  • Hearing went horrible!!!!!

    I am sure that I will not be approved. I had the worst judge in the world, SSI brought in a cardiologist to read the med records. I dont understand that one at all. He didnt even hardly know what IC was. The judge did not research on IC. He came in and said that he didnt know what this disease was, and asked the cardiologist to explain it to him. He wouldnt let me explain anything. He yelled at me over and over and asked me why it took so long to get a dx, and why did I go all my life thinking that UTI's and frequency was normal??? I dont know, cause nobody ever told me it wasnt. I had a primary that would just always give me antibiotics and send me home. He wanted to know why I had the ovary removed, I told him that the OB thought it was that, but it wasnt, and the judge argued with me telling me that he had the records that said there was something wrong with my ovary. Ya, says my old OB, but the hospital records said there was nothing wrong with it after it was out and tested. Oh, and everytime I would try to talk he would tell me to hush, and only talk when I was told to. He wouldnt let my attorny talk at all. It was a nightmare. I am not joking. It was a mess. I was crying when I finally got out of the room. It did not go well at all, and now he says that he will look over my case and make a decision and get back to me. My attorny was shocked how rude the judge was, and he doesnt know what to say, other than it will probably take 2-3 months to get a decision. Great, heay. If he turns me down we will take it to federal court, I dont wanna ever go throught that again. Oh, and the judge told me that maybe I dont even have IC, maybe there is something wrong with my female insides. I have 3 doctors with writen statements that say I have IC. I have the dx, right in front of his face. He is one of those people, a non believer. I should have just stood up and walked out. There was no reason to sit there and let him treat me like that, when I knew it was getting me no where. Oh, and to top it off, the cardiologist told the judge that I could have my bladder replaced, and when I tried to tell him that wasnt true, he told me to hush. He didnt want to hear anything from me, or my attorny, he just wanted to hear what the cardiologist had to say??????? He is a heart doc, I dont have heart problems, I dont get it. Had to vent, sorry. I dont think I can do this again. [img]mad.gif[/img]

    I sure do hope some others post as to how their experiences went infront of a judge while having an attorney present cuz it sounds like the one you have isn't worth a crap. Sure, he wants to take it to the next level.....what's he get? 25% off the top? The longer it takes, the more he gets. I think I'd be a little bit angry with him too.

    You've been thru so much Jasmine and it sure does seem crappy that you have some more to go thru but don't quit. You deserve that disability. You worked for it, now you fight for it.

    tons and tons of hugs~
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

      That is just TOTALLY unbelieveable to me - is the guy living in the dark ages or what?!? Are we all still just hysterical females to him?!? I want to know how he goes to sleep at night, being such an a-hole. Arghh!!!!!!!!!!! [img]mad.gif[/img]

      I'm so angry for you, Jasmine! I hope some folks who have been through this process will post with suggestions and support. Teri is right, Jazzy - you deserve disability and don't let one jerk keep you from fighting for it!

      Hang in'll be in my thoughts.
      Sending comforting hugs,
      Melanie J.

        Melanie - I am so sorry that you had to go through that. For the life of me, I can't understand what makes people so uncompassionate when it comes to IC. I have just begun paperwork for disability, and have to say I am not looking forward to it...sigh. I responded to another post one time with respect to disability and finished it off with something I had hoped might make that person chuckle a bit. I don't know if it did or not, but I will try with you and hope it puts a smile on your face :
        (this is if I'm denied disability....)
        "If all this fails, come hell or high water, I will personally go down myself, state my case and while I'm at it - pee myself a few times and pretend I don't notice. If that does not get their attention, I will start to grunt, squint my eyes, get a very serious look on my face and then mess myself - and pretend I don't notice!"

          I am so sorry to hear of all this.It angers me to read your post [img]mad.gif[/img] What the hell would a cardiologist know about IC. HELLO it a bladder disease not a Heart disease. This judge sounds like he has rocks in his head.This just sickens me,and that remark about the diagnosis,yeah like we like to waste yrs of our life just for fun going to dr to dr. All I can say is if I was in your courtoom they probaly would have thrown me out for smacking that judge!!!!-JOJO [img]mad.gif[/img]
