Had SSD Consulting Exam-psychiatric exam yesterday. Why waste taxpayer money for this. The doc cut me off half-way through my answers, kept asking me what was wrong, what and when I had symptoms etc (he was with the same clinic I was already seeing when my symptoms started and he had my record in his lap!!). Anyone else tired of explaining yourself 4-5 times per month to medical people who already have your record. Same with meds-I finally just game him my copy of SSD appl that listed symptoms and meds. Then come the questions - what is 2x9? Listed numbers starting with group of 3 and adding until he got to 7 numbers; I had to repeat the numbers. Then count from 100 backwards by 3's. Another set of numbers but had to repeat them backwards. What is the diff between a lie and a mistake? Exam over - Then he talked to my husband for approx 3 mins. What did I prove-that I can lose my temper, that I'm intelligent, that I can repeat numbers if I shut my eyes and concentrate hard and that the diff between a lie and a mistake is that a lie is intentional and a mistake isn't. Since I'm already on private disability insurance I would think this would have already been covered in my other specialists reports. I loved the therapist I was seeing here, hated the MD because he didn't know how to treat my symptoms - and both agreed I had no mental health issues so I left and went elsewhere for treatment. Do you think they sent me back because I left their clinic with unresolved issues, or just that it was the only one avail in the area. As a note, the SSD is office steps away from this clinic, but because of my address I can't go here - I have to go to one 1-1/2 hours east of me. Now the state has the job of handling the records anyway. Sorry, I just had to vent-I am so angry at this jerk because he really didn't care. Was he just making tick marks on right/wrong - yes/no answers. He sure didn't have time to actually write anything down-if he had waited for me to finish my answer (which were much shorter than this posting - HA).
