I Won!!... with a small catch

On the 12th of March (see Nervous and Worried), I had my hearing with Social Security.  It was 45 minutes to an hour long and it felt like forever.  The judge was difficult to "read" up until the decision was rendered.

She wanted to know everything about both my Emphysema and Bipolar disorders.  She was difficult, asking some of the same questions 2 and 3 times.  I guess she was trying to see if my responses changed from one question to the next.

I can understand to a degree what she was doing but it felt as if I was on the verge of denial of my benefits and was surprised when the judgement went in my favor.  So I won.

The only drawback to the entire trial was that she ordered my case to be re-evaluated in 12 months.  Which means I will go back to fighting for my benefits again in 12 months but at least I won for now and that has helped relieve some of the stress both Jackie and myself have been under for the last (almost) 4 years now.

But I Won is all that matters right now.

I will approach the bridge of re-evaluation when it gets here and not worry about it until then.

But I Won.
Thank God for small miracles.

Anyway, Thank you all to those who had me in their prayers and those that crossed their fingers and toes for me.

Just wanted to let you all know that it went well for me.

I hope you all have a good day and that your week is going well for you.
