Hi my name is Aaron and im 29 years old.I found out at 21 when I hurt my self working for temp servive at some wearhouse. That I had Primary [since birth] Spinal Stinosis with a bulging disc with nerve damage. My leg spasams are intince at best in my left leg ofc. Any turn sit pick up dip movment of any kind,is possible to ly me up in bed I am carefull and stoped my active life so yung.Now over wight,angry,mentaly unsure of my abilitys as a laborer. Well thats a joke I just cant do it anymore laborer I gave that up...i turnd to selling drungs for awhile but failed at that . Now a criminal record follows me around so jobs even harder. Im at the end of my rope .Never sell agin no way!!! I am back at my mothers becuse no job no hope no future but pain. At 21 life shatterd,been trying to make money need it to live you know. My mother will take me back only so meny times and I dont want to be here im freakin 29 years old.My minds on a mental lapse. I need help but from a poor and uneducated family answers are just not there.

Hey Aaron,

I would go for the disability. Get an attorney first. Its making things much easier. I now have my 1st denial, he's taking over. it helps too that he has back problems like I do L4&L5 disks,so he totally understands what i am going through & cares.
Ironic or God's Will....... i like to think it was God at work there,.


It wont hurt anything to apply. Apply for medicaid first so you have medical assistance.
