I go back to work in a few days after being on LTD for a couple of years. It's run out but I'm not ready mentally yet to return and yet I have to.
It's supposed to be a gradual return to work plan, but they keep changing everything on me and now it's not gradual, at least according to me. My psychiatrist, who's old and about to retire (haven't been with him long), apparently approved the plan according to my insurance company but after speaking with him about it yesterday he thinks he approved a GRTW but not any of the specifics of days, hours, etc. I don't think he even looked at the damn proposal because he was looking at an old one, not the most recent revised plan which was sitting on his desk which I pointed out to him. I'm so frustrated with him and his office right now, and I expressed some of that with him yesterday as well. When I explained the situation to my insurer today via e-mail, they told me his secretary phoned and said he approved the GRTW plan which from what he told me, isn't the case. WTF!!
Nothing much I can do about it now though. I'm going to be phoning his office after the first couple of days of work and will let him know how I'm doing. But I'm definately looking for another psychiatrist. The one's I've ever seen so far have been total idiots and obviously aren't taking care to look out for my best interests.
There's my vent!
