Despair is bad enough; silent despair, her cousin to avoid.
Sometimes, sharing the trouble, “talking it out” with someone else, complaining to a spouse or friend, or even just venting — helps to expiate the cumulative stresses which grow relentlessly within the body and mind of the individual. Perhaps that is what social media is ultimately all about — an outlet for expression, however imperfect, which satisfies a very basic human need. For, silent despair is that desolation of one’s spirit which has no avenue leading to human contact, and that is the worst type of despair.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition prevents the Federal or Postal employee from performing one or more of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal job, talk to a Federal Disability Retirement Lawyer about whether or not Federal Disability Retirement benefits is an avenue for your despair.
Silent despair never leads to a solution; speaking with an expert in the field of Federal Disability Retirement Law, at the very least, allows for you to consider options which you may not have previously considered.
