    Hi, I had my hearing today after waiting 2 yrs.

    OMG I broke down and couldnt talk without crying.

    Their was an advocate (sp) person in there, but the judge didnt even ask him if there was any work I could do.

    Was wondering if that could of been a good thing or a bad thing.

    Any info would be great. He said I would have my letter within 60 days, Like I havent waited long enough.

    I am in so much pain I cant even type anymore tonight.

    You may need to change your title, I thought you had a ? about physically hearing, i.e. hearing aids,etc.

    Anyway I never had to go to one but let's hope this is a good sign.

    Sorry to hear you are in so much pain, I know that feeling well.

    Take care

    P.S. You were getting close to the bottom so I wanted to bump your message back to the top.

    I would think it's GOOD NEWS if the vocational expert neglected to speak. I have my fingers crossed and I'm sending up a prayer for you. Feel better.

    At my hearing the vocational expert wasn't asked any questions either. When we were done, I asked my lawyer why, and the lawyer told me it was most likely because I had already won my case and met the SSDI disability requirements.

    So you should be happy-this is a GOOD thing. I received my approval letter just about two weeks after the hearing. Hope it works out the same for you.

    Hi, wow 2 weeks?

    That would be great.

    Did the judge tell you that it would take up to 60 days?

    When did you recivce your backpay?

    Its hard to feel happy yet, I am in so much pain in a big
    flare right now. Maybe I will be happier when the pain isnt so bad.

    I can't remember how long the judge said it would take to get a decision. It was a few years ago; my hearing was in 2005. My hearing was on March 30 and I got my backpay in June by direct deposit.
