Just keep in mind that this doc…
[B][I]may[I][B][/B][/I][/I][/B] be independent, but WHO is paying his fee?
Therefore just let him ask you questions based on what info he has ‘read’ and see where that takes you. It doesn’t pay to lie at all, but provide only the information that is asked for. Tho It likely wouldn’t hurt to provide some papers or diagnostic information about CIDP. It may just go into your file unread, but the it IS in your file?
As an internist, he/she may or may not have a full idea or appreciation of what CIDP is or does to you. So in that respect be prepared to be short and sweet about what you are NOT able to do in work and life since CIDP onset. Not to mention the pain? Emphasise how your life has suffered from this condition or disease that you never could have expected prior to getting it. Don’t forget your cane or your walker tho!
Go get ’em! Break a leg, as they say in the theatre [not in reality].
