Would like tell set up a private meeting with judge PATRICK R DIGBY please!
Judge Digby gave me my life back by turning me down for disability. I suffer from mental health issues that can be easily managed by medication. Ten years ago my father (who is emotionally abusive/manipulative) bullied me into filing for SSDI during a low point in my life when my medications weren’t working. My father told me that no one with my mental health issues would be able to have a normal life. At the age of 24, I lost all hope for having a job or an education. During the SSDI process I was put on a medication that literally changed my life and basically gave me my life back.
I was VERY upset when Judge Digby turned me down for SSDI in 2012. That denial literally gave me my life back. I married a man in the Air Force a year later and I got the opportunity to live in South Korea for two years. I earned an Associate of Science in Accounting in 2016, a Bachelor of Arts in Transportation and Logistics Management in 2019 and I am currently working on a Master of Arts in Supply Chain Management. I really don’t know what I am going to do next but I am seriously thinking about applying to a hybrid law school program at either Dayton or Syracuse. I would like to represent mentally ill defendants in criminal cases.
I really hope that Judge Digby sees this and understands that his denial really helped someone. I am so grateful that my case was adjudicated by him and he made the right decision for me in the long run. My father STILL likes to try to bully me into applying for disability because he doesn’t believe that people with mental illnesses have the “right” to have jobs and live normal lives. Fortunately I relocated 12 hours from him when my husband retired from the Air Force.
Actively seeks ways to deny a claim.
Had my hearing over 3 months ago and still no decision. Judges please understand that we still have bills coming in and kids to feed. For those of us who HONESTLY can not work, this is NOT where we want to be in life but there is nothing we can do about it but wait on you to decide our fate.
Had a hearing almost 3 months ago. Still no decision. Wondering what’s going on.
Tough but fair!
