I have been trying to get Social Security Disability for over 2 years now. My conditions have became much worse since going through this nightmare. I am at my wits end. I do have an attorney, but it seems like I have not been represented well, in fact, my mental history from ______ _______ here in ______ was left out completely and now I must wait for an appeal justice to send it back to the hearing stage again. That will take another 18 months. I have problems due to my conditions that limit my ability to make sure everything was done correctly. I have surgery coming up on the 29 of January, and then need surgery on my back after that. This will limit my involvement even more. Despite my pain, depression, anxiety, parathyroid and loss of part of my left hand I have been doing volunteer work 2 hours a day at ________ ________ here in ________ to try to do my share in helping myself.
I am asking if there is something that you can do so no one needs to go
through this. I paid in to disability insurance most of my life. I even
paid in on it when I was well enough to run and operate my own business.
Now I need it and have had to wait over 2 years and probably another 1 1/2 years to get back what I paid into. It is obvious to me that this is not what the Government had in mind back in the depression. Some States have already decided to skip the 2nd appeal. This might be an option.
