This is so ridiculous. I have been ill for like 25 + years (I will be 55 in March) and have worked since I was 16 years old ... lots of documentation (DRs etc), representation, and I get denied ... 2x. lol If I don't laugh I will cry. Now I have to wait another 6-18 months (maybe longer) for a darn hearing. BUT ... according to my reps, 95% of cases win at that point. OK? What about the other freakin' 5%??? Will I be in that darn 5% ??? It will be 2 years in February since I haven't worked due to my health. What happens IF the LTD cuts me off? This is just ridiculous. Maybe I should have just gone it on my own? Unfortunately, I had no one to help me and Lord knows I cannot focus to read and my cognitive abilities are shot. So here I am ... another poor sap that has to STRESSSSSSSSSS about whether or not I will win SSDI eventually. IT SUCKS TO BE US!
