I am in the US, and I am 6 months into my claim for a disability retirement. My case worker just told me that they will be sending me to an independent medical examiner. I will have the name/date next week some time. In the meantime, I'm hoping some of you have had to go through this and might be able to tell me what to expect. I'm very nervous about it, because I have read that they are simply looking for ways to trick you or prove that you are making it all up. My brain is so foggy half the time that I am sure I will say something that makes me sound crazy. I'm very worried about this exam! Please help!
