On a bright, sunny day, it is precisely those looming clouds which interrupt the enjoyment of a
constancy of warmth; and when it is merely a temporary darkness, where a floating wisp will darken
the skies but for a brief moment, it is merely an irritation, a lazy thought where desire and
comfort are merely awaiting such passing of momentary time. But when the looming cloud remains, and others gather, the
discomfort turns to a chronicity of dismay, and it is time to change the venue of one's position.
The deciding point of filing for Federal disability Retirement
benefits, whether under FERS or CSRS, from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, is a
determination often based upon a "quality of life" state of being. Temporary
discomfort, like a sporadic, looming cloud, which merely creates an irritation, is a bearable state
of existence on the spectrum of that which constitutes the entirety of one's qualitative state of
life. When that spectrum becomes dominated by a chronic state of irritation, where
"irritation" has become transformed into a state where the brief respite from pain, or
clarity and acuity of mind, is the exception rather than the rule, then it is time to consider
filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
OPM disability retirement allows the Federal or Postal
worker to have the requisite time to recover and recuperate from one's medical condition, then
to seek out a second vocation in life -- one which will not continue to deteriorate and
exacerbate the medical condition. Discovering where one is on the spectrum of the
qualitative scale of existence is an important first step towards making that all-important
decision -- one which may have lifelong reverberating consequences, if one waits too
