I am Deaf since birth and no I do not see myself as a disabled. I do not have a job (I have been looking for one and applied over 1,000 different jobs within 10 years and no one hired me). No use of SSD, no SSDI, no unemployment checks, none of any assistandce is needed or wanted. What would happen to me? Living on the street. Is that what you would want to expect of me? So you HEARIES give me and Deafies no other choice who is in my shoes..but SSD or SSDI is only thing we are depending to survive. If you assume me being lazy and potato couch as where in reality of myself holding a Bachelor's Degree and have had applied tons of jobs with no success of being hired then **** YOU!
