Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

There is a process for filing with disability.I am sure you have discussed this likely with HR and your supervisor as they know you are disabled.They are just wanting to know if you have involved your HR and supervisor because it will end your job if you are granted permanent disability here.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated,
