I'm just glad to here someone is collecting. Was put out of work in 04/00 for the second time in less than 2 years for seizures, migraines, and to many medication side effects on the job . Was unsuccessful finding a new job for over a year because I would no longer hide my epilepsy before I got hired so I decided to file for SSD in 05/01. After 2 denials and appeals I had a hearing in front of a judge a year later. The judge ruled against me. Said my seizures where controlled "enough" and I was exaggerating the medication side effects and to go get a job. My lawyer at the time sucked. He never opened his mouth during the hearing. He told me there was no appealing the judges decision, it was over. I believed him, how stupid was I. Thanks for letting me vent!
