I had the opportunity to present my case to Judge Kuperstein and could not have been more pleased. There will be some time before he renders a judgment, since one of the most recent doctors did not submit his notes yet and I wasn't as organized as I thought I was. Judge Kuperstein seemed to honestly listen to my answers and I felt that he was compassionate. As we were finishing up, he took an extra minute to explain that he is bound by the letter of the law regarding sedentary work options, despite the fact that those jobs might not be currently available. My gut is telling me I will be denied again, but I sincerely believe that the Judge gave me a chance to put my facts forward on open ears. I can't bring myself to act like a whiney b-ch and cry the blues or play up my pains because I have too much respect for myself and the court. I'm sure Judge Kuperstein can see right through the acts, too. I'm looking forward to the outcome and can only hope that Judge Kuperstein completely understands why I can't work, even in a sedentary position.

Just got my denial notice. I coughed intensely from my asthma throughout the entire hearing. I have such trouble breathing on an everyday basis. This judge's perspective is erroneous at best. He is a symptom of what's wrong with CT State government. How can I work when I can't even breathe without talking???

ALJ Kupertein is very pleasant off the bench, but on the bench he's ruthless. He has made numerous claimants cry and focuses on minutia to the determent of the claimant.
