My appt was for 10:30a, was told to be there by 10a (was there by 9:45);
Their computers were down, so everyone (all cases) were running behind.
We got in bout 11:30am; Just before we went into chambers, the judges assistant/court reporter came out and was wanting some records the judge didn't think he had from my GP. She made copies, then came back for soem OTHER records from the same GP he didn't think he had. My atty thought this was good (as we waited out side the room) that the judge was thoroughly going thru stuff before we got in there.
Then we went in. Atty asked up front that the records remain open until a doctor I had seen last week gets his report in. Judge agreed. Then I was sworn in by the judge. Now on the record: Atty asked me all these questions about my issues, restrictions; some discussion about my termination pay. Atty was done. Judge looked right at me and said you are very credible and I deem you disabled.
Just like that. (I almost asked him to repeat what he just said. but didn't. )
We left the room & walked outside; Atty gave me my records and said I would be hearing from SS in a few weeks to set up my auto deposit etc. My on set was not questioned nor was my termination pay.
I hugged my atty as I broke down crying. Drove home - couldn't find a darn person to answer their dang phone on my drive home.. So ya'll were the first to know.
I'm so relieved ----------------------
I feel like I can breathe again
