Free Case Evaluation

Written by

Injury, illness, pain and disability cases can often pit the interests of an injured or disabled worker against the interests of an employer and insurer. For this reason, the workers compensation, injury and disability claims process can be adversarial and difficult and will often necessitate the use of an attorney who is experienced with regards to your specific claims.

Wrenching Decisions

Written by

 

tough-decisions

My co-worker lay in a hospital bed, probably dying. He collapsed in a heap the other day while at his desk. I’ve known and worked with this kind, gentle man for ten years, and his sense of humor was wry and hilarious. He always lifted my spirit and made a bad day tolerable. 

He has so many medical problems it could fill a notebook. He took the bullet and came bouncing back every single time. You’d see him gone for months or weeks at a time than he’d be back at it. I asked him why he didn’t go on disability because he certainly would qualify but that man worked through his personal physical HELL to get his daughters through college. He was unselfish to a fault.

 

Toni BernhardThe latest celebrity Buddhist, Mick Jagger, can't get it. Neither, it appears, can I. It seems that to be satisfied, I'd have to arrange my life and the world to conform totally to my liking—and then have them stay that way:

  • I will cease being sick and immediately travel to the ocean to body surf;
  • My two grown children and their families will move in next door—one family on each side will do;
  • The daytime temperature outside will range from 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit—always;
  • Politicians on both side of the aisle will come to share my views;
  • I will never be cranky again.

NAIDW Finance Guide

Written by

PictureIt’s Friday evening, and you’ve just come home from work either with a pink slip or too much pain to go back on Monday. You’re in full panic mode; how do I support my family, pay my mortgage, buy groceries? Most likely you will emotionally shut down and all the forces of nature will attack you all at once. Your pain level rises, you’ll strike out at those around you and your feet won’t be able to move.

Toni BernhardIn my last piece, 5 Techniques to Help with Physical Pain, I described five exercises to help ease bodily pain. The response to that piece was so positive that I thought I'd follow-up by describing one of the mainstays of mindfulness-based techniques for helping with chronic pain and illness: the body scan. (The body scan has its origins in one of the manymindfulness meditation techniques taught by the Buddha.)

Work Injury Claim form Rejected!Pain can prove costly for individuals already dealing with financial woes and problems at home, a new study has found.

According to research published in the August issue of Spine (2011;26:1402-1409), blacks, the working poor and people younger than 35 years old are more likely to suffer from financial problems and domestic issues after settling workers’ compensation claims for painful, on-the-job back injuries.

Toni BernhardWhen someone asks me how I'm doing, I've got my glass-half-full and my glass-half-empty answers. My glass-half-full answer is that I'm now able to be up and about for several hours in the morning and then—usually—again in the afternoon.

Five Minutes of Mindfulness Magic

Written by

Tony BernhardI once read that the most common movie line is, "Let's get outta here." That describes exactly how I felt a few weeks ago as I sat in the lounge chair in my backyard. I was suddenly overcome with restlessness. But I didn't have the option to "get outta here." As most readers know, I'm mostly housebound due to chronic illness.

If You Could Walk In My Shoes

Written by
WORN SHOES

If you could walk in my shoes, You would see, I paid my dues, I worked hard my whole life through, Even though, I no longer do.  

You would see how hard I tried. You would see how hard I cried. Can't you see my condition is real, Even though you can't see what I feel.   Your support could lift me up. That would be amazing luck. My disability; you can't see, But I need you to believe in me.  

Trust me when I say, A friend could make my day. Please lend a helping hand, With your support, I can stand. A little goes along way. A good friend won't turn away. A little kind word can lift my soul. A little kind word can make me whole.

Chronic pain: The silent epidemic explained

Written by

Back PainBy: Monami K. Thakur

 
Across the globe, chronic pain is a silent epidemic that affects millions every year, occurring as a result of disorders, disease or accidents.
Due to the complexity of the nature of this form of pain, researchers have often tried to decipher the social, medical and economic impacts on human life. As such, the medical approach for treating chronic pain is multidimensional - taking into account both the physical and psychological impacts of the pain. For understanding the paradigms of chronic pain, it is vital to know certain factors like risk groups, causes, treatment options and prognosis. Here's a 360 degree view on the condition to help you deal with it in a better manner.
