Started the hearing by explaining how he could ignore any information past 2 years ago (I have several years of proof of permanent disabilities and explanations of tests/etc that show how I was diagnosed that he could then make irrelevant) and proceeded to actually yell at me about something that had nothing to do with disability. Then he dug into personal private information that had to do with my address that also had nothing to do with my disability. So if you’re under the attorney general program for a stalker, he’s going to make sure your info is now accessible. Your lawyer’s not likely to speak up because legal word of mouth is he’s bad for disability cases regardless of how obvious those disabilities are.
Kurt Ehrman completely disregarded a psychologist I saw weekly for nearly a year in favor of an SSI paid one-time psychologist review from almost two years prior. Acted like he thought he was a prosecuting attorney, but since he was also the judge could fabricate what I could and couldn’t do. I have no aid to fill out forms necessary to turn him in for obvious bias so can’t. Also worry that since he was so openly biased, he knows no lawyers will turn him in for it (the lawyers here should be ashamed for not turning him in on behalf of his clients if he treats all of us this way). He’s one of the highest-paid employees at Social Security which I think speaks for itself to anyone here who understands how corrupt SSI hearings are. He even ordered that I could drive even though it’s federally illegal for me to do so and has been for many years due to health conditions which was well covered in doctor’s notes. That was just one of the many permanent conditions he was able to ignore due to picking and choosing when he would allow proof to be presented and deciding permanent conditions could just disappear over time.
When you see all the homeless people in St. Pete and Tampa and wonder why they “won’t get a job” or assuming they’re druggies because they’re talking to themselves when they’re actually mentally ill – remember it’s judges like this that are actually the cause. Half of the reasons I was turned down were complete non-sequiturs. Not disabled because obese, not disabled because I have a social media (that I haven’t had in 2 years, anyway but no), not disabled because he decided conditions lasting over 10 years caused by temporal lobe brain damage will just disappear, not disabled because he didn’t like which medicine doctors prescribed, and described in detail how I took it (which was as prescribed) as though that proved I wasn’t disabled.
I’ve attempted suicide 3 times since this man denied me for help. I’ve had a very troubled life since he refused my help. I didn’t need the money, I just needed the financial accessibility to a doctor that could help me. Years later, I have very bad anxiety and have been diagnosed with depression. I think about death every day of my life now – and when I do, I think about this guy. My very bad anxiety problem turned into severe depression. Doctors tell me this could have been prevented if somebody simply believed me before it got worse. My life is over now. I will never be the same.
YOU DENIED MY SSD. I’M USING A WALKER TO BE ABLE TO GET AROUND. MY POWER WAS TURNED OFF FOR FOUR DAYS UNTIL I COULD BEG A FRIEND FOR HELP. I BUY FOOD WITH FOOD ASSISTANCE AKA FOOD STAMPS. I’M IN FORECLOSURE. I CAN’T WALK STAAND SIT WITHOUT ENDURING EXTREME PAIN.I’M NOT GOING TO COMMENT ANY MORE. I HOPE YOU *** ** ****…
He will NOT allow any discussion regarding allegations that are not in the record for AT LEAST 1 year. Will interrupt claimant or rep if they mention a condition that is not on his cheat sheet. So have your exhibit/page numbers ready for every condition, or expect to be ripped to shreds.
