    My ALJ hearing was just held on Tuesday. I got the award letter today!!! He found that I have been disabled since December 31, 2002.

    Unfortunately I won on the basis of depression. My fibro and myofascial pain syndrome were mentioned but the judge thought my pain was caused by my depression instead of the other way around.

    I used ALLSUP to represent me and would highly recomend them.

    I am so happy I don't know what to do!

    Glad you got through so fast. I'm going to look up "Allsup (?)" otherwise I'll be talking to a lawyer tomorrow. Congrats again!

    It doesnt matter if you got it for depression or the DD. We all have the depression so that is part of it. Again, congratulations!!

    ALLSUP is an excellent company. My husband got his SSI approved the first time also.

    Good for you. Now you can relax a bit.

    My case was considered dire need because we lost our home to foreclosure and I had to file for bankruptcy. Becasue of this my rep was able to get my case moved up. I still never expected a response so quickly.

    How awesome- best feeling ever-right?

    I would never have won on my pain alone. I won on depression anxiety etc.

    YOu won and I think it is easier to prove depression for the reviews anyway.

    Love, Deb

    thats interesting how the judge gave a ruling for your depression- my friend also had the same thing happen to him.

    its easier to dx pain than depression? i guess so.

    stay healthy!
