So i have chronic head pain as a result of having a braon tumor removed 9 years ago. 3 years ago i decided to file for disability. I was living in louisville at the time and found a lawyer who thought i had a great case. I didnt qualify for disability because ive never worked and my "injury" happened as a minor, but i did qualify for SSI. Shortly after that i became pregnant. So my bf and i moved to his home town in Missouri. I found another lawyer, who also said they felt my case would be easily winnable. At that point i was filing my first appeal. About 8 months after i had my son we moved back up to Michigan. I searched and searched for a lawyer. And every one i called turned me down, saying, "ur so young. 22 year olds should be able to do any job out there."
What the hell does my age have to do with the amount of pain im in? Y does my age over shadow everything else that shows how much pain im in and that i cant work?
I must have called 50 diffrent lawyers... All saying the same thing. I ended up being denied completely after my hearing last year.
Has anyone experienced ths sort of thing? Or way anyone denies disability or SSI for arbitrary reasons like ur age?
