oh gee I feel like such an idiot !
after filing for disability it was my first visit with the physch-
I told my slef I was NOT going to cry - WELL guess what ??
I bet I cried the almost the WHOLE hour I was in there- I felt so foolish and I kept apologizing--and someof the questions OMG like I am suppose to KNOW and remember
after all of the questions towards the end he said some numbers and wanted me to repeat them "BACKWARDS" well the first few of THREE were easy - then he got to 5- 7 numbers WELL forget it I couldn't remember them frontwards , let alone backwards ! and then he said counting back from 100 tell me then in 3's ! ! !
OH GOD I bet he thought I was completely STUPID ! I just couldn't do it
well I got a few but that was it - I had to count on my fingers and talk out loud-just felt so stupid
he asked me who the wisconsin govenor was - well I had no idea so I just guessed - I was wrong of course ( I later asked my husband who was), I told the guy I don't pay attention to that stuff cause I don't understand it !
then I TOTALLY screwed up on today s date - he asked me what day it was - I said 9-11 he says what ?? I said 9-11 cause I didn't want to come here today you know september 11th ??? then he says what month is this I said november - I had the number s all screwed up , and my appt was at 9 - I'm weird I know - sorry
what I don't understand is HOW do they base as to wehter you are qualified for disability on just a ONE time visit ??
he also asked me how I felt about myself - I said I HATE myself and how can I like myself whenI am in PAIN 24-7 ???
I have been dealing with this all alone for about 4 years now with NO MEDS - only samples from the clinic that didn't do any good at all -
then he wanted to talk to my husband alone - that was for like 10 ,minutes- and the guy asked him about my moods and my pain - my husband told him the same as I told him- he can't take living with my moods - he left me once and is about ready to leave me again....
so now I am worried as to whether I blew it big time - or if my truthfulness paid off - any ideas ANYONE ???
will I get sent to a medical DR too ??
PLease I need some answers here
I worry ALOT - even about things that haven't even happend
