We went for the ssa doctor appt today. First of all he was a jerk!!!!! He said that he was there to do a psychatric evaluation only. Mickey had touble answering his question because he can not think very well. The doctor would interupt a lot. He really made Mickey uncomfortable and mad!! He said several times that he has a brother just like Mickey. Do not know if that is good or bad, I think maybe good. He did say, "You did not do anything to cause your back pain, it is heridtary. I am sorry that you are in so much pain." He told M that he needed to lose 75 pounds and he would not have to take so much meds!! DUH!! I filled out the doctor evaluation report when I got home and sent it in telling how the doctor acted. I asked if M was satisfied with the visit, I wrote that depends on what the doctor says in his report. Oh well, time will tell I guess. Praise God we have made one more step.
