Judge Judy

I was watching Judge Judy yesterday (yes, I love that crazy old bat). There was a...umm..whatchamacallit.....uh...the person who brings up frivilous lawsuits....what are they called? I'm totally going blank here.

But anyway, she was telling Judge Judy how she worked on and off because of disability. Here's the basic convo (not word for word - I took a little creative license)...

Judge Judy: Why are you on disability?

Lady: I have a medical condition called...(wait for it.....wait.....)...endometriosis.

Judy: How do you support yourself?

Lady: I collect disability and have (been totally scamming the system) for the past two years for this condition. I haven't worked the last three months because of it.

Judge Judy obviously knows nothing about endometriosis because she doesn't rip this lady a new asshole.

I have never heard of anyone getting disability for this condition...even if their insides are falling out and dragging on the ground bleeding (how's that for a visual). Never. My husband with a bad heart and ejection fraction of 10% (borderline transplant list) got turned down for disability...twice. Yet Ms Endometriosis got it....please shoot me now.

I've missed a few days of work from it each month (even with lortab and max motrin), but never have missed so much to be considered disabled from it and unable to work. I also have suspected adenomyosis.

I can't believe your husband was turned down. Oh wait yes I can. My sister gets 100% disabled SS and 100% VA for being crazy. She can party all night but can't say would you like fries with that?

Sorry to hear about your uterine woes - I know that things like that can be miserable!
