Hi Deb,

I am so sorry about the decision. Is there any way to appeal it? Also, did they know there is a relationship between you and your son? Might have had something to do with the decision? Just a thought...

gramps you are right the next appeal is the federal Court.Like Gramps said you did not mention a Psychiatrist,they are very important when it come down to a judge ruling.Are you getting your meds from your PCP or who??It would be my guess the judge did not consider your depression because you had no doctor to back your claim.I am on disability and if any other doctor scripts your meds for your depression than a Psychiatrist then they will not use as a factor in determing your disability.I to want to say good luck and let us know how is goes.

My family doctor put me on lexapro my pain doctor said i had a lot of anxity and depression and go to my family doctor for help so i did.My son have faxed my report to a friend thats a ssd lawyer he is to get back with me .I wonder if some of my records got lost or put in with some one else's at first they lost my records and i had to apply over then in the judge's letter he kept talking about my old doctor and i haven't seen him since2004 he said my family doctor and pain doctor weren't crediable .Also there weren't nothing said about 7 bad disks but he did say i have server arthtris but i could go back to work .Boy do they play with your mind iam really under stress now .By reading the report its's like your are taking all these meds and nothing is a matter.And the letter was sent to a different address then mineI think i said what all i had to say.Thanks for being here Deb

In any legal proceeding, the most important part of the case is the paper trail. Don't rely on anyone except yourself to obtain your records. You are the one who knows what doctors you've seen for what problem over the years. If you have DDD, contact the hospital that did the MRI and get the films and written radiology reports. Get copies of all test results from every provider who ordered them. Sometimes you'll have to turn to the testing facility to get those records if they're more than three or four years old. Try to gather every scrap of written evidence you can and present it to your attorney.

What SSDI looks for is if you can do ANY kind of work. Even if it's minimum wage work like taking tickets at a movie theater. You have to prove that you are disabled enough to be completely unreliable in any kind of occupation. For proof, you must have written documents.
