I'm trying to get on SSI. I WAS An Aids diagnosis in 2004, T-Cells started at 17, now about 485, never had an opp. infection. The only thing with Hiv I deal with are a few side effects like diarrhea and nausea, a couple times a week. I also have pretty bad arthritis in both my knees and spine from an old car accident, so experience chronic pain daily, I'm on a pretty high script of Percocet 10mg 6-7 times a day. Iwas an alcoholic, after mainy relapses I have now been sober since 5-8-07. I get major depression (stay in bed days at a time) I can't imagine working or being able to work, but keep getting denied, I'm at the stage where I have appealed to a judge. Anyone have any experience with this process, suggestions welcomed. THANKS
