Getting Anxious Now

Question

5 more hours and I will be in the examiners office doing my c/p mental exam. i stayed up till 4 in the morning because i was thinking about this day.

wasn't nervous until now, I'm getting pretty anxious. good thing wife is coming, but same time it be tough because i would have to share my experience

of iraq which i do not like to talk about. been almost 7 years since I felt the heat of iraq; yet i can feel it every single breathing day. on a good note I heard

nothing but good things about the examiner, but do not want to be naive about it. I will be open, but I hope I won't go in one of my outburst spells. No

I will not. I know they are there to help. I wish I can get of my meds 4ever.

Being nervous about a C&P Exam is normal. It really is no0t that big a deal cause your claim is pretty much decided by your medical evidence and the C&P just formalizes the diagnosis and sometimes the prospects for recovery.

Good Luck

Just be honest!!! Tell the examiner how it's affecting/effecting your daily life and relationships. Don't hold back!! You'll probably cry but then I haven't met anyone w/PTSD who doesn't. Eye contact is important. The more eye contact you have the less sick you are. It's important to admit suicidal and/or homocidal thoughts/ideation. They won't drag you away and it does have bearing on how they'll rate you. The less problems you have the lower your rating. Good luck! jmo

Good luck with you exam today! Just be honest and you should be just fine. Rockman has his on the 8th & is also very anxious. He, also, has been told that the examiner is very good at her job and he has a good one to do the C & P exam. I am glald that you did not wait as long as he did. He waited almost 40 years to get help. May God be with you on your visit. Let us know how it went. Take Care of yourself.

Mrs. Rockman

Good luck to you; my advise on the past, accept the things you can't change, maybe people will see the new "you" and accept you for who you are. Peace.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
