    It took Judge Goodale eight months to render my decision. Even though I have two conditions on the disability list that should have been favorable (Lupus and Lumbar Stenosis)- Not to mention I applied when I had cervical stenosis which ended up in emergency surgery and over a year to recover. The surgery left with loss of mobility in my neck…nerve damage in my hands, feet, chest and neck. I have extreme trouble walking, standing and sitting. I worked my whole life and every weeks the system took money from my pay and sent me notices stating if I ever became disabled this money taken out of my pay – well this was the reason. They don’t tell you how you have to fight for it- or they twist things to make it work in the state’s favor. I am not any never have been addicted to drugs, I am just shy of 50 years old, I speak English and I have worked very hard to put myself through a few college classes….These things worked against me. What a twisted system. I am disappointed and disgusted by Judge Paul Goodale who failed a human being in need- One who has done nothing but the right things in life- Perhaps, if the judge spent one day in my shoes or was inside my head to know the despair… his decision would not be the injustice he served.

    I’ve had debilitating major depression disorder for many years, I was told at my hearing nov 2015 I would have a answer by 30 to 60 days. I explained I’m homeless, have been searching for a couch almost every night. I am clean and sober for 3 and a half years and have still been optimistic that the judge would understand under such dress I am grateful for my clean time, and proud. He did make a comment that “the state doesn’t reward drug addiction” I again agreed that was fine and again, said I was clean and sober. It’s very easy to right off a CLEAN addict.. I thought the comment was continued to answer all the answers In a truthful manner, I thought I was well put together for no representation. I am still couch hoping and just had a hysterectomy, I am currently recouping at my abusive xhusband, and have major depression and anxiety all day,do the want to upset him. Sat night I said something and was Pushed and screamed at while his spit hit my face, his fingernail cut into my cheek. He proceeded to scream I am a ĺooser, who doesn’t want to work. Told me to “get the expletives out” I moved the few things from the house ripping my stitches, and was told to stop being dramatic. This is just a sample of what I’ve had to endure waiting for a judge to set me free from this hell..as of today, I was denied after explaining my once a week inquiry, that I had to explain again, my dire situation, and my depression was at its worst and really needed a reply..finally 4 mo later, today was told I’m denied. I would never wish anyone the personal hell of panic attacos at any moment,and the depression that keeps me up for days and non able to work. I don’t know what is next. I’m feeling hopeless and wish I had a judge that cares about people. I wish I was not around to feel the latest hit..thank you for not having a pulse to the sickness of major depressive disorder. I’m beyond crushed at my one light of help is written off as not his problem.
