ALJ hearing next week

Hey everybody, I have my 2nd ALJ hearing coming up at the end of next week. It's actually being called a Supplemental hearing to the first one. I'm getting so very nervous. I did speak to my attorney and he advised it will be the same as the 1st one, only probably quicker. However, the judge only asked for a VE at 1st hearing. This time he has requested VE and Medical Expert. I feel like going in there, he's already trying to set me up for a denial. Kinda confused why the Medical Expert is needed after all my records, and the consultative exam they sent me to. Also I'm afraid I might answer a question slightly different than I did last time (my memory isn't the best), which will make the judge think I'm uncredible. Basically I'm just all around worried and am hoping for some support here. Thanks everybody

Re: ALJ hearing next week

Ditto to what Mscat said PME. You have been thru quite a lot. I hope you are found fully favorable at the supplemental. I have been following your case. How long has it been now since you initially applied?

I initially applied June 2009 and was denied 3 months later. There is no reconsideration phase in Missouri so went straight to ALJ hearing wait. Had my hearing February this year, then the judge ordered a consultative exam in May. Then heard nothing until recently when a supplemental hearing was scheduled for Dec 2nd. Whew! Sure hope it's over soon. My attorney seems to think I meet a listing, but then most of us do right?

Re: ALJ hearing next week

I hope things go well. Its ok if your answers are a little different than the first time as you are human and you remember less and differently as time passes. Also I have read that sometimes an ME is brought in just to help the judge clarify some things in your file so they can make the correct decision. It is not always a ploy to go against you. Just hope for the best and listen to the lawyer and answer to the best of your ability.

Re: ALJ hearing next week

It is normal to not remember things perfectly; just remember the judge probably sees thousands of cases- people with very faulty memories as well as a lack of awareness that credibility is even important. Just do your best, that is all you can do, we are rooting for you pme to get a favorable decision soon.

I hope the CE exam went well for you, pme. It seems like they are puttig a lot of weight on that. Meeting a listing is a good thing, but then they will go by the severity of the condition and if it effects you from working a SGA.

Thanks mscat40. I got a copy of the CE report from my attorney, and it did seem like it was favorable for me. I'll report back after my hearing
