- Ontario, Canada
Well I have I'll for 17 years now and more issues have been piling up. I have major depression, spondyloarthritis, polymyalgia, crushed disk in back along with the crohns disease. I have been off work for almost 5 monhs now and I am still very ill and with all my pain I cannot work. Both my family doctor and my specialist say I can not return to work. Trouble is my unemployment insurance has now run out. I applied for CPP disability and today was just denied as she said there was not enough to show I would be sick for the next year. I was told they almost always decline on the first try to see if people give up. I now have to appeal and put myself in alot of debt to do so. My doctors are trying to get me on remicade but it is a long process. I have been sick like I said 17 years, three surgeries and all my joint issues. Has anyone else get denied on the first try. I can't stand long or sit long, and I eat once every 24-30 hours and only in my own house. I swell up out of control if I eat and then I vomit and run to he washroom 20plus times. I am so upset. I can't keep going on like this.
