    As Far as his professional, I was leaft hopeful that he understood. I was clearly wrong. When the Doctor they deal with on the issue, states I cant work a full time position in telecommunications sales, that I would need to have my feet above my head, and that I would not be able to hold or keep a job, from a continued time off due to me not being able to be there at work. I would not be able to keep a job. The Doctor said no. I am put in a destitute position. I have no job, I will soon lose the phone, and soon be on the streets. My living situation is dyer. the house I live in has bed bug infestation, I cant get rid off and I have no where to go. this has been a almost 3 year ordeal. I have had to do yet another appeal that honestly I am appalled. I lost my car, it was repossessed, I have to pay for all my doctors visits out of pocket, that with me not being insured, due to me not being able to afford it. I was not making enough to do anything as far as survive. I find it sad that for me to continue with this process, I will need to continue to see a DR. I cant see now due to no job and income, and due to me having a $1700.00 hospital bill that I cant pay from 2 years ago, I wont be able to be seen there, they are for profit. the 2 jobs they say I could work, are jobs I was racially done wrong by. The thought that I could get back with them? Really. I wonder how Mr. Pilkey would feel, if he was put in the position he has now placed me. maybe it’s an oppress the black man thing? I went on the internet to see if there were any jobs, and even the one’s I had prior time with and me knowing clearly what they have as there expectations as for what I would need to do I won’t be able. why I would have to go through this, stress’s me. I stay 20 miles at this point from any bus line, and with no car I clearly can’t walk. This has been a awful. experience and unfair.

    I had my hearing with Judge Pilkay. He was fair and he listened to me. He was signing when I went into the courtroom. He said some hippy thing while I was testifying. He kinda looked like Robert Redford in the good days. He has a really pretty singing voice too. I think maybe he was a country singer or something? He kept talking about bigfoot too. But I liked him and he made it real easy.

    I had my hearing 15 days ago and am waiting for decision. Judge Pilkey seemed to listen to me, was aware of my medical records and professional. It is hard to wait but hoping for approval, but …. mentally trying to be prepared either way.

  6. Disabled and not appoved says:

    I have suffered for years with various conditions and I poured my heart out to him. I felt he was very understanding and felt my pain. Thought I was finally going to get help this time but didn’t happen. I’m very disappointed in his “Unfavorable Decision” for my last hearing. I cannot work and hadn’t worked for years now. I have multiple places I go for medical help but obviously it wasn’t enough. Conditions I have are approvable under the Disability act. The vocational advocate played a huge roll in my denial I think as she believes everyone can work, no matter their medical conditions. I would much rather be able to work and have money and insurance than to have to depend on family and friends to help me when they can. I guess you have to be on your deathbed in order to get approved. I have been denied for years but I am not gonna appeal his decision as you have to wait two years to get another denial from Falls Church, Va. I am disabled and I will continue to refile new applications til I get approved or die,,whichever comes first. Although, I have had friends who have died while awaiting a decision. This is uncall for. How is one suppose to live during such a long process? I need medical help and because I have no insurance, I can’t get help. Any solutions?

    Reasonable, nothing tricky about him. Straightforward, but does not accept BS. Good judge.
