I got my letter from the judge who did my hearing and his decision was a "fully favorable decision". Woo Hoo!! I still have to wait for the letter from my local social security office for all the specifics as to how much I get a month and how much I get in back pay. I was quite surprised to have gotten my letter from the judge already, as I only had my hearing a few weeks ago. So all in all it has taken me not quite a year and a half to get my approval, which again, from what I've heard and read, that is sooner then most people get it. Most everyone I talked to said it would take at least a couple of years, so I feel blessed that it came this soon for me.
After all this time and waiting I'm not sure how I actually feel about the fact that I am now "disabled", or as my best friend put it, officially "messed up"
)( But actually I am looking at it as starting the next phase of my life, and going forward from here.
