Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Nov 23, 2017 | 0 Comments

I hope that everyone will have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.  Though the focus of the holiday has shifted to the Two F's, Food and Football, it remains wise to remember all the things we have to be thankful for.  Dealing with the disabled has allowed me to focus on simple things to be grateful about.  For example, just not being in pain.  No matter how bad a day you are having

May It Be Safe And Joyous

or how stressed out you are, it makes sense to take a moment to acknowledge that you are not in pain. For millions of people, there is no such thing as a pain-free day. 

Take time to give thanks as well for a clear mind.  Far too many people are profoundly troubled by anxiety, depression, or worse.  While you are pausing to enjoy being free from pain, be glad as well that you are not too afraid or depressed to function.

On a personal note, I am grateful for being in a profession that allows me to help people. A former client stopped in yesterday.  I helped him get his disability more than five years ago.  I remembered him as being in poor health and in decline. But when I saw him yesterday he had lost weight and cleaned up and he had the look of a  man who was focused and ready for anything.  That sort of success story keeps me coming to work each day.

Enjoy the food and football, but don't lose sight of the meaning of the day. It's right there in the name, Thanksgiving.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
