It is finally over!!!  I received my Fully Favorable Deccision today!!!   It was a Easter blessing and a early birthday present!!!  I am still kind of stunned I knew from my nursing background that I had meet for listings so it was just my irrational fear that for some reason there would be a denial, but I trusted my attorney when she told me after my hearing on 2/6/17 at 9:45 am I would receive a FF decision. 

Just to let you know the ALJ found the 3 CE doctors input to carry very limited weight from the pay Dr and gave NO valadation to the Endocrinologist that did my1st CE.  I knew the doctor CE would be discretided when I read my CD case file. The endocrinologist did not correlate my complications of my accident to 4 decades of being a Juvinal Diabetic, he had sever diagnosis from someone else recorded and he only focused his assessment to be limited to diabetes and ignored the non healing or peripheral neuropathy. He noted that per the VE input I could work a position that would accomadate frequent positions and elevate my legs at least ten minutes of every hour and I could not miss more than 2 days of work per month.  He stated that per the VE there were no jobs in the national economy.

So my advice you are your BEST ADVOCATE!!  You have to fight for the benifits you earned. Don't give up!!  You have to make sure you doctors hear you and they are aware of other doctors you see and what they have had diagnosed you with so your records corolate and are constited.  It doesn't hurt to contact and stay in contact with your elected officials.

No matter what happens in life try to smile and beleive every thing will be ok!!!  Then smile vs cry!!!!   😅😅😅😅😂
