On tdrl for chronic ptsd and bilateral ankles? I have my first evaluation coming up and i dont know what to expect. I get 60% from the va and then social security. I have gone to several appointments with the va for mental health and counseling and also take anxiety and sleeping medication. The thing i am worried about is that it is a roller colster and i do ok for a month or so and then fall back into the same cycle of depression,anxiety, nightmares, ect. Will my eval consider that the conditions are on and off? That is what my medical records suggest. Please let me know.
