    It's a good thing that my hubby has a good job and good insurance. I could never apply for SSDI, because Texas schools don't pay into Social Security.
    I really wish that they did - then I at least would have that option.

    You can get the stuff together I guess but you have to be physically out of a job to actually apply. They will start the paperwork then but they don't count you being disabled until you have been out of work for 6 months so when they back date they do it to 6 months of no work. It really sucks!

    Yes, this does suck! This makes sure that an already sick person suffers with no health care for a long time and is driven into poverty just to "prove" that they are truly disabled.
    I know we can't get political here, but just what does this say about the US system of healthcare?
