    Thanks for the advise...the test is tomorrow...I can appear very high functioning even when I'm feeling lousy and I just don't want this guy to assume like so many other family and acquaintences that it's all in my head, esp since that ciguatera test came back positive. Did u guys discuss ur test results, meds, etc w/ him/her? Did u have someone go in to the test w/ u as an advocate? How long did it take? Did they allow u to take breaks?

    and do u mean i shud act more depressed than i already am??? shud i fess up that my doc just put me on st john's wort? he wanted to gv me an antidepressent but i am hesitant bec i thought ss wud see that as proof that it is all in my head??? i'm a little confused.

    I remember my lawyer telling me to look as awful as possible and to be as depressed as I could be. I know my husband went with me, but don't remember if he asked him anything. It was 17 years ago! I don't even remember what they asked me! Sorry.
    If I were you, I'd bring up the St. John's Wort, because it shows you belive yourself depressed enough to need something for it.
    I wish you the best of luck with it.
