Just had my hearing on sept 10th. was very nervose and scared of getting ask questions because I tend to "rattle on" then forget what the actual question was in the first place. also just the unknowns of what was going to happen at a hearing. I started the morning with a headache which is an everyday thing now for me the hearing started with name, bd, ect then it moved to questions about dates of last work..I totaly lost it there..start studdering, proscastinating then the using my fingers to try to count back by year to figure it out. But, I simply could not remember the dates and blurted out if I had something to look at I could remember! My lawyer moved on to another question. The thing that suprised me is that my lawyer ask me all the questions and not the judge. The VE was on the telephone..who never said one thing other than say he was present and introduced himself. once all the questions was asked; my lawyer ask the judge if he had any question for me. the Judge said I do not and he looked at the phone and said " and I do not need to hear from the VE..(he called his name) then he just pushed the button on the phone to disconnect the phone call with the VE..the VE never got the chance to said one word or good bye. out side the fed building my lawyer said he felt really strong that we won based on the Judge not wanting the VE to testify. and that he has never had a case that went this way that didnt win. He also stated that I should hear something within 4 to 6 weeks. I can not stress how gratfull I am that the hearing part of this whole wait is over.
