Remember Me
So, thanks, Judge Walls, for the consolation prize of back pay for a couple years when I was in gov't housing. It really helps when I think of the corruption I experienced in state funded housing. The sexual harassment, authoritarian rules, threats of homelessness, rape by another person in the program, as well as the constant gaslighting. You would really dig this place, they told me I was too intelligent to be mentally ill, too! Then they threatened to take me to a homeless shelter if I didn't get a job. One of the bht's would show up at my home at random times, sometimes 9, 9:30 at night, and make lewd inferences and stare at my breasts. It was a really edifying experience. I actually did get a job at my old employer, actually! And then I was fired because I was sick too much in the first two weeks of training. My anxiety was so bad, I'd get on the bus, and I'd hold onto the bus pole, my arms shaking from panic, as if I were holding a jackhammer. Eventually, I couldn't even get on the bus. But, yeah-if that alleviated your guilt in denying a fellow woman, a domestic violence, child abuse, multiple rape survivor with degenerative, incurable diseases that will eventually kill me, good on ya! I think about you all the time as I'm retching into the toilet, praying for the pain to stop. I think about you when I'm sitting in the living room, crying because I'm in too much pain to fold clothes, and I can't even let my emotional support animal lay against me, because any touch hurts. I hope you think about me when the people in your life get devastating diagnoses or have partners or loved ones that do. It's a shame that I was too composed, too proud, too whatever it was that made you think I was a liar and made you deny me the chance of having more say in my life. What do the others do? What will I do when my partner dies or tires of me? I'll die, likely. So, in closing, this week's plunger of poison going into my thigh goes out to you. So do the tears, anger, and disgust I carry with me every day. Jsyk, I used quite a bit of the back pay to support my household and better my life. I didn't buy drugs or stupid stuff. I have self help books, medical supplies, a stockpile of meds, hygiene supplies, toilet paper...I even went to Flagstaff (I had to take lots of pain and anti anxiety meds and lay in the back of the truck on a pillow nest the whole way to and from, got a script for steroids, and almost ended up in the hospital, btw) to do some soul searching in the mountain air and be far, far away from toxic humans. I used the hot tub and the sauna and wheeled my walker back to my room. I bought my partner a vehicle (they did keep me off the streets, after all). I'm going to stay motivated and try to stay positive, even when I'm taking my fourth shower in my old lady shower chair because I'm having a hot flash-again. I hope my partner writes you a letter to let you know when I die, because I'm working on forgiving you, but you need to know that you are denying a very sick, damaged person the very right to dignity and any kind of independence. I'm ringing my metaphorical bell and repeating, "SHAME! SHAME!" every time an unscrupulous judge denies a disabled person the income that is rightly theirs. There are a lot of fakers, but I am not one of them. I will not dumb myself down or do a cripple jig just because the person appointed to give me mercy demands I do. My pain is not performative. Shame on you.

My hearing was May 12 2017 and received approved letter Sept 2017. I am very grateful that I have Judge Lynn Farmer who listened to my testimony represented myself. Now my worries were all gone and get back what I am now. I can described Judge Farmer as a fair, polite and honest person. Again my sincere thanks to you Judge Farmer and God bless you always.

For Judge Bucci, I understand she has a lot of cases but my prayer is that she seeks discernment on any future case like mine. I was denied and I get scolded by Dr's telling me I should be on disability, they treat me like I have not tried. My prayer is that if she has anyone else with all my symptoms that she would please show them a little mercy and help them. It is very clear that her career has jaded her to everyone. God willing she will never get sick like me! Have mercy on her if she does!!!

I had a hearing on 3-17-2014. I was leary about the outcome by reading the reviews and the % of cases that were denied. Don't let the statistics discourage you. Be honest and confident. I thought the Judge listened to my testimony and took all medical history and other pertinent information given to him and thoroughly made his decision based on all facts and evidence. The Judge listened to everyone thoroughly. I was well prepared with my testimony as was the judge in his decision. The judge was polite and very fair listening to me. I was granted my disability.
