Some of you may have heard of cases where disability insurance companies (i.e. the type that pay you an income if you become unable to work) have said they wouldn't give a payment until somebody had done the evidence-based treatments of graded exercise therapy (GET) and/or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I heard indirectly an interesting twist on this recently: the insurance company said as the the person was able to do an exercise program*, it suggested the person was able to work! In this particular case, the person has a professional desk job, and has cognitive difficulties which they feel makes it impossible for them to work. * this person was doing quite a lot - 40 minutes at a go - although it is unclear if they are really able to do this amount or pushing themselves too hard.
