The mere fact that Petitioner has carried on “certain daily activities . . . does not in any way detract from her credibility as to her overall disability. One does not need to be ‘utterly incapacitated’ in order to be disabled.” Benecke v. Barnhart, 379 F.3d 587, 594 (9th Cir. 2004.)

The ALJ cannot reject a claimant’s subjective pain or symptom testimony “simply because the alleged severity of the pain or symptoms is not supported by objective medical evidence.” Lingenfelter v. Astrue, 504 F.3d 1028, 1040 n.11 (9th Cir. 2007).
