    I am going to ssdi's mental exam for depression and anxiety on next tues. I am scared I'll screw up. What do they ask you and what are you supposed to tell them? Do they really let you explain why you are having problems? Should I bring my boyfriend who witnesses my depression/FMS effects? Do they make you take a long test?
    Sorry for all the questions. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't have an answer for you as I have not gone threw this yet, but I will bump you up to the top of the board and see if someone else will read and answer this for you.

    Mickey went last week and it was not a plesant experience. The doctor was very rude and impatient. The post above explains some of what he asked but M did not take a written test. Hopefully you will get a nice doctor. Good luck., "Cast all your cares on the Lord"
