Hi everyone, I'm a new member and I've gotten tremendous knowledge on here since reading your posts. I'm 39 years old and I'm applying for SSDI due to several cervical surgeries. I had my PTSD C & P about 3 weeks ago and I'm not too sure how I feel about the results. At the end of the exam the Dr told me that I infact had PTSD along with some depression, insomnia, but he said mild PTSD. I don't feel I'm anywhere near mild as I have suffered with this for over 20 years but was too embarrassed to go and get treated. I have degree in nursing and I've tried to ignore my symptoms and lead a normal life but was tormented on the inside. Currently not working and waiting to hear from them. I just feel like by him saying "mild" that my claim won't be as strong when a decision is made. What rating would mild PTSD fall into?? Is there anything else I can do??
