I have had Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) since March 2002. Both of my sons also got ME/CFS at ages 6 and 10. Our younger son fully recovered after 10 years of mild illness. Our older son still has ME/CFS and also has Lyme disease plus two other tick infections. This blog is about how our family lives with chronic illness, with a focus on improving our conditions and enjoying our lives in spite of these challenges.
this for a cold splash of water on the face? My lawyer just called
about my disability hearing tomorrow.
There are 5 disability judges in
Delaware, and we have the 3rd lowest approval rating of all 50 states!
He said he can tell by the way the schedule is arranged tomorrow that it
will be one of 3 judges. Two of those have approval rates of 20% - that
puts them among the lowest 10-15% of all the Social Security judges in
the entire nation!! So, I have a 67% chance of getting a judge who
almost always says no. Very discouraging!
The whole process is just so unfair - the mere fact that it relies on which judge you get rather than the merits of your case is just crazy.
Wish me luck - I have a
feeling tomorrow will be a difficult day emotionally.
