What should I do /adv/?
>take shitty pizza delivery job
>turns out its shit
>take my money and live at home for 2 months or so, try looking for another job
>suddenly get carpal tunnel out of nowhere
>doctor is just letting my hands waste away
>family doesn't do anything but scream "GET A JOB"
what should I do, am I just fucked? Can I get any disability benefits?
it was shit, the people who worked there were shit backstabbing motherfuckers, my back couldn't take riding around in the car for that long everyday. I'm looking to become a security guard but I've gotten into a deep depression lately that's made it hard to do anything. My mom says I can sign up for summer semester which would be nice, I really want to become a full time student for a while.
So become a full time student? I don't understand, you know what you want to do, so fucking do it? Also you sound like way too much of a pansy to be a security guard. No wonder your parents want you to do something and stop leeching off them
OK, one, stop crying. No one really cares THAT much, but some of us are willing to listen.
Two, you're not telling the whole story. Not a lot of this makes sense. A doctor isn't going to be "just letting my hands waste away" for no reason. His decisions might not match your desire, but what was his rationale? Doctors are specifically charged NOT to sit idly by and allow ill people to suffer. Hippocratic Oath and all, and apathy towards the ill is considered 'harm,' which they are forbidden to do.
So, something smells there. Maybe he or she didn't want to give you the medication you were seeking? Just a thought.
Two, I've got carpal tunnel. And arthritis, and nerve damage from some partially severed fingers when I was a kid, as well. I'm typing now, using a wrist band and a supportive pad. I work with my hands, all damn day, along with typing, picking my nose and writing. The pain is very manageable, but not convenient.
You've hopefully put down your clutching pearls and your hugging pillow now, so I'm also going to point out that you haven't said One. Single. Thing. about what you're trying to do to improve your health or address the problem.
Is it possible that your family and your doctor are not wrong in being less concerned about this than you are?
Well, now that you've gotten the bitter pill here, here's my suggestion: Go back to your doctor, tell him that the pain isn't getting better, and ask for physical therapy or any non-chemical means of making things better.
I wanted to be a doctor when I was young. My hands getting squished made that unlikely. I got over it. They've always been a hindrance, but what can you do? It's better than fucking being blind.
Don't expect sympathy for your problems, you're not a little girl. You can reasonably expect commiseration, and maybe empathy if you're not an asshole to your loved ones, but that's about it.
Your family IS correct, OP. You need a fucking job. Suck it up a bit.
