THE MIDAS QUESTIONNAIRE IS 5 HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE AND INACCURATE QUESTIONS SUPPOSEDLY USED TO DETERMINE MEDICAL DISABILITY. IT IS HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE NONSENSE AND IS OPEN TO FRAUDULENT ANSWERS BY A GROSSLY IMMORAL SOCIAL SOCIETY AND MANY INDIVIDUALS WHO LIE ON AVERAGE TWICE A DAY IN MANY CASES IF NOT MORE.
Fraud is rampant in the medical profession especially when non scientific vague inaccurate questionnaires are use to determine the severity of a medical condition.
1. IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS I MISSED WORK 10 TIMES DUE TO HEADACHES
BUT WHAT I REALLY DIDN’T TELL YOU THAT I OVERSLEPT 5 OF THOSE DAYS AND DIDN’T FEEL LIKE SHOWING UP AT WORK. 1 OF THOSE DAYS I WENT SHOPPING. 1 DAY I WAS TOO TIRED FROM WORKING HARD AND DECIDED NOT TO SHOW UP FOR A NEEDED REST. 1 DAY I REPAIRED MY CAR. 1 DAY I PLAYED POKER WITH MY BUDDIES AND DECIDED NOT TO COME IN. 1 DAY I DIDN’T SHOW UP BECAUSE I JUST DIDN’T FEEL LIKE IT. THAT’S A TOTAL OF 10 DAYS THAT I COULDN’T WORK BECAUSE OF HEADACHES!!!!!
2. MY PRODUCTIVITY WAS REDUCED BY HALF DUE TO HEADACHES.
WHAT I DIDN’T TELL YOU THAT I WAS SUFFERING FROM THE SIDE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL AND DRUGS AND THERE WERE SOME DAYS WHEN I JUST DIDN’T FEEL LIKE WORKING A FULL DAY SO I SPENT TIME GOOFING OFF AND BROWSING THE INTERNET AND JUST DAYDREAMING OF HOW SHITTY THIS JOB REALLY IS AND HOW I HATE MY BOSS AND HATE THE WORK AND CAN‘T WAIT TO PUNCH OUT THE CLOCK EVERY DAY EARLY.
3. IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS I DIDN’T DO ANY HOUSEWORK, NO HOME REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE, NO SHOPPING AND CARING FOR CHILDREN OR RELATIVES BECAUSE OF MY HEADACHES.
WHAT I DIDN’T TELL YOU IS THAT I HATE DOING HOUSEWORK, I CAN’T DO HOME REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE BECAUSE I’M NOT HANDY WITH TOOLS AND COULDN’T BE BOTHERED, I DID NO SHOPPING BECAUSE I CAN’T AFFORD TO BUY ANYTHING ON MY LOUSY MINIMUM WAGE AND MY WIFE USUALLY DOES THE SHOPPING. I DIDN’T DO ANY CARING FOR MY CHILDREN OR RELATIVES BECAUSE THEY ARE SPOILED AND A PAIN IN THE NECK AND I CAN’T STAND MY RELATIVES CONSTANTLY ANNOYING ME WITH COMMENTS ABOUT HOW LOUSY A PARENT I AM.
4. IS AN UNCLEAR CRAPPY QUESTION WHICH EVEN I HAD DIFFICULTY FIGURING OUT.
5. IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS I MISSED FAMILY, SOCIAL, AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES FOR ALL THE THREE MONTHS BECAUSE OF LEVEL 10 HEADACHES.
(WHAT WAS THE FREQUENCY OF MISSED DAYS IN THE 3 MONTHS? IF IT WAS ONLY ABOUT 5 TIMES THEN THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT AN INDICATION OF DISABILITY.)
WHAT I DIDN’T TELL YOU IS THAT MY ALCOHOLISM AND SEVERE DRUG ADDICTION GIVES ME HEADACHES EVERY DAY. I AM WASTED MOST OF THE TIME AND DON’T SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY, SOCIAL, OR LEISURE ACTIVITIES BECAUSE I DON’T PARTICIPATE IN MY LOUSY FAMILY, HAVE NO SOCIAL LIFE AND CAN’T AFFORD LEISURE ACTIVITIES ON MY MINIMUM WAGE!!!!!
