One Down, One To Go!

Today was my psych exam, and the preliminary diagnosis was, "Your'e crazier than a shit-house rat!"

Just kidding! (thanks for the image, Becks!)

The testing today was almost the same as the one in August except this time D was there and had to fill out a questionnaire (in a separate room), but was in the room for the "history" of all of this, so if I got something "wrong" she would correct me.

However, I'm just as drained now as I was that first time.

Also, I expected hostility, but didn't experience any of that at all. My psychiatrist and test administrator were very pleasant and fair in their questioning and paused when I couldn't remember something or got "choked up" and couldn't speak.

I'm going to keep this one "short and sweet", but I wanted to thank my friend and "teacher", Ms. Becks for the homework assignment of documenting the hell out of "what a long strange trip it's been". It helped a lot that my examiners didn't come into the whole exam thing "cold".

More to come Friday evening.......

Ah shucks, little Bill, I didn't do nuthin but give you a little kick in the hiney. You and D did all the work.

I'm glad it went as well as could be so far and I hope tomorrow will be the same.

Glad you let us know how it went.

Of course we'll want to know what happens tomorrow, and we'll all hope that they will grant you SSDI while trying to figure out exactly what's going on with you.

Love you both, Becks

6-8 weeks to get a decision, Becks, and I've got Binder&Binder in their stall, "chompin at the bit" (I hope).

This has all been very tiring on D what with running me, her brother and sister to the docs while STILL working.

Sainthood's not good enough for her!

What Becks wrote. Even if I don't post, I stop by the blog every day. I also vote for Paulding once or twice every day (home and office). Still hoping it rises in the standings.

Hugs to you both,

Ma/Mood! *wink*

Don't matter if you post or not, I KNOW you're there! *S*

Thanks, as always, for feeding and voting!

Paulding is a small shelter, but you ought to see how it's "laid out"!

They do SO MUCH with so little.
