  1. I know exactly how you feel. I was fortunate enough to retire with a pension and good insurance but my pay is only about half. Your symptoms are much like mine. Don't get discouraged, a doctor's backing helps but is not totally necessary. A majority of these cases are won at the hearing level and your attorney will know what he has to prove.

I am waiting on reconsideration

Spent twenty years with them and retired due to medical issues. During this time I developed hypertension, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, sleep apnea, fatigue, join
