Joel Ryan Cawhorn
Judge Starr had his mind made up before I got there. I have been unable to work one day since April 3, 2013 due to severe disability in discs, leg disease, neck spurs and emotional distress and instability. I was denied three times and have been forced to rely on the help and support of my mother who lives on social security retirement. She also has to raise my 16 year old daughter since she was 1 year old. I am 41 years old and the last 8 years of my working career I spent in severe pain and was in a pain management program for 10 years until it just didn't help anymore. I got out of the program just hoping I would die and not be a burden anymore. But it didn't happen. My name is Joel Cawhorn from Gore Oklahoma and I feel the whole social security system let me down. I hired a lawyer from Tulsa and the judge more or less waved her off. I need help but have no one to help but my mother. It's very hard on her. I feel like they have their own choices that aren't based on fact just what ever mood they're in at the time. Our system stinks and needs someone that can do the job based on needs.

She did use SSR 02-2p for interstitial cystitis. She didn't research it at all and thought it was renal disease. Wrong listing! She stated labs didn't show I have IC. Well labs do not show IC a hydrodistention does. Now appealing to Judicial Council.
