I'm in Oregon. I filed 2 years ago, have had 2 denials and am waiting for my hearing. My representative says Oregon isn't as bad as some states, but it sure feels like it's taking a long time!

I live in Oregon. I applied for SSD because I have lupus and I couldn't work anymore. I filed June/08 and was denied Oct./08 appealed with a lawyer and was approved Feb.09.

I wrote to my Congressman and governor and anybody else I could think of. I even found my case worker's email address and sent her emails almost everyday. Letting her know my family was going without food. Letting her know I couldn't get my Rx's with no money. I couldn't go to the doctors because I had no money for gas. And so on.

I think everyone was tired of me and just gave in!!!
