I can definitely relate to the frustration and aggravation felt in regards to the post by benzeknees – “A Professional Patient Rants“.

The sad thing is that people who do not have to go through such things often have very little (if any) understanding of the frustration and time involved in getting approved for benefits. There seems to be the (mis)conception that those who are handicapped do nothing but stare at the wall all day and have nothing, but stare at the walls. And then there is the lack of understanding of what might Physically be involved in getting places to get the benefit approval process going, or what might come up once you actually arrive…

Can you say “head….brick-wall”. There are times I think a padded room might be appropriate, but perhaps I shouldn’t say that 😛
