Hi I am from the USA and we call ESA here SSID Social Security Income Disability. I have my hearing in the morning and I am scared. I feel like a normal person but if I think of my life as it is it is pretty devasting. I hear and see things and stay in foom most of the day. I do not like going out of the house which was never like me before. Any advice on what to say Hugs to all

I do not know what happened to me two and half years ago. Definitely not the same person I feel horrible and I hate being sick like this. Not sure if I will get this across to the judge or not. I actually have a job interview on Thursday Weird how all this stuff happens Hugs to all

Everything was good just very anxious to get out of there. The Judge asked a lot of questions too many and then My lawyer asked me a whole bunch more-mainely about daily activities do I watch tv read books-The main focus my lawyer got across is I have poor concentration and inability to focus so questions were geared around this I will not find out an answer for at least a month or more. I guess they write up a fifteen page answer summary and they have understudies writing up all the decisions so they are busy. I am hoping I have a job interview the day after tomorrow I will take the job as I heard it will not effect my benefits directly I am allowed to make a certain amount that they will deduct from my monthly award if I get on disability. Thank you everyone for caring means a lot. Hugs and love to everyone
