I just received my "Unfavorable" decision in the mail and after reading it, I wonder exactly what a person has to do - especially after the Veterans Administration rated me as "Unemployable". I made it very clear in my testimony that I cannot work set hours. My body tells me when I can and cannot do things - ANYthing. I cannot sit in a position required to type (or otherwise work on a computer) for more than 20 or 30 minutes at a time, after which I need to recline or lay down for an hour or so before I can again sit in that position. I cannot stand for more than a couple of minutes, for which reason I only shower two or three times a week (it hurts to get in and out of the shower and it's excruciating to stand long enough to get clean). I also have trouble sleeping because of the pain in my back and have to take sleep medication to get any sleep at all. I take the medication between 4:00 and 6:00 PM and when I wake up, I'm drowsy and unable to function with any lucidity until about 10:00 in the morning, sometimes noon. I don't know how in the world I am expected to be able to find an employer who would hire me under those conditions. I received notice, via phone, from the Veterans Administration (on May 27, 2015) that my disability status had been moved to UNEMPLOYABLE due to my injuries. This notice was faxed immediately to Judge Condon's office on June 2 (the day I received the written notice), but it is not cited as one of the exhibits used in making his "Unfavorable" decision even though the decision was written on June 9. One would think that if the VA rates me as "Unemployable", that in itself would verify the fact that I'm disabled and can no longer work. I'm at a loss to understand the "Unfavorable" decision that has been handed down in my case. Now, after having already waited over two years to begin receiving disability, I'll have to appeal - again - and wait several more months - again - for the next step to finalize. It's very frustrating.

Remember the song "Back Stabber"? This guy "smiles in your face" and comes across real nice and sympathetic in the hearing, but is not interested in what a person has to say about how life goes. He picks and chooses what evidence he likes, and seems to think you need to be in a wheelchair, at least, to get benefits. He has no appreciation for how much pain can impact functioning. Be ready to appeal if you are unfortunate enough to be in from of him.

Bad judge. Goes out of his way to ignore claimant testimony, plays doctor in making his own medical judgments, and does not understand the nature of mental illness. No stars for him.
