    I am so sorry it took me so long to respond but my comp, has been messed up for a few months.
    But my hearing is Nov 15 and thanks for your prayers, blessings thank you so much.

    It took 20 months all together 2 denials and 13 months waiting on hearing date.

    So I wish all of you luck , my prayers and blessings go out to you, and I will let you know how it goes.

    I have heard some horrific stories people waiting 7 years my goodness.

    Babygirl44,

    Be yourself and be honest at your hearing! I originally filed for benefits July 2003 after two denials I had a hearing in May 2006 and received a favorable decision August 2006. It is a lesson in patience ! My decision letter from the Judge stated in it that he saw no evidence of exaggeration on my part and that it was clear that I was suffering as my Drs. had reported. I got alot of advice about going to the hearing looking like like I had just crawled out of bed, suggestions of don't shower, don't comb your hair, no make-up, no jewerly, no nice clothes. I didn't listen to any of that, I got up that morning took a shower like I always do, dressed modestly and put on just a little bit of make-up, wore my wedding rings and went in that hearing room and behaved like myself and just as I have with every attorney appointment. And when we were done my attorney was actually upset with me because he said I was combative with the Judge, but I told him I didn't mean to be I was just confused. I was concerned that if the Judge felt that way it may not go in my favor, but evidently the Judge just saw someone who was being honest.
    Just be honest and be yourself and you will be okay.

    Cngrdulations to you.

    I too have just recieved a hearing date dec 12th I am not as upbeat about it as you are however as I just posted a topic on the fact that I have not found an attorney to ehlp me yet I am affraid it is not going to go well for me.

    I hope it goes well for you I well be watching this site to see how you do. The Lawyer I have been talking to told me I should should get the hearing posponed till I have more medical evidence. Mybe I well but I have been waitng so long already.

    had some suggestions after his successful hearing. If you can't find his post from a few months ago, you could start a new post and ask him.

    Good luck!

    Babygirl44,

    Don't put yourself in any unnecessary pain. I took my pain meds and was still in bad shape the day of the hearing. I can't imagine what I would have been like if it had been a bad day and I didn't take my meds intentionally. If you are asked how far you can bend you tell them or show them how far you can go before it hurts, don't bend really far and then say "but it hurts to do that". Don't do anymore than your body can do before it hurts. We should not have to hurt ourselves to prove a point. In my hearing I was asked how much I could lift and I compared it to a half gallon of milk and said that was with TWO hands. Best of luck to you, I hope it goes well !!
