I know some of you are familiar with my story and some aren't. In a nutshell, I keep getting denied for social security benefits despite all the excellent reasons I have for being on it. I talked to my lawyer yesterday and he said the only option you have left is to go to Federal court and sue them. I cannot refile because of my insurance date expired in Dec of 2001. That is confusing to me. He warned me and said this is very time consuming on his part and make sure you really want to keep going on this. It could take up to 2 years before it's done. He also said I have a very good case and he is sure he can get the decision reversed. He said I wouldn't be taking all this work on if I didn't have faith. So, here I am waiting again. I just have to be patient. Also, I read the post posted by Louguins6 Heres what I did to get disability.....I printed it out and am getting the book she referred to in her post. She was really helpful and all of your posts made me feel alot better. It gave me some hope, which is what I haven't seen in a long time. Will keep you updated.
