Disability hearing advice

My hearing for ssdi is in September. Does anyone have advice? What happens during?

My advice is to answer every question like it’s you on your worst day. I was so scared of being considered a faker that I ended up misrepresenting myself as being healthier than I was, and I got denied.

Yeah, definitely pretend in your head that it is a bad day. I did the same thing as Ninja and looked better than I, am. Got denied. My next hearing I made exactly $1000 too much that year to qualify.
