    I find listing Pros and Cons from my perspective as the easiest way to get a “review” across so I don’t ramble for 1500 characters so here we go.

    Pros:

    •Judge Adams was extremely nice, even I felt slightly comfortable talking around her and that’s usually something I don’t do. It’s a high stress situation and while I wasn’t comfortable by any means her respectfulness made the hearing not that bad

    •I didn’t feel rushed, did I get everything out I wanted to say? No, but that was no fault of hers. You can write things down, practice speeches but you’ll always forget something.

    Cons:

    •Let’s face it. Would I be here if I was approved? Probably not.

    •If my medical file was reviewed like it’s supposed to be reviewed why wouldn’t the odd appointments presented in the findings be brought up during the hearing? If you understood mental health you’d realize that if I’m not compatible with a therapist then you’d realize I’d be too anxious to ask to be moved to a different therapist and I wouldn’t be truthful to them. This is the reasoning for certain appointments in my file showing that “I was better”. This 110% should have been brought up during the hearing because I didn’t realize this false information was a contributor to my decision.

    •How can one government agency declare I’m unemployable due to my disabilities and declare it’s total and permanent with little to no chance of improving anytime in the future and then be told by the same government that I can work? I have a 100% disability rating from the VA solely based on the fact that I am unemployable. It’s completely contradicting.

    •Further evidence Judge Adams isn’t well versed in mental health. Cleaning, cooking and laundry in the privacy of my own home isn’t even comparable to going out and socializing with other people, this 100% shouldn’t have been a contributing factor to my denial.

    •Judge Adams I know you probably can’t reverse your decision and you probably will never read this but I just wanted to tell you that you’ve made a mistake. Im not sitting at home not working because I’m bored, I’m sitting at home in my own little prison because my mind won’t let me do the things that a normal person can. I mow my grass because it’s my responsibility and I have to time it when there’s a smaller chance for people to be home.

    Before I check my own mailbox I watch to make sure nobody is around. If neighbors are on the porch I go back inside and try again later. If a neighbor is getting in their car I wait for them to leave before checking the mail to avoid them.

    Those two examples are just some of the hundreds of things I do to try and feel not so scared of everyone and everything. I thank you for the opportunity to state my case both in the hearing and here and I urge you to try and make this right.

    Judge Adams, showed that she doesn’t understand that what one person disability causes may differ from another. I have serve multiple sclerosis and epilepsy seizure disorders unable to manage my own personal care most of the time and I was denied 4 times.
    I’m still in the process of trying to get my disability.
