    I don't think it went well. The doctor was EXTREMELY brusque and wouldn't give me any idea of what his report was going to be. He was short with me, not quite unpleasant, but close. I am wondering if he was hostile toward me because Ex is paying him.

    Some docs are just this way all the time. I don't think they like being put in an adversarial position. My SSD doc was the same way. He almost seemed ashamed to be doing their exams. He ought to; you would have to be dead to not pass.

    Good luck.

    Love, Mikie

    So what happened with you? Does that mean that you went for a SSD exam and he said you were fine? I wonder if all doctors do that in adversarial situations--just automatically side with the person who's paying them?
