Hi everybody,I've been out of touch for months due to chaos in my life with bankruptcy, trying to downsize & pack before getting kicked out of home, sweet elderly mother, nerve-racking testifying as a witness in a horrible criminal case(he got life+89yrs!) that set off a bad RAflare, and like all of you, not feeling well. I had been talking with all of you on laptop in pms during tv but looking up-down with my motion-sickness caused chronic bad headaches that disappeared when I stopped. In the daytime I enjoy puppy, keep up with basic housework, & always need an hours-long nap/rest. I try to add one more task ie either quick errands, paperwork for bankruptcy-disability-bills/banking, sorting&packing, or if it's a feeling-better day, I try to machine-quilt more of my daughter's Christmas gift. Something had to go so it was talking online so much. I miss all of you though and hope that after our move (whenever) I can check in at least monthly. The same goes for my Rheumatoid Arthritis board and quilting board so don't take it personal. I'm here today because my Hearing Before the Judge for SSDisability approval is finally going to happen next Tues and I'm really scared! I started the whole process over a year ago! What if I can't convince him I deserve it?Any advice about how to prepare? I do have an attorney but don't know how much he will do though he'll tell me at our meeting this Fri. It should help that I'm only 6years away from ss anyway and that my RD gave me a permanent handicapped parking placard. The one thing several of you told me in the past was to write out a detailed example of my day with all the difficulties from my combined conditions. I'll also write out what an employer would have to accept... ie limitations, flexibility (may need to stay home for RA or leave suddenly if bad diarrhea day). What else might help? Thanks.Cathy
