“A fine line separates the weary recluse from the fearful hermit. Finer still is the line between hermit and bitter misanthrope.” -Dean Koontz, Velocity

I have my doctor's appointment for disability determination tomorrow, and I am terrified. They won't reschedule me, and if I don't go, they might make the decision that I'm not disabled. I was optimistic earlier in the week, but started to panic last night. All of my fears are irrational, but they won't stop:

1) I don't like elevators, so I'm going to have to go up the stairwell. I'm afraid of being trapped in the stairwell.
2) I tall buildings and big streets make me uncomfortable, and the building is located in an office building in the middle of the city.

I'm so scared. :-(

Geez, i'm sorry that i didn't get to you the day you posted this....please tell me how did that appointment go? Did you make it to the appiontment? Did your Aunt go with you? Did you get a drive there, or have to take a bus? What did the worker know prior to you going, about your illness? Did you tell her/him over the phone? or by email? You need to let people know in the future how difficult it is for you to meet, piror to the meeting. And not leave any emotion out. Think about before hand what you need a person to know, and plan on delivering your message in print, if it's too difficult for you to say when you get in to see them.
