    I just went through my appeals process at the ODAR office and was denied. I have two auto immune diseases and the judge has denied me. I find it very sad to think the judge denies people who actually need it, yet gives people disability that does not deserve it. I worked for my money and now that I need it I can’t have.

    Gee, do I say thank you Judge Paul for denying me and now I am going to lose everything. Who are you to say a person can work 8 hrs a day or anything else for that matter. You don’t live with them.

    You get a healthy paycheck every week so what do you care what anyone else goes through.

    Thanks for nothing.

    The WORST judge I have ever had the experience of meeting. I have an eye missing, fibromyalgia that was confirmed by a rheumatologist, neurologist, 2 pain clinic specialists and my PCP. I had my psychotherapist write a detailed evaluation of my anxiety and depression problems, and I have 2 herniated discs and chronic insomnia. The judge denied me in Jan. of 2012. We appealed it and two judges remanded the case back to the same judge for not giving enough weight to a couple of doctors. I had my second hearing on Jun. 4th, 2013 and 24 days later, the same judge denied me again because I did not have one or more illnesses that were termed disabled. My PCP even wrote a letter that stated that I was in no shape both physically and mentally to assume a 40 hour/wk job and there were no questions asked of the vocational expert that was present. I believe the judge did not like the other Appeals judges disagreeing of his handling of my first hearing and thus denied my second appeal. I rate this judge along with Merrill and Levin. I will appeal this again to the Appeals Council and I hope this time they will approve it instead of making me proceed to the Federal Court. I’ve waited 3 and a half years for this whole process and it has gotten me nowhere.
