It is variously described — an obstruction; an obstacle; but seen from the inside, it allows for privacy and protection. Think about the story of the Three Little Pigs and the differing materials of construction, where the first two failed in implementing a secure-enough wall to withstand the forces of the wolf’s cunning attacks.
In every phase of life, we encounter them; how we view them, what we do when we see them as obstructions as opposed to insulating, protective entities — it reveals much.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who are intending to file for Federal Disability Retirement benefits from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, “the wall” is represented by OPM itself; for, they hold all of the proverbial “cards” in approving or denying a Federal Disability Retirement case.
You, the Federal or Postal applicant, stand on the left side of the wall. How you climb over the wall onto the right side — an approval from OPM — depends upon how you maneuver against the wall. Do you go against the wall by sheer luck and lack of forethought? Or, do you build or buy a ladder — metaphorically speaking, of course — which includes logical and legal argumentation?
Contact an OPM Retirement Attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law and stop banging your head against the wall, and instead, begin to build the solid foundation which is built to overcome the obstacle between you and a Federal Disability Retirement.
