Margaret Craig will see through the outdated VE -- Vocational Experts opinion on what jobs I can do in the national economy. ODOT is outdated since 1991 a new OIS to be used in 2020. In a previous post I mention I have tremors... I wouldn't be able to do this because it requires me to use my hands to place a mark, a price on boxes, etc. The way I shake there is no telling where that marker/price will end up!!!

Judge Margaret Craig --- she seemed to be firm, understanding, and compassionate with a no nonsense approach. But, I will appeal if not approved. I went to the SSA offce to get a CD of my case. 1. There are medical records in my CD that belong to a male. 2. The recorded report list my condition as trimmers? I have Tremors, not something you cut a bush with. 3. There are errors in what I responded to the judge. 4. There are duplicate medical records which will make it more time consuming for the judge to view my case. 5. I should have viewed the CD before the hearing and corrected mistakes that I could. But, I thought the Attorney's assistant did this. My mistake!!! 6. If I did not speak English the grid rules would have already found me disabled. The Penalty for being an American and paying SS taxes since I was 18. I am 52 and my main disabilities are essential tremors and severe migraines. I feel both my upper arms not being able to do simple task, meet the listing for Parkinson's. I can not type or write. I use a mic voice recorder to type, and go back and correct errors slowly and frustratingly. I was on FMLA for my migraines before leaving my last job. The manager found ways to make my job more stressful because of the fmla. The evaluations from my job are included in my case showing I have difficulty with supervisors. But, it's the other way around the Supervisors have difficulty understanding my set backs and cause me to lash out. Forcing me to quit. This was my last hope. I can't even fill out an application and yes for the type of lower wage job that I would qualify for they have paper applications still. I believe this judge asked many of the right questions. The RFC isn't accurate that was applied. Lift 20 pounds occasionally 10 pounds constantly. Never, I have fibromyalgia too and yes I would struggle to lift the weight she specified, but the next few days I wouldn't be able to move or allow anyone to touch me. I believe eventually the whole picture of my disabled life will be seen in those records with what I explained to Judge Margaret Craig. You'd be lucky to get her in my opinion.

Judge Magaret Craig seemed to be a very nice and polite judge. I felt at ease with her. I feel the hearing went smooth but you never know!! So now I'm only awaiting a decision which should be made in 2 weeks. I still believe she was an awesome judge regardless of the decision she makes on my case.

I really felt comfortable with this judge. My lawyer on the other had was terrible, spoke to him only time for 3 minutes before we went in and he did not give some of my medical records to the judge until morning of hearing. I have tests my docters want to do but cant afford them due to all the money spent getting my medical records. It is hard for a judge to do thier job if the lawyer doesnt do his. Now ii have to wait until Nov. For another hearing. I want my spouse to be able to go in there with me because i just cant remember things and my lawyer didnt help at all. I told my lawyer i need to put my feet up cause i felt i will pass out-nope. Well after hearing passed out, my spouse got me in a chair by hisself. It gets me upset the government is paying for college, but i am not old enough for home care. At this point its a desition between bills/food and docts/medicine. I dont want to die and my husband everyday wonders if today is the day. HELP
