My attorney in the end felt it went well.  I wasn't nervous at all (thank goodness).  There was a voc. and DR. there. the judge did ask the DR. if what I described as my symptoms, be due to the Lupus/fibromyalgia and other conditions I have, DR. said yes.  The Judge asked if my list of symptoms would cause me to miss work more than 2-3 days a month, DR. sad yes.
My attorney asked the voc. expert if emploed would missing 2 days of wrk in a mo. be ok.  Voc. expert said yes, then attorney asked if missed 3 days would that be ok, voc ex. said no.
I wonder if because the judge metioned my onset date to attorney and asked him if that was ok, attorney agreed, if there is a posibilty I was approved.
I now I will have to wait some more hopefully it won't be too long.
Thanks everyone for your support!!

Hi Syl,
Well, here's hoping it went well!  Sounds like the voc expert said the right things. I went through this kind of thing many years ago too. It's stressful waiting isn't it!
I hope it's not a long wait for you too,
