Judge John Dowling as well as all the disability judges are just doing there job and if you have the medical records and open and honest you will get the approval. They are only following the guidelines they have to go by. My Mom been through this process and had been denied and it is heartbreaking when you honestly know that you are unable to work.. She had an attorney and unfortunaly she was of no help to my mother. Deadlines were not met and I as well as my Mother felt we had all the evidenve needed and the attorney told my mother to relax and that I was going to be approved. I asked but what if she is not approved in which she stated we would take it to another level. Several months passed and a denial was issued and need less to say she billed me and did not even offer to help appeal. Long sory short my mother wasnt prepared by the questions she was asked and when asked what she did all day she felt embarrassed to tell him she was ill so often and in bed 90 percent of the day so she said she watched a little tv and at the time I was only 13 and my Mom was afraid to lose me because i am all she has. That was the big mistake but I was just fine and worried about my Mother. I was hurt for her and I was just fine as I understood she was not in good shape at all. I was thankful I had my Grandpa close and he was always there for me at the drop of a pin. Mom was found able to work because of my past jobs and not telling about my actual limitations and how much she was struggling and she was always a hard worker but with her severe lung disorders as well as chronic pain and ongoing infections and dealing with sickness at least 3 times a week. I would ache for her because she reallly was so limited but would force herself to take a bath at least once a week and she could prepare small meals but some days she was so weak and lucky to make it to the bathroom without falling in which happen more than she says. John Dowling was such a great listener and she let him know the actual ability of what her day consisted of and finally recieved a fully favorable decison.. I believe if you are truely honest and disabled with medical evidence you will win. Thank you Judge Dowling for making my Mom feel comfortable at the hearing and you know your job well. My Mom said she didnt even break down and that made me smile becasue its depressing seeing her depressed and struggling. She is a Christian and she said she beleived she had the med evidence but you were the one that helped and God bless you and know that you are appeciated and without an attorney you stated she would be fine when she told you of her past experience. Thanks again. I honestly believe it that so many people are not deserving or looking for a free ride. Too many crazies and it makes me sick. Crazy people can work as I have seen some disabled suppposed to bes and its ruining for ones who do need.

This man is brute because he reported that i was not disabled because I had a Facebook account and could use a computer how in the world did he know that and did he have a computer hacker to hack my Facebook account? not cool in my book, I am disabled, what right does he have to say that I am not, does he feel pain of every minute of his life like I do, has he been raped in a motel for 48 hours, I think not he has no idea of what I have been through, for gods sake i have ptsd because of it!! I had a good job before my rapes, abuse etc I have a college degree and I can't get a job, at my age I should at least get ssi to help with my utility bills..Whatever, John, come rub my neck at night because i sure can't afford a massage therapist,
