Based on his opinion he denied me because of my age, stating I'm 44 and can bounce back. My doctors all signed off for my disability and I still was denied, maybe judge Lang should get off the bench and retire cause he's hurting people more so than helping them. In my deniel letter it also stated I have a email address so I'm able to communicate, I had a email address long before I got sick so that shouldn't make a difference at all!!

This judge is a true jerk. I was denied because in my medical records he saw on one of office visit notes where I had discussed with my rheumatologist that I had gone a cruise with my family and how bad I felt on the trip and how bad I hurt and all I wanted to do was sleep and the doctor had increased my med at that visit. He also denied me because I was told to go to the gym and stretch and move by my doctor. What am I suppose to do just sit in a recliner all day or stay in bed????? If I had been denied based on the reports from several doctors that would be one thing but he denied me based in his opinion!!!!!

Out of line, abuses power, demeaning, ignores attorneys and reams of legitimate records,takes away hope, why would an applicant who has worked for 30+ years seek to live on $700/mo? To wait 2 years for a hearing only to be told one can sort limes on a processing line part time? Anyone have such a job for 20 minute shifts? No wonder there is such a high suicide rate for those that become disabled after long careers.

It is a very shallow statement to state that a person who can go to school is not disabled. There are many people that are born with disabilities or become disabled in life, yet they are offered extra help to go to school and grants are offered to disabled people to go to secondary school. I have rheumatoid arthritis, a lung condition related to the R.A., and a heart condition, and I receive disability because I am no longer able to perform the type of work I did before my diagnosis. I am now in college and seeking a degree in psychology so that I can one day return to work and no longer have to depend on disability. Yes, I do have to take small class loads and I have to inform my instructors of my condition, and at times get extended time some of my work, but I am sure trying. Just because a person becomes disabled does not mean they should have to sit and stare at walls and depend on $700 a month income; they have every right to improve their education, thus giving them a chance to improve their choices for work opportunity and not have to live the rest of their life drawing a disability check. The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) passed in 1975 and the Americans with Disabilities Act both offer help in education for those who are disabled; yes, the government does recognize that a person can be disabled, yet go to school.

If you can go to school, you are not disabled

MR JERRY LANG IS A JERK. NO ONE LIKES HIM AND HE DENIES MORE THAN 70% OF THE CASES HE HEARS. BACK IN 2006 WHEN I HAD MY FIRST CASE HEARD IN HIS LITTLE COURTROOM, HE AWARDED ME WITH A CLOSED PERIOD SETTLEMENT. HE STATED THAT AFTER MY 1ST BACK SURGERY THAT I COULD RETURN TO WORK, UNFORTUNENTLY THE PROBLEM IS, MY MEDICAL ISSUES CONTINUED TO DECLINE AND WHEN I SAW HIM AGAIN IN 2009, I NEEDED A 2ND BACK SURGERY AND I HAD ADDITIONAL MEDICAL ISSUES IN ADDITION TO WHAT I ALREADY WAS DEALING WITH. NOT ONLY DID HE DENY ME AN AWARD FOR MY 2ND HEARING VIA TELECONFERENCE BUT HE DID SO WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HAVING MORE MEDICAL ISSUES AND ACCEPTED THE FACT THAT I WAS DISABLED FOR A PERIOD OF 3 YEARS BECAUSE HE GAVE ME A CLOSED PERIOD AWARD. SO YOU TELL ME, 1ST TIME CLOSED AWARD, 2ND TIME THINGS ARE WORSE AND I AM DENIED. THAT MAKES NO SESNE. JUST LAST WEEK, 02/19/2013, I WENT BACK TO DYERSBURG TO SEE A DIFFERENT ALJ BUT THAT MAN CALLED IN SICK AND GUESS WHO I WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE? MR JERRY LANG AKA: JERK! SO IVE HAD 2 BACK SURGERIES NOT TO MENTION MENTAL ISSUES AND A BLOOD CLOT WHEREAS I HAVE LIFE LONG DEBILITATING NEGATIVE ISSUES AS A RESULT. WHEN I FOUND OUT WHO WAS GOIN TO HEAR MY CASE, I JUST DISMISSED IT. IT WOULD BE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME BECAUSE WE ALREADY KNKOW HOW THE MAN OPERATES. IM GOING TO MOVE TO ANOTHER STATE AND IF NOT, THEN ANOTHER COUNTY FAR FROM ALJ JERRY LANG. I HOPE THIS MAN SUFFERS SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE FROM CHRONIC PAIN, THEN AND ONLY THEN HE WILL UNDERSTAND. IT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER IF HE JUST COMMITED SUICIDE AND SAVED THE TAX PAYERS MONEY AND SAVERD ALL THE MANY PPL THAT NEED DISABILITY TO BEABLE TO HAVE SOME FORM OF QUALITY OF LIFE. MY NAME IS JIMMY BECK FROM DRESDEN TN AND I APPROVE THIS MSG. IF ANYONE HAS AN IDEA HOW TO GET AROUND CRUEL JUDGES THAT SEEM TO ENJOY TORTURING INNOCENT INJURED INDIVIDUALS, THEN BY ALL MEANS SHOOT ME A EMAIL EMAIL: STUCKNCA@YAHOO.COM

It appears that this is one tough judge. I just had my case reviewed by Mr.Lang; I'm worried that because I'm trying to go back to school so that someday I don't have to depend on disability, this will ruin my case. If I lose my case, I don't stand a chance of finishing school because of our financial situation. Please, if anyone has a story to share about their case, I would love to hear about it.
