I am in the reconsideration phase of my disability claim and in the state I live in, after the first denial, it automatically goes to an ALJ Hearing. I found out from my attorney about 3 weeks ago that the only info. the judge needed yet to make his determination was he needed my earnings from my Mary Kay business (long story, but I quit my full-time job because I couldn't work the hours, then did Mary Kay, became a director, lost my position due to not being able to work the hours, etc.)so I never really made any money because I couldn't do the tasks required. This waiting is driving me CRAZY!!!!! I just want it to be over! My lawyer says I have a very fair judge, so that is good. At least if he decides it has to go to a hearing then I will have that worry off of me. I guess self-employment cases are more difficult because you don't punch a time clock or anything and it is hard to prove your hours. BUT lucky for me, I am very anal in keeping records and my hubby and I had to make copies of 3 YEARS worth of weekly sales sheets that shows how much time I worked. He is probably overwhelmed at all of my stuff, but I gave him proof! Any suggestions while waiting??
