    The best thing to do is ask for your doctors,therapists, physicians, ect to write a detailed letter as to what is wrong. Permanent injuries and inability to perform certain tasks must be supported in writing and ask that it be put in simple layman's terms so nothing can be turned around by the pension board. Also prepare a list of the things you can no longer do like stand for more than a half hour, sit for more than a half hour, bending to pick things up...go in to a detailed job description pointing out the duties you can no longer handle.The more solid proof you have other than injuries that can not be physically seen, the better off your chance is if you have to fight for it.Good luck to you

    good answer, mom. it's not something that is part of my life but i think you helped teddy.
