    Hi guys, I finished the forms - finally- DH gave me some insight- but his mind is squirrelier than mine - Ha. Today I received in the mail an appt. sent up for Thursday for medical evaluation- so what do I do- start to panic and I don't go till Thursday. DH keeps telling me to calm down so I took my Xanax and am trying to be a good little girl..

    Thanks, guys and gals for the input. Say a prayer for me please.

    Hugs

    These med exams are preetty much standard Bureacratic
    Procedure. There is nothing to be really concerned about.
    How long ago did you start your claim officially?? They
    are most likely going to have you jump thru more hoops
    after this. So be patient and stay with your goal!!

    My best to you,

    can you find out in advance the name of the doctor & do an internet search on her/him to see if you can find out any info on them? Just wondering...

    Hello Janet,

    Without looking back, it seems that you are following just behind me with the SSD Claim. I have been reading most of your posts and I recall you receiving the "daily activities form" to fill out, not too long ago.

    I could/may be wrong but I think this is the case. I had an evaluation, but mine was not a medical; it was a mental evaluation. I was on here asking questions also, and received some great responses.

    That was about 3 weeks ago and I haven't heard anything.

    Good luck with your medical evaluation,
