  • I did have my hearing by now.

    I did have my hearing down in Savannah today. Yep. That has been done by now. Oh! My mother and I definitely showed up early.(which I could have stayed in bed 30 more minutes) Regardless, they were running behind. Geez! I should have known. The questions that were asked were not hard for me. I had met with the lawyer last Thursday to begin with. Oh! I was ready. The vocational advocate, or whatever her title happens to be, the one on the phone and not in the room, had stated I could do this job or that job.(like a couple that she did mention)(such as mail clerk) Yeah, righ! OK. She was stating I can't be a custodian, like I was over 15 years, again. My lawyer came back with a couple of questions that actually made her say "no" on something that she had said "yes" to previously. That should have been good. She had mentioned sedentary work. OK. She later stated I would need to be on the task at least 90% of every hour. By the way, I do spend over 10% of many hours in a barthroom.(to which she recanted after learning that) OK. One doctor had stated I should not keep bending and stooping while another had stated the fact that I have a history of falls should keep me from holding down a steady job. Oh, yeah! I don't know the outcome, but I can feel some tiredness on me now. Yep.
    (copied and pasted from yesterday)(not in the mood to change any of it right now) Oh, well!

    I've been denied twice already. I'm a 36 yr. old. male with IC. When I get a flare-up there is no pain, just discomfort. My doctor said it can be cured with a diet, and that I can work. I have a part time job delivering papers with only 23 customers. So it only takes me 15 minutes to finish my route. If I get a flare-up it can for about 2 or 3 days or longer, depending on what I ate the day before.
    But judging by what problems your having I'm sure you'll get your ssi. I guess it's different here in Michigan.
    good luck.

      If you're not able to work beyond that 15-minute paper route, my suggestion is to talk to an attorney about filing another appeal --- and you might want to see a different doctor! IC can NOT be cured by diet.

        Re: I did have my hearing by now.

        I'm afraid to see another doctor, I've been with this doctor since 2007 or 2008 and she speaks truthfully. But doesn't quite understand how I feel. I did speak to my therapist about it. She said "It used to be so much easier to get SSI, but these days it's a lot harder".
        But I've heard people w/out real problems are getting SSI, and it's not fare to the ones that really need it. My ic isn't pain it's discomfort
        in the groin after I pee. The feeling is like I haven't emptied yet, I have to cross my legs until it goes away. I've been in the hospital because
        of it. But that was before I was diagnosed in May 2013. Is there any males in the forums with this type of problem I'm going through.

          I'm not positive, but I do think a physician's statement is pretty much essential to qualify.
