He commented on how "young " I looked when hearing first began. That was the beginning of the end. I feel he didn't care about the evidence and chosen to dismiss my medical problems. He decided I don't have legitimate pain. Apparently trying to continue my lifelong practice of yoga is wrong. I am not allowed to drive because of epilepsy, but he finds me capable of standing at a register with no problems. Did I mention I have Interstitial cystitis? That is a bladder condition, which, during flare ups, makes one feel like a raging bladder infection is present. Constant pressure with a constant urge to urinate. Osteoarthritis in shoulder and neck which restricts movement. Shooting pains in neck when doing certain things. Like moving my head. Lifting a gallon of milk is painful. Yet judge finds me capable of being a cashier . Oh yes, I have an 81 year old mother whom I'm responsible for. I have no choice. We don't have the money for drivers and housekeepers. Its 4:30 in the morning, I have been up most of the night with painful bladder and fear of losing my home. I was denied disability and I turn 61 in August.
