i have waited one year since my last appeal to SSD. Since May my attorney has been working on my case/brief to send in to get approved. Then I finally got the court date. My brief/medical records were sent in to the judge with a letter and filled out forms from the DOCTOR stating i was totally disabled and unable to work. My doctor has made this claim since Sept. 2000.it was sent in last week. yesterday the attorney's office called and said i was denied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the evidence even included several letters (affidavit's) from friends/family - now i have to go to the hearing Sept 23., 5 days before my 11th wedding anniversary. I got screwed in the car accident and workers comp cases. i am so scared - what more evidence does this @#$% judge WANT? my husband will have a nervous breakdown if i lose again. he is a wreak, as am i. i can't believe this jerk judge is having me get up early to drive 20 miles after receiving my case. i have had NOTHING BUT BAD LUCK since i was rear-ended Feb. 28, 2000. i can't take anymore - we've sold practically everything. we feel like God hates us. our entire marriage has been a struggle w/ my dying mother, now all this. All we want is a little happiness and enough money to live on. we've given up everything else, even ever having children after my miscarriage 6 weeks after the accident. How much is a persom supposed to take?????????????? I am so angry and there is no where to vent my anger. Then my attorney yelled at me yesterday and gave me a hard time. LIFE SUCKS! Please pray for me.
