I applied for SS disability benefits and was turned down by Social Security because I said I had a cognitive disability,seizures,mini strokes and epilepsy. Their reply was “Despite the pain and discomfort you are currently experiencing, you are able to move about and use your arms, legs, hands and back perform my seizures are not frequent or severe enough to be considered disabling under their rules. Although you have some mental problems, you are able to think, communicate,act in your own interest and pursue your usual activities. Therefore your claim has been denied because you are not disabled or blind under our rules.”
My attorney has filed an appeal, but she just admited to me yesterday that she didn’t have a clue what an AVM is and how radiosurgy has affected my cognitive thinking.
Has any of you won a disability case with Social Security and if so, what did you use for a defense?
Please help if you can.
