Unfavorable....I feel I didn't get it due to my new DR. didn't feel out an RFC form and also the LTR states my symptoms seemed to be exagerated when I gave my symptoms list and what I can't do anymore. Judge said I choose to lay down during most of day to to pain and that is a lifestyle you have chosen. (oh yes!!, I really love to feel like this), this pissed me off.
I can't beleive he said that, I f I went to a DR. everytime I didn't feel good I'd be there daily, also, my new DR's don't accept walk-ins, so by the time I do see them I may be ok.
The LTR did state if I had an RFC form, showing my limitations frm DR, he would have granted me Disabled,cause it would have been directed by Med/voc. expert.
Also, states HB testimony, co-wrkrs ltr are not fully credible, they are not medical professionals and not competnt to make DX or argue severity of my symptoms in relationship to her ability to work. The claimants hb is the sole support for the c and therefore he has financial interest in seeing the c recieve benefits. Therefore his opion is unbiased. most, importantly the statements r not supported by the clinical or diagnostic medical evidence, in fact the c admitted she drives and runs errands such as going to Post office or grocery store w/out assistance (I never metioned Post office)
This is so ridiculous, I have evidence of my condition, maybe not of depression, but I stated I do feel depressed, maybe I should have let my old DR. from 3yrs ago say I was depressed. because she said I looked depressed but at that time I din't want to be DX like that.
I was just honest at my hearing and described and gave examples of how when I last worked how I was affected, giving examples during hearing is good my attny said. Also, attny suggested my hb would be a good credible witness. The thing I thought would hurt my case is the I wrkd frm 11/2007 thru 4/2008, 5mos, that was not used against me, as I did not engage in substancial gainful activity since 2006, the alleged onset. He noted the times I attempted to wrk part-time.
Do y'll think I should appeal and an RFC done, even if its frm an old DR not in network?
