I have had my case denied thrice by social security, and after two appeals had a judge turn my case down. The case was then sent after my third appeal to a review board who remanded the case back to the judge for a second look. This occured on July 13. Today, August 30, I STILL have yet to have a hearing date. I dont know what to do! I can not work. I suffer from relentless fatigue, an itchy/painful rash, and brain foggy memory loss and concentration problem. I hope to recover following the 12 month "Road to Recovery" program through the Chronic Fatigue Treatment Center closest to me. I can not do this if I am living off of a low wage job which can NOT pay for insurance to take care of these treatments, and organic food/supplements. I will also need to get an apartment so I can guarentee that I can get all the sleep I need, in a quiet atmosphere. I also need a cell phone and car/car insurance to be in touch with doctors and get to my appointments. My 2 year backpay and general monhtly social security benefits should be able to cover this. I also dont want to KEEP myself sick. Somedays I am so tired that I could stay in bed all day. I am afraid of keeping myself sick by having to get up at a certain time, staying at work a certain length of time, and doing work which will keep me sick. I can NOT lose this case. However, $2000 dollars in debt, and four collection agencies later, I need money. I do NOT have any money, assetts, or any source of income. I am surviving off of the good will of friends when it comes to food and shelter. I have been waiting too long. I MAY have a job offer, and if it comes through, I will begin work in a week or so. I dont expect it to go far, and even if I CAN perform the tasks needed, im afraid of simply (it's minimum wage) not being able to afford to get well. I am afraid of taking the job, and whatever else may come, and the judge then THROWING OUT THE CASE if he thinks I can work. Does anyone here have ANY experience in this? Legal advice? General advice? Thank you for your help!
