

Well, he worked hard and became a billionaire.

Let's just leave it at that, shall we?

The author is wrong and right. Stress is subjective. True. There are no standard tests that can validate a person’s claim, or at least ones that are being used this way. We go by what people say. This leaves the door open to fraud.

He is wrong that stress is never a disability. It certainly can be. It can lead to mental break downs and physical health problems. So his example of Steve Jobs is ironic. Stress could very well be what killed him since stress definitely lowers your immunity and ability of your body to fight illness.
