My Mental CE appt...
« on: August 10, 2017, 02:53:26 PM »
I had my mental ce appt yesterday and I'm going over and over everything about it.  I lasted about 35 mins and I talked most of the time.  She did ask a couple questions here and there.  It was rough,  I had to bring back everything that happened and ended up having a panic attack toward the end.  She told me to take a couple of minutes and calm my breathing.  Once I was able to calm down,  she said " I think I have everything I need here,  I don't make the decisions,  but I don't see you having a problem getting disability.  They aren't the fastest,  but that should help relieve some of the stress."  I thanked her and went to my car.  I sat there another 10-15 in my car trying to calm down before driving home.  I am cautiously optimistic but still very stressed and scared.  My main complaint is PTSD with depression and anxiety.  I had another appt this morning with my Psychiatrist to go over my meds which are still all messed up and I'm still in a fog.  I want to be optimistic about everything she said,  but I'm so used to things not working out,  that I'm scared.  My adjudicator has been awesome thru this all and called me to make sure I would be able to make the CE's (had physical and mental) and he told me to call mid August for an update.  I am now also learning about dependent benefits.  I have two daughters (8 and 11) and I'm praying I can get them benefits also.  I pray this all comes to a positive conclusion and just wanted to see how everyone else interprets what she told me. 
Thanks again everyone

It sounds like it went as well as it could (not that having a panic attack is good), but at least she saw some of what you go through.  The waiting and not knowing is the worst part.  I hope you are approved.

So my adjudicator told me to call mid August for an update.  If a decision has been made,  would he be able to tell me or would the rep at the local office have to tell me?

Both can tell you. But, they aren't suppose to.
Hope the size of a mustard seed can produce Faith that can move mountains.

I thought so.  All these who state they received calls telling them they were approved,  were those standard or was it a case where the rep shouldn't have called,  but did?!
