I think my case was pretty complex and unique. Kathleen was fair to me. Before the hearing, I honestly didn’t expect to be approved, despite having a talented attorney, because mental issues are relatively difficult to prove, plus her rate of approval is low. However, I left the hearing with a glimmer of hope because I felt like she asked almost all of the relevant questions, along with my attorney and the vocational expert, and I just answered honestly and to the point. I even got emotional about some horrible memories, so I think that helped. The hearing lasted a little more than an hour. Kathleen kept her distance emotionally, just trying to be unbiased, but she wasn’t mean. After reading her letter of approval a few weeks afterwards, I could tell that she really cared and tried to imagine what it’s like to walk in my shoes. I do believe that justice was finally done for me. It’s been a very long, very difficult struggle, but hopefully someday I will be able to re-enter the workforce.
I’m sorry I wasn’t cursing during the hearing. Perhaps this will help you icy stone cold rude ass bitch !! You’re a fucking moron! Incompetent rude, you should get new glasses because you obviously don’t know how to read documents you fucking cunt. You ruined my whole life I wasted 2 years waiting waiting waiting and I got you to fuck my life up. Thank you. Doctors spend their time treating me like everything’s in my head because I have mental issues so I can’t get proper treatment because everything’s in my head according to them. And you you should send them a letter because according to you I’m perfectly fucking sane. You’re supposed to be a judge, you’re not you’re a prosecutor and you’re fucking crooked, I didn’t file for physical problems I filed for agoraphobia and PTSD which I have you fucking bitch. It’s all documented. It’s been documented since 2016. I know it was I talked about it with my doctor back then he was the one that diagnosed me with PTSD and agoraphobia. My attorney told me that I should be doing therapy everyday that’s why I went into group therapy and I hated it and I hardly slept the whole time and I finally get to stop it. The system isn’t to help people, you’re not about helping people it’s about ruining people. Your name is proper judge Winters because you’re icy cold bitch
Not a judge, more likely prosecutor.
Denied PTSD disability based off of information not related to case. Reasons: wasn’t ranting foaming at the mouth, no messy hair, wasn’t spouting profanity during hearing. Social security failed to pull up all of my documented history. Wasn’t allowed to speak about all of my history. This “Judge” has the lowest passing rate in the state. If you get sentenced to this judge cancel and get another one. Social security asked for witnesses which she found not credible, when it was social security who asked for them. I have doctor certified for years that I have PTSD. I can’t work now what am I going to do. Flawed system. Received 10 page reasons why I wasn’t passed, most were incorrect, chronologically out of order that made no sense. Gave reasons for denying my case for canceling a visit to a gastrointestinologist that had nothing to do with the case. I wasn’t filing for Digestive problems. I was bullied for 6 years on the job that gave me PTSD only to file for disability and after nearly 2 years get bullied at my hearing without a chance to say a thing. Thank you judge Winters for helping to ruin my life. I have nothing now.
I got a bench decision yesterday. One of the nicest Judges I have ever met. Changed onset date and approved me at hearing. GOD Bless You Judge Winters for making my life better. Thank You From the Bottom of My Heart.
