My wife has struggled for many years and approximately 10 years ago things kind of exploded and she would not go to work and remain in bed for days, weeks and sometimes months in bed and would not get up for anything.
Over the last 10 years she has been hospitalized 3 times. Since Dec 2016 she has not worked. She was afforded Disability payments from her workplace and during the 1 1/2 years away from work finally got to see a psychiatrist who treats her and diagnosed her with PTSD and Bi Polar and my wife also participated in a programme that everyone had hoped would help her.
My wife went back to work in June and after about month she has again stopped going to work and getting up from bed. Over the last 10 years she has spent 5 of them in bed. There is no exaggeration as it is documented.
Her workplace cannot fire her because she is sick however have said they would give her a position number but no work. She is part of a union. I have no idea about Disability but I’m going to assume that be3cause she has been on Disability for 1 1/2 years she would have been cut off these benefits anyway.
Bottom line is she cannot work. How does she go about getting classified as being too diabled to work. Can she collect CPP. Any kind of answers or advice would be appreciated.
Not having any money come in just adds to her depression more.
