Hi Sheri, that is definitely a bummer, being turned down. It seems so much is needed to get disability, hope that things will start turning around for you, very soon, hugs Iris. :grouphug: :flower:

I am sorry about your SS denial. I, too, am awaiting any day for my SS decision in the mail. And, from the majority of people I see here on the boards, am not expecting anything but a denial letter. It is always the "hurry up and wait" game and then the "big moment" finally arrives to know that this is still yet another battle to have to fight. I don't know about everyone else...I stay so tired all the time and the mental and emotional beatings we get from having to fight for EVERYTHING really wares on us and our health. Hope you will appeal the decision though, and not give up. Some things are worth fighting for and our physical, mental and emotional health has to be our focus.
Hang in there and don't give up!
Can you e-mail me the articles that you are talking about on IC? The only thing that I sent to SS regarding IC info is the SS disability ruling with a letter from the ICA. If you could PLEASE e-mail it to me @ email@example.com, I would appreciate it. I have a strange feeling I will need whatever additional info I can get my hands as I'M QUITE SURE by the success (or should I say lack thereof) for IC applicants on the first go around has not been too promising! My SS medical examiner told me that they had received everything and would be sending for medical review and that I should have an answer by the end of next week. Thanks a million!

From what I have read, nearly everyone is refused on the first try. Definitely appeal the decision.
I think they deny claims to discourage people, which I think is a rotten way to save money.
Warm encouraging hugs,

Thank you all so very much for your kind words and encouragement. I will appeal at sometime, but to tell you the truth, I don't have any fight in me right now. Hope you all are doing well, and enjoying these last weeks of summer. Love and best wishes to you all! Sheri G :kiss:

:angel: [B]Sheri keep your head up I had been fighting with SSD since 2002 I was approved after my ALF hearing which is the first step outside of the ssd.
Get a lawyer if you want but I didnt and was approved after ALJ hearing and didnt have to lose 25%:) as a matter of fact when the ALJ ask me if I was represented I said no and with all the suits out there in the waiting room I bet you think I foolish for not have one,he said no I think your smart my decision would be the same with or without a lawyer sitting next to me.
If rejected I was going to get a lawyer for my appeal,thanks God I didnt have too:)
Sending you warm thoughts

So sorry you're having such a hard time.I,too am in the process of appeal and it is almost too much too handle.I can't stay awake and alert long enough to get my thoughts together to do the paperwork.Not even sure what I should send.Trying to get letters from URO,but they are so evasive about writing a stupid letter.Have ordered ICA packet.Brat,is there any possibility you could email that info,too?Email is firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks and everybody try to hang in there.I have to remind myself every minute not to give up!

So sorry you got turned down. I went for my mental exam Aug 30 & I go for my medical exam this Thurs (9th). Like most, I will probably get turned down the 1st time & have to appeal. It is rough here too trying to pay for the medical bills coming in & my job was what was paying them. Grrrrrrr
Brat I would like the info you have also, I will need it I'm sure. You can email them to email@example.com Thanks
Hang in there & stick to your guns. Thoughts & prayers coming your way.

Hi everybody. I am kinda new here but I want to encourage everyone to fight, fight, and keep fighting for your disability. I know it is very hard but please try to take it one day at a time, make sure you have all your proper medical documentation which needs to include dates of appointments, detailed treatments you have had, and any objective info the uro or other docs can provide. I used my bladder pics which are a disaster area! I also had 3 docs who said there was no way in heck I could work at all. Have your uros state what your bladder capacity is, have them compare it to normal bladder capacity. This is like a lab report and disability likes those as they are objective. Prove that since your tiny, torn up bladder can't hold much urine that you always have to pee! Have your family write letters saying how your disease has affected your life and theirs too. Describe in detail what you do during the day (or don't do) Keep times of when you have to pee, and how hard it is to do that and how much time it takes sometimes, to get any pee out at all! Have your doctor write in his letter how badly sleep deprivation is messing up your life. How can one work and be expected to concentrate when one has peed 20 times the night before? Have your doc explain what the side effects of the drugs are doing to you. I have had SSD for 10 years now and I got it at a time when they still didn't really consider this much of a disease, yeah, right!! Alas, I was a teacher and it broke my heart to have to give up my job. Now, 2004, and I still have my SS but my private disability company just dumped me so I am also fighting this mess. Very hard to do when one is so sick. But, if any of you need advice on exactly what SS is looking for, you may contact me, I have been there and am going through something similar now. Good luck to you all and I hope that you find your way, thanks, Meg

Brat....may I also have copies of the articles you were takling about? MegFezziwig@webtv.net
I only know of 1 person who has gotten approved on their first try so PLEASE don't drag your feet. No matter how overwhelming it is, start the process. Everytime one of us wins, 10 win because we are being recognized so a win for you is a win for US.......
tons of hugs~
