    Well I had my hearing yesterday. It lasted about 30 minutes.
    The only thing the judge asked me was that "he couldn't believe that I was on all the medication that was listed" LOL I said yes sir I am. I said actually that list has been shortned and that prior to that list I was on more medication.

    My question is for those of you that have been through a hearing did you have a Vocational Expert there?
    I did not and my atty thought that was VERY odd. She just said that if I get denied that it is grounds for a good appeal.

    Just wanted some input.
    Did the judge ask any of you questions? My lawyer just questioned me and the only thing the judge asked was about my meds.
    thanks

    Hi etn,

    First off, good luck winning your disability claim!

    I hope this isn't too intrusive but could you list what meds you are on...or at least give the number of Prescribed meds.

    Are you also on a lot of supplements/vitamins/OTC drugs?

    Sorry to ask this, but I should be having my ALJ hearing in about 6 months???......so I'm just trying to pick up as many possibly helpful tips as possible. I'm sure you can relate?!

    Thank you for any help you can provide....Jill...........

    There wasn't a VE either. Just the judge, court clerk, an SSA appointed Dr, my attorney and me.

    My hearing was in Los Angeles a few years ago.

    Sincerely

    Hi ET--my thoughts are--if there was no VE there, perhaps the ALJ had already determined that you could not work because of your medications. Did they tell you on your hearing notice that a VE WOULD be there?<P>It seems to me that if you were going to be denied, they would have LEGALLY had to question you alot more and get your testimony, other than just that answer. I am also hoping that a 30 min. hearing is a good thing cuz that's what mine was, also, and the SUSPENSE IS DRIVING ME NUTS!!<P>Please post when you hear from them, but i think it sounds favorable. Good Luck--L
