    socially yeah. but it’s really hard to get disability benefits bc of my age so i honestly haven’t bothered to.

        not during interviews, no. my fear is that they will not hire me because mine is really debilitating. i know it’s illegal for them to not hire me bc of that but i just don’t risk it. I usually just tell them after i get hired.

    Sorry you feel that way, but I completely understand. I'm in a flare atm and to be honest I wouldn't hire me with my track record. What do you work as atm if you don't mind me asking?
