    If your case involves mental health problems, including PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Anxiety, Depression, it will be a very tough battle to fight. Mental health is still overlooked, underappreciated, and not really taken too seriously, even though the suicide rate has alarmingly increased. The Social Security system needs to take a look at the severity of mental health, and start giving it the time and energy that it deserves. Mental health destroys and takes lives every single day. Some of it is not as visible as physical illness, but that does not and should not discount the severity of mental health / brain diseases.

    I went to my hearing before ALJ Statum. I was given a CD to review and see if all my medical records are on it. I mentioned to the ALJ Statum that some important records are missing, including my current treatment. The ALJ promised that those records will be obtained before she delivers her decision, which she said will be in 2 months. Almost 5 months after my hearing, I receive a denial decision. After reading through the entire decision, I realize that ALJ Statum never ordered my current / recent medical records as promised in the hearing. She states “Claimant has not had any treatment recently, and she does not take any medications”, which is completely false. I am in limbo and under tons of stress as I am looking for a representative to help me file for an appeal!!! I am totally devastated!
