Re: My Hearing lasted ..
Your question sounded exactly like what happened to me 2 years ago. I was called in for my first hearing with the ALJ, the vocational guy that was in there seemed so helpful, and answered all the questions about me working with a no. My lawyer and I both thought that was a good sign, two weeks later I get a letter in the mail telling me I was turned down. I'm not trying to discourage you, but I wondered after that happened why the judge didn't listen to the vocational guy. And you know the funny thing, when I went back for my second hearing last week and was approved, it was the same judge and the very same vacational guy from 2 years ago. And I was approved this time! Go figure!!
Good Luck!! Patti in SC
