  • Had my psychological exam for SSI today


    Hi everyone,
    Well this morning, i had my exam. It was not bad at all. All I had to do was answer the standered tests. I had to take in all my medican, which was a 1/2 a plastic bag. She asked what conditions, and why i filed for SSI to begin with. Told all what I had which is a long list.
    Then they ask you some remembering questions, like repeat back a line of numbers, and count back words by 7 from 100, which i couldnt even think right to even do. I told her i think my medician is makeing me stupid. I can even function. The whole thing took about 45 mins is all, went fairly fast.
    But from there, she said she isnt sure how long it takes SS to respond. She said she had a few complaints because it was taking long time. she did say it would only take her by the end of the week to get her stuff sent to them. So all in all, its not bad at all.
    Take care everyone

    I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
    1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
    2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
    I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

    I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

        Good luck with your SSI interview. Its realaly not an esy thing to do, The best things i can tell you is this. Makes everything they ask you sound worse then it its. if they say how often do you havae the bad pains. dont say ohh every now and then or every month .. You have to be very exact and say I have it all the time. It never goes away.
        For me its hard to do. I dont want to make myself sound so bad. and have no self respect so i tend to be little more soft on my self when describing things, And i think its not a good thing.
        My mother said that she had people where she works, a state home, which cares for mentlay handicaped people. Well more people then not get so hurt there and file for SSI also. Most said to her they had to get a lawyer, but once you get a lawyer its a pretty much guarente to it, plus they will have to go pay to when ever you first filed to try to get it even if it was 4 years back.
        So once again good luck with your interview.
