Shame on you Judge Waters. You have no idea the pain I'm in. I worked in the ER so I know how many fakers on SSD. I am not faking and if you read the reports you can see. I worked 35+ years and never received any support including child support. Now when I need the support you are deciding my fate. I have been knocked down several times and got right back up, this time did me in. Now I'm about to be 59 and I'm devastated. You know no one will hire me. I didn't plan this you can see I have worked since 15 years old. Why pay a "Vocational Expert" if your not going to listen? He said with all my limitations I can not work. I guess the MRI showing 4 disc budge ,protrusion,slit in L4-5 and the height loss plus since first denial I have had Breast Cancer surgery and 2 skin Cancer surgeries,on heavy medication and very depressed! Making a salad or microwave dinner or using a swifter doesn't mean I'm not in pain! By the way I now have nothing and stay in a room at my son's house, I don't do any of that! Pain Management told me to keep body moving.some days I hurt so bad my 5yr old granddaughter rubs me. Dr said I'm always going to be on medication and even surgery wouldn't help my back. The people who see me often know how I struggle. Like anything good days and more bad days. I heard that most are denied the first time, I must say after all reports you received I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. I guess it was just a flashlight for when I'm homeless.

I just want to voice my opinion on the Unfavorable decision that was made on my case recently. I want to let you know how disappointed I was when I read your decision. Although, you found my doctors credible in their diagnosis of my disabilities you questioned my character and called me a liar for the answer that I gave you under Oath. While reading this report I find it disturbing because you contradict yourself, your/my doctor’s notes. Ergo, the testimony that I gave to you concerning my day-to-day activities, my health, schooling and simply trying to care for two teenage sons you dismissed it. I have worked for over 35 years, which is on record, not mentioning the years that are not on record. If I were not in pain from day to day sometimes continuously, I would have a job and be working. I believe that everyone has good in them and people try to be fair to the very best of their ability. However, I also know that you really have to consult your higher being when it comes to making decision that could shatter a person’s life. I am sorry that my integrity and character was questionable to you. I thank God that I am a woman who has great Hope in him. Because if I did not I would have been crushed not only from you denying my case but also because you attacked my character by calling me a liar. My hope is that the next person who comes before you that you see and hear them. I believe that you are a fair judge who weighs all the factors in people’s cases to the best of your knowledge. Therefore, my prayer for you is that God gives you more discernment when you make judgments on peoples cases and character. I prayed that because it is a need for all involved in making decisions on people’s livelihoods. Our system is so broken that when honest people who really have issue in theirs lives and they need the system to work for them it does not. I pray that God give you all wisdom and discernment. Thank you for reading.
