This is so true! He was sent to a psychiatric "independent" medical exam. What a joke. She wrote a report saying he doesn't have PTSD and is faking it. His own psychiatrist and psychologist wrote a rebuttal. Now it's just a matter of who the judge believes when he gets a hearing.t was a very negative and damaging experience, almost worse in a way than the ptsd
I wish we could. As a firefighter, he doesn't qualify for social security. We've realized now that he'll probably never be able to go back to the department, so he's filed for a disability retirement. But, that's at the mercy of whether or not they approve it.Maybe shoot for SSDI instead?

wish in some ways that he'd never filed an injury report
explained some of the tests and why they don't work on first responders
any literature or studies about the validity of psych testing in certain patient populations (i.e. first responders, etc)
yep.I kinda feel like I have to really measure how to communicate stuff to him like this.
