Did you say you were in Georgia? I had my ALJ hearing in Atlanta the day before Good Friday. I received notification of a partially favorable decision in exactly 60 days. The VE also said there were jobs I could do, but admitted there were none I could do while taking my meds. The only thing the ALJ disagreed with was onset of disability. I said it was 2005, and he ordered that it was actually 2007. No big deal to me. Disabled is disabled.

I have rheumatoid autoimmune disorder, a spinal injury (with a failed lumbar spinal fusion), two knee replacements, degenerative disk disease, and chronic pain from the broken spinal hardware. I thought this would be hands-down considered a disability, but apparently only the autoimmune disorder qualifies.

Hope you have a favorable decision!

@ Jayniebeth, yes im in GA, the Alj was out of Savannah, Ga and I was in brunswick, Ga I have Severe depression, Anxiety/Panic attacks, insomnia, sleep apnea, and Migraines. I havent received a decision, but what has me puzzled is the alj said that he wouldnt count my cashiering and waitressing but he would count my nursing experience/wages!! what does that mean? the alj also asked how does my meds make me feel, and i explained they make me feel sleepy,dizzy,and tired all the time!

I think you will hear something soon holyroller. Hang tight. I know the wait can be very frustrating and it is easy for me to say this to you since I am already approved. ALJ decisions are normally issued 30-90 days after the administrative record is closed, but due to backlogs, it could take much longer.

I got approved for panic, anxiety, and depression too btw.

I called the ODAR office and the gentleman on the phone was very nice and helpful he said its being written up as of july 27th and he asked me if the SS office needed to reach me was that the correct address and phone number on file! Then at the end of the conversation he said I hope it all works out for you, and I was thinking I pray it doesSmile
