Ok I am totaly upset and in tears. I have a hearing date onDec 12th and I still do not have an attorney to represent me is this going to be a real problem? The Attorney I have been talking to is saying I still do not have enough evidence to win my case That I need to get into see another rhuematologist other than the one I have had in the past. But my current doc has not referred me to him yet only to physical therapy. I have an apt with an orthopedist but this lawyer says he well not be very helpful to me. I don't know what to do, the lawyer told me to go to the hearing and have them postpone till nest year when I have more evidence. Should I do that or should I just take my chances? and go it alone without an attorney? I know some of you have said I don't need an attorney to get my Claim but I have heard both ways. I am so upset right now I want to forget the whole dang thing.
