WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME? 1. My pain - My pain is not your pain. It is not caused by inflammation. Taking your arthritis medication will not help me. I can not work my pain out or shake it off. It is not even a pain that stays put. Today it is in my shoulder, but tomorrow it may be in my foot or gone. My pain is believed to be caused by improper signals sent to the brain, possibly due to sleep disorders. It is not well understood, but it is real.

NEW PHILADELPHIA — As part of National Safety Month, the Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation is offering several tips for staying safe on the job.

    OHIO-images

According to the BWC, more than 60 percent of last year's lost-time injury claims were the result of slips, trips, falls or overexertion, all preventable causes. "Preventing the most common injuries can be as simple as maintaining good housekeeping practices, using slip-resistant shoes, eliminating lifting tasks and training employees on proper lifting techniques," BWC administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer said in a news release. "Attentive employers can make a few minor changes at minimal cost that can significantly increase safety in the workplace and provide the added benefits of healthy, productive workers and lower workers' compensation premiums."

Invisible Disabilities: Not all injury, illness, chronic pain, and disabilities are visible! You may have psychological or unseen physical scars that start after the initial injury or illness and last long after medical treatment and or any litigation is over. Problems like this can affect many workers relationships with the people they interact with and love, and will determine how well they readjust to life. These problems can also lead to other complications or can even be fatal. Unfortunately, many workers are not aware that they have these problems, and others fail to seek treatment because they fear being labeled as weak or as losing their status in life.

Mental Health Disorders:

* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) * Depression * Substance Abuse

Get help for yourself!

* Talk with family and friends * Suicide Prevention Hotline Link & Phone Number * 800-273-8255 (TALK)

 

Pain Syndromes:

CFS, ME, RSD/CRPS, Fibromyalgia, CPS, MPS are some examples!
Pain syndromes are another disability that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be just as damaging as any other. These kinds of disabilities are extremely concerning because not only are they difficult to diagnose, they are just as difficult to treat because of the vast scale of the body they cover. This can also lead to the patient getting frustrated and loosing his/her self esteem and believing that no one can help. This is false? You must stay focused, be resilient, and most of all be patient.

NAIDW recognizes the importance of working with the right businesses and professionals to maximize our efforts in promoting information, resources, and advocacy for injured & disabled workers and their families.

People with disabilities, injured workers, advocates, friends, family, organizations, businesses, and more must work together in order to realize access and equality for all injured & disabled workers and their families.

Individuals suffering from mood and anxiety disorders such as bipolar, panic disorder and major depressive disorder may be more likely to abuse opioids, according to a new study led by researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. They found that mood and anxiety disorders are highly associated with non-medical prescription opioid use. The results are featured in a recent issue of the Journal of Psychological Medicine.

The Social Security disability system began in 1957 as a way to help people too sick to work. By 2009 more than 9.6 million Americans were counted as disabled. Rates of disability in rural America are 80 percent higher than in the cities.

More than one out of four working age adults (15 to 64) in Buchanan County, Virginia, was receiving disability payments from Social Security in 2009.
