Physical conditions more of a barrier to job than mental illness

A recent study completed at Rutgers University shows just how urgent the need is for integrated physical health and mental health care for those who suffered from chronic mental illness conditions.

The long process of disability approval

An illness or injury that prevents you from going to work can be stressful in several ways. Not only are you dealing with the suffering of the illness or injury, but you may also have expensive medical treatments or prescriptions to afford, which may be difficult if you are missing work and not getting paid. However, if your medical condition promises to prevent you from working for a long time, you may turn to the Social Security Administration for disability benefits.

Neck injuries can affect your ability to work

Neck injuries and resulting neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors including work accidents, sports injuries, car accidents and improper lifting. Individuals can also injure their necks by sitting at a computer for an extended period, falling or by diving into the water.

You may qualify for disability benefits if you have lupus

Lupus is a very debilitating, chronic illness. The symptoms associated with lupus generally get worse over time. You may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits if you've been diagnosed with this condition and your health has deteriorated to the point that you can no longer work.
