Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Hurricanes, 9-11, and mass school shootings, have all tragically claimed victims. Acute stress reactions are highly prevalent among survivors. In the aftermath of mass violence, terror, or disaster, most people can fully recover from even moderate stress reactions in several months. While resilience is a common observation, some survivors experience readjustment issues and develop chronic problems with disturbed mood and behavior in the second stage of recovery.

Failure to Follow Prescribed Treatment: The Importance of Compliance

It is very important to comply with prescribed treatment for your conditions. SSA will agree that your conditions or symptoms are worse when you are not doing the things your treating providers recommend; however, it is harder to be approved if you are not compliant with treatment. This is particularly important in cases with conditions that are expected to be amenable to treatment. Diabetes and epilepsy are two major impairments where SSA evaluates an individual's compliance with prescribed treatment. In general, a seizure disorder is expected to be well-controlled if an individual takes their anti-epileptic medications as prescribed. Similarly, blood sugars and A1C levels have a better chance of being well-controlled when an individual follows a diabetic diet, and takes insulin or diabetic medications as prescribed.
