OK, on today's rerun of NYPD Blue, there was a character who stabbed himself and said it was a robbery so he could get disability cause he had Degenerative Disc Disease in his spine and his insurance didn't cover it! This marks the first time I've heard what I have referenced on TV. You would think, since it is so common (SSDI says it is the one impairment they see listed on the disability forms more than any other)that you'd hear more about it, maybe more famous people that have it, etc. That is part of the reason I started this blog, cause I feel alone in having it, and when I tell people what it is, no one seems to have heard it.
