I initially filed for SSI and SSDI in December, 2003 with a DDate of Oct 2000. I am claiming Fibromyalgia, CFS, Depression/Anxiety, and a few other things. I took my case as high as the Appeals Committee and they remanded my case back to the same AJL judge that denied me before. My attorney thinks we now have a good chance, only 1-2% of cases get remanded. My trial is this Thurs, 11/19th. Please say a prayer that I win. Here's the thing though, they might plea out my case from the time I reached 50 (2007) instead of backpaying me to 2000. That is ALOT of money!!! Would you go for it all and take a chance at losing or would you plea out, take what you can get??? I'm so confused what to do. I'm tired of fighting and need some income so I can improve my quality of life.
