Yesterday was my disability hearing before the Administrative Law Judge regarding my case. If he finds in my favor, I will finally begin to start receiving Social Security Disability. I answered a lot of questions as to the pain I am in daily, how my life has changed since March 25, 2010 when I was put on medical leave by the district, what I can and can not do, and a host of other stuff. I did have to explain in detail what I actually did for the school district when I was employed as the vocational rehab specialist that was there described me doing far different work than I actually did.
I had to be there an hour early for security procedures and to meet with my attorney. The hearing started late. So it was an hour of drive time down, an hour plus of sitting in some of the most painful chairs ever designed by mankind, nearly an hour for the hearing and another hour for the drive home.All of that did a real number on me. The good thing is I didn't embarrass myself by falling though as things went on I was more and more unstable on my feet even with my cane.
It went as well as could be expected, I guess. The whole process yesterday during the hearing was confusing and I didn't understand part of what went on. I still don't so hopefully my attorney from Binder & Binder and I did the right things. His decision won't be issued for three to six months so the wait will continue.
