Newbie On the SS forum
I found BT now NT several years ago from clicking on webmd forums. I am usually on the Thoracic Outlet Syndrome NT forum.
My California attorney called me Monday saying "things have dramatically changed with SSDI. We cannot use RSD (?)" Geeze, now what kind of state judge will understand TOS is my BIG question? Hearing Nov 10th. He leaves me to get piles of patient records from my docs within a week so the judge has all the info ahead of time (like he's gonna read my 2 drawer file cabinet). He's had my case for what 3 years now? This means using my arms, the stress put upon us patients & then changes the 15% retainer fee signed document to 25% cause the SOCIAL SECURTY ADMIN passed a law in June stating attorneys can charge up tp 25% now. It just goes on. As the 3 cases come to fruition will I have peace to concentrate on just my medical care.
CalPers retirement disability case overwhelmingly ruled in my favor last year. Took CalPers 6 months to create the necessary paperwork & apply my ins. $20k to defend my retirement which is only a small monthly allowance & my medical ins which is why we fought for since I had no ins since 2004. All this when the university would not conform to my surgeons recommened physical limitations. Therefore I lost my job, my career. I have worked so hard all my life & go thru all this "ish" is insane for a true injured worker.
I realize everyone goes thru the same crappy standards. It plays much more physical, financial & emotional demands on the patient causing more pain. We are indebt 60K & have lost over 700k in wages the last 11 years.
THANK YOU for letting me vent!
