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.
