    I HAVE BEEN ON THIS BOARD FOR 3 YEARS, THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND INFO, YOU HAVE BEEN A BLESSING. AFTER BEING ILL FOR 3 YEARS AND SEEING 16 DOCTORS AND 2 DENIALS FROM SOC SEC I FINALLY WENT IN FRONT OF A JUDGE LAST WEEK. HE RULED IN MY FAVOR AND I STILL CANT BELIEVE IT. I CAN CONSENTRATE ON MY HEALTH AND QUIT STRESSING ABOUT MY FINANCES.
    IT WAS A LONG HAUL BUT GETTING A LAWYER AND KEEPING THE FAITH PULLED ME THROUGH IT . GOD BLESS YOU ALL KEEP THE FAITH AND LIVE IN THE MOMENT, DONT LOOK TO FAR AHEAD................CHOW FOY

    Thank you for posting this wonderful news. I am going on 2 years and am getting desperate. I called my local Congressman's office to ask for assistance since I am just now waiting for a hearing.

    Could you please tell me what your diagnosis is and what State you live in. At what point did you get the atty? I am using Allsup.

    I am sooo very happy for you!

    I am really happy for you. I know what a struggle it is I got mine in 01 but it had nothing to do with the CFS and epstein barr i have now i don't know how long it would have taken with those. I am always happy to see someone not give up and get it across to the judges that we are sick
    again congrats

    I know we both won our cases at the same time and I was wondering if you received any letters yet. I got my "official approved" letter yesterday. It's about 10 pages. Of course it tells you money comes from a different office.

    How about you?

    I just got mine in Dec. 08 with two denials, 3 years and didn't have to go before a judge afterall. I guess the lawyer was able to get me out of it somehow but I was thrilled! I never dreamed it would happen.
