Please help me.long stroy short, I filed for tdiu, had a C&p done, and now I am facing a reduction + denied tdiu.
The C&p examiner DX me with schizoid personality disorder and said my depression was secondary to it. In ~30 mins she had enough information to DX me with this, but I have been seeing psychiatrists since 2015 and not once have this crossed their minds. I do not have a schizoid personality disorder.
The examiner misunderstood what I was telling her, and I see it in the report. She kept on asking me how do I know I have depression. What kind of question is that? She knows i’m xxxxxxx SC for it. I would tell her how I knew that I was depressed and she would repeat the question, this went on for about 5 mins. I believe she was trying to bait me into saying that I did not know that i’m depressed. I also believe that she thinks I am faking.
She asked me to describe my depression and I tell her it makes me feel depressed (DUH!). She never asked me about any other symptoms.
She discredits the last C&P exam I had because of the multiple symptoms, and she says this new exam is a correction. WTF? She did not even try to figure out why all those symptoms were checked. Never asked me about it.
This was also done on a PTSD and I never filed for PTSD.
I believe her answer to question 3 is a denial for tdiu, but ffs don’t halfass a CP exam.
This examiner screwed me over and I need help.
