By either word, it relates to the significance of the emotion, and where it is placed — or remains — in one’s daily life. Is sadness placed for prominent display upon the mantel of your existence? Or, do you cloak yourself with the mantle of sadness, and walk about each day with it tightly wrapped around you?
Other characteristics can also be applied — as in the medical condition which one suffers from; the daily pain which one experiences; the panic attacks, depressive moods, and heightened anxiety which cannot be avoid, impacting the ability to perform one’s essential duties in one’s Federal or Postal job.
Is it time to take the medical conditions down from the mantel, and by doing so, shed the mantle which impacts and pervades all aspects of your life?
Federal Disability Retirement is a benefit available to all Federal and Postal employees under FERS, who have a minimum of 18 months of Federal Service. Whether it is the mantel or mantle of sadness, or the mantel / mantle of a medical condition which needs to be attended to, you should contact a FERS Medical Attorney who specializes in OPM Disability Retirement Law, and see whether or not you, as a Federal employee, may be eligible for a Federal Government benefit you deserve.
For, in the end, however we try and escape or avoid life’s difficulties, it is the mantel of our own making, or the mantle we choose to enshroud outselves in, which will make all the difference.
