Wow! I am so glad that is over! It has been a very stressful 1 1/2 years and now I feel relieved. My lawyer feels sure that I will be approved. The judge I had was extremely nice and I feel very fortunate to have had someone who is compassionate, understanding and believes that CFIDS and FM are real illnesses.
I really cannot give a lot of details as to the actual hearing, but how it ended was that the vocational expert said that basically there are no jobs that I am capable of doing in the workforce that would tolerate excessive absences, trips to the bathroom, and a rest period during the day. It looks very promising!
