It won’t go away on its own. We might wish it did; we might try to “will it” away; or, one might consider just ignoring it.
There are, to be sure, some problems which resolve themselves. Children and their emotionally-fraught years of teenage problems — they often resolve themselves through age and distance; although, in this day and age where greater danger lurks in the dark web of the ethereal world, the job of the parent often is to make sure the problems don’t compound themselves into irreversible calamities.
A limp, too, might resolve itself. And if you step in some dog-doo — yes, over time, walking with it on different surfaces will eventually scrape it all off from the soles of your shoes. But as with children and dog-doo, it is often a good idea to take the time and initiate some action which is aggressive, positive and deliberate.
Filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits under FERS requires just such an approach, because in the end, the chronic and debilitating medical condition is one of those unresolved problems.
