i have real bad arthritis and i have worked doing masonry and construction for almost 19 years and now it is real hard for me to get up and do my job and i have to figure something else out to do. i looked at going to school or something but i havent been to school since high school and i dont think i will be able to do it. i am in my 40s and i want to be able to provide for my family but i know that i cant work like this much longer its too hard. it gets real bad on days when it rains. i know you guys have a thing to fill out on here for help but i wanted to ask before i filed anything out. do you think i should try to apply for social security disability or do you think i will get denied cuz its only arthritis?
