Anyone here go on disability? And how?


I need advice. I got a temp job which was my first job in over 2 years (while I was in school). I was diagnosed with Celiac 4 years ago and still fighting with so much: fatigue, brain fog, memory, etc. No I’m not getting gluten. My TTG-IGA level is a 1 and I’ve been tested for most everything under the moon. I bring all this up because every time I ask this question someone tries to solve instead of answering. I wound up losing my contract with this company. It was very difficult, but I showed every day. I struggled to meet goals that should be simple. I was super sensitive with feedback because I know I’m better than what they said. I only had that job 3 months. So I’m starting to think disability is the better choice. Anyone here go on disability? And how? My state is super tough.

  1. I can only speak from my experience as a health care provider (in the state of Washington). It is VERY difficult to get on permanent disability. Many of my patients that I thought would qualify didn’t. And we have a screaming liberal state, so I would think ours would be more lenient than others? The ones that did qualify barely can survive on it ( although we do live in the most expensive area of the state). So in my experience, not a great option

  2. In Ohio there are attorneys that offer help for people denied disability benefits. I see their commercials all the time. I know it’s hard to get approved unless you have specific diseases but I don’t think Celiac is on that list. If you think it’s the best option then apply and see what happens. You will likely have to fight for it. Best wishes to you and good luck. ?

  3. Find a new doctor or try and figure out what’s wrong because that’s the most important. It could be something outside of celiac. There will always be temp jobs and there are always other temp agencies. If you can figure out what’s wrong and get better there will always be temp jobs.

  4. Have you tried therapy? It is rare to get disability for celiac. It is an autoimmune condition that is almost always treatable with a 100% gluten free diet. You might have depression from the years of being undiagnosed.

  5. I’ve tried numerous doctors, medications for anxiety and depression and counseling. I’m literally at the end of my rope.

  6. Sjogrens Syndrome can also present with these same symptoms. May be something to look into. I suffer from it, do not have celiac, or at least not diagnosed with it at this time, and suffer from all those same symptoms.

  7. There are many things that classify to get disability.

  8. Have you had your thyroid checked?
