I got denied because he could not read my doctor's hand wrighting and because I can also retained eye to eye contact with all of my medical personal staff just because your looking at someone doesn't mean your are retaining the information, and all doctor's say that anyways even if it's not true and missed doctor's appointments maybe I have a valid reason for missing them, he didn't even mention anything about my degenerative lumbar stenosis back issues in the denial letter I am NOT allowed to lift anything over 15 pounds. And I have to have another surgery on my back, every job I have applied to I they want you to be able to lift at least 30 to 35 pounds and as soon as I told them that I could not lift that they told me there's no reason to hire you, and I also have bipolar disorder high anxiety and just because I retain a driver's license I was also denied there are people out there with no limbs at all that received Social Security supplement and drive a vehicle also, this was not a very fair decision at all and I am also taking this to the appeals Council I got my denial letter on the 6th day of this month, and I aso feel that the man that does the job things at the hearing was so not impartial to me because the state of Indiana was paying him for his services, I have other issues also I'm not trying to collect free money I cannot honestly work, I also probably got denied due to the fact that I did not have a lawyer but I'm hard headed stubborn and I like to try to do things on my own, :\ I don't think your decision was very fair or just on my behalf,

This judge asks very limited preliminary questions; questions atty about: 1. Client meeting or equaling a listing 2. severe impairments that do not meet or equal a listing 3. looks through every page of exhibits and if they are not your clients better be ready to strike them 4. asks random surprise questions (sorry cant be more detailed than that i.e. he asked me why on an RFC submitted by clients doctor would he say the noise level should not be more than moderate and THEN asked me to piont out medical records that would substantiate that conclusion) Really nice guy really pleasant in hearings but they last a very long time
