I need to find a workers comp doctor, as I need to have my hands re-checked. I have an ongoing w/c case. I am considering requesting partial disability, but the whole idea scares me. It seems so permanent, and admits I have a disability. (ya think?? sigh) I think disability for the problems with my hands might be more realistic to achieve than disability for my fibro related problems. However, the two problems aggravate each other. I have discovered recently that I really cannot work full time, as a busy 6 hour shift exhausts me, and wears out my hands, too. I can only imagine what an 8 hour shift would do to me. So. My questions: --- Does anyone here have experience with disability through workers comp? --- How does it work? I still want to work, certainly can work part time. How do they determine how much payment I would get, and how much I am allowed to work? I don't want to be limited except by my own physical needs, but still need to be able to pay my bills. Thanks in advance, if anyone has any answers or discussion for me. Peace, Beth.
