Concerned in Maryland
#11
If its sedentary you can still stand if you need to from time to time. You get breaks and lunch.. Plus walking to restroom/get water etc.

Maybe start at a part time job and see how that goes?
I live in CA, it's not always sunny... And the Workers Comp sucks! Smile

Ok, next concern I have filed for Social Security Disability, If I take the vocational rehab will that effect the disability determination? I know I can't work but the only way I could get any checks started till SSD came in was to try the voc rehab. My thoughts are to try and maintain voc rehab and a steady check till SSD kicked in then drop it and settle my claim with workers compensation. I'm pretty sure my SSD will be approved by my multiple surgeries I still have a 13mm herniation and moderate to marked spinal stenosis, plus my age 55. Any thoughts on that?

SSDI requires you to be disabled from all work.
if you can work, or are working, you would not qualify.

I understand that but at this time I have no choice but to go to vocational rehab. so that I have a check coming in and voc. rehab. is not working. Also SSDI has a period that your allowed to try and work I believe its 9 mths.

Backagain don't give up.

The pain right now is miserable and its all you can think about. (I am just starting pain management myself so I understand).

You may not be able to work now but who knows what can happen in a few months?

My friend is on the right amount of meds for her back condition and she is working again. (a different job)

It was a slow process but once she got back to work she found a sense of purpose in her life again and she has a great attitude again
