This is how Dr. Timberlake make a judgement call if you have a back problem and a college degree then you are not disabled. Without a college degree then you are disabled.

Dr. Timberlake said he has listened to a story about back pain means they can no longer work or a shoulder injury cause them to be out of a job over and over again. Then he would ask them can you get a job that does not require lifting things on a job where you do not have to use your shoulder and sit down to work? After Dr. Timberlake said his patients would look at him like he was asking them to consider becoming an astronaut.

Dr. Timberlake met a woman name Ethel Thomas who is on Social Security Disability for back pain caused by after working many years at a fish plant then working as a nurse’s aide. Then he asked her what is your dream job, and she responded working at the Social Security Office to weed out the cheaters through the disability applications process. But that was not the case because she wanted the job because it is the only job that would allow her to sit all day.

Dr. Timberlake found it hard to believe, but then he started looking around the town and there was a fish plant, truck repair shop, and three McDonald’s. Dr. Timberlake looked at a list of job openings for three McDonald’s, KFC, Registered Nurse, Occupational Therapist, and Truck Driver (heavy lifting) in Hale County, Alabama.

Dr. Timberlake, personally he thinks it may be impossible for Ethel to get a job that would accommodate her back pain.

Here is a story people hear about all the time these days that does not have anything to do with a disability is Local Mill Shuts Down or a Factory closed.

in Hale County, Alabam who told him their back pain keep them up at night which made it hard for them to stand up on the job.  The women informed him they really cried to try to work and one woman said it was too painful to go to work every day

Chana Joffe-Walt said it does not appear the woman was faking the pain, but it is confusing.  For example, Chana Joffe-Walt suffer from back pain and his editor suffer from a herniated disc but he works harder than anyone else.  On the other hand, perhaps millions of people who suffer from asthma and diabetes who work every day.  Who decide if you have back pain then that makes you disabled?

All the federal government is concerned about is if you are disabled with a medical condition makes it impossible for you to work.  The judgment call are made in doctors’ offices and courtrooms around the county.  Many health problems are mental illness and back pain are the fastest growing and causes off disability.

There was one guy in Hale County, Alabama every story were about becoming disabled: Dr. Perry Timberlake, Chana Joffe-Walt started thinking the reason why so many people in Hale County are on Social Security Disability.  Chana Joffe-Walt thinks there is some kind of disability scam, referring tons of people in the Social Security Disability program.

Chana Joffe-Walt was sitting in the clinic waiting room several mornings in a row, and that’s when he met Dr. Timberlake and discover there is nothing wrong about him.  Dr. Timberlake is practicing in a very poor place and people come into his office and complained about their pain.

Now that we have talk about pain and what it is like, Dr. Timberlake always ask his patients what grade did they finished?  Dr. Timberlake said asking patients what grade did they finish is not a medically questions to ask.  However, Dr. Timberlake said the education questions is very important information in disability cases because people who only have a high school education most likely cannot get a sit-down job.
