To make a long story short I am waiting for the judges decision, she needs to speak with a medical expert, which she should of done in the first place instead of a vocational expert. Oh well I have nothing to loose to wait even longer. I had filed in 2003 and I just got my first hearing. Hopefully my last to. Sam

Hi Sam. I wish you very good luck with your disability hearing. If anybody deserves it, you do. Maybe then you could think of retiring, because I know how difficult it has been for you to continue working.
I'll be thinking of you.

Hi Sam,
I hope your disability will come through for you. That's a long time to wait. I was very fortunate in getting my disability. I didn't even have to go through a hearing. I am so sorry for all you have had to go through. Best of luck this time!

HI Sam,
Sorry I am late here, but I can't believe you have to wait even longer!!! Three years isn't long enough? Hopefully you will hear soon.... wishing you luck!

Sam,
I was just thinking about you and wondering if you have heard anything. I wonder what the standard is in terms of time with getting an answer after a hearing.

It must be driving you crazy!! I know it would me. Hang in there.

Hi Sam:

It seems I remember you on another board and you were waiting to get your hearing. I am so glad that you finally got it! I am hoping the decision to be in your favor. Bless you.
