Preferring Disability

The strangest thing happened yesterday. I was examining a woman and at the end of the report of her brain findings, I asked her permission to treat her. She said, "No." I asked her why she didn't want her first treatment and she said she didn't want to get well too soon because she was going to be evaluated for disability benefits. I said, "What if you get well enough to go back to work?" She looked at me with a stunned expression. She left without treatment. It was the first time that has ever happened.
