I have my Appeal Hearing Aug 12! Im so Nervous!!!

Postby africk22 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 3:43 am

So I finally got the call! Ive been out of work for over 2yrs now....which has sucked greatly!!! After my carwreck in 08 this has been a total life change. After being denied and denied it finally came time for a hearing to appeal so I did get an attorney but still im so nervous! I got the call Friday that our hearing was finally scheduled for Aug 12! Im so afraid since I havent had the best of luck with doctors I wont have the best of chances! I have no doctor that believes in chiari really, so that really makes me nervous I was hopin to have my appt with chiari institute in by then to have credibility on that issue :( Im just afraid theyll just see me how everyone else does when I go to doctors and Ill be immediatly dismissed! ANY ADVICE????

Congrats! Be sincere & honest in letting them know how life is for you on a daily basis. Explain the struggles you go through.

I didn't have to go to court, but I do remember the experiences that many others have gone through. Always remember to search older posts when looking for answers.

Being nervous is a normal response to something like this but telling the truth based on your experiences will get you through the court hearing. Answering questions in the same manner will ease your fears of the unknown.

You can do this. I wish you great success & look forward to hearing of your approval.

Take care,
GOD Bless!

I just had mine a few weeks ago....keep your answers short and to the point. Always look at the judge when speaking. If your sitting to long don't be afraid to ask to stand for a few minutes. They may have a job adviser there. After the judge finishes questioning you, he/she will ask the job adviser, hypothetically speaking, a person with your issues, are there any jobs in this economy that you could work. Depending on your job history he may have a few suggestions. DON'T WORRY IF HE DOES IS JUST HYPOTHETICAL. Or he may say no there are no jobs this individual could work (that what he he said in my case). Dress business casual all these little things the judge looks at. Thats what my lawyer said and she ruled in my favor. Thats all I can think of right now...but I know your gonna win.....
