Post Still stuck in limbo

The Coast Guard medical has not decide on what they want to do and its really eating me up. I know it shouldn't but its really hard being stuck and knowing there is nothing that can be done about it. I feel they want me to give up to make it easier to get rid of me. This would also allow them not to pay me disability for the rest of my life.
The only step I can take is calling my neurologist to set up an appointment. Hopefully this will be the last time I have to deal with him, yet I know this won't be the last.
Our medical corps man I'll admit has really tried to get this medical board pushed but even he isn't getting any answers.
My medical officer had prescribed me Wellbutrin. I had to find out myself that it has been known to cause seizures and that people with seizure disorders are strongly caution not to use it. That caused me lose all confidence in my doctor. I could cause a big stink about it but I know it wouldn't do a bit off good, because they're going to look at whats in the best interest of the government and not the patient. Its a sad deal but thats how the government works I guess.
