  • Usually it's an interview and some standardized psychological tests - other times, it's just a computerized test. Just answer honestly and you'll be fine. :)))
  • No need to fret over the psych eval. I have suffered from panic attacks and major depression for the past 13 years. I know exactly how you are feeling. I had all the same worries that you are having now. I had my psych eval done in late Janary. Not all that long ago. And as bionic said it is more or less an interview and the questions are just to make sure you are not a serial killer :jawdrop: - My eval took about 2 hours. Best advice I can give you is to just go in and be yourself. Once it is over you will wonder why you worried so much to begin with >:D<

    Take good care,

  • Mine was simply a test to be sure I was aware of what was being done. They want to know if you understand it all.

    This was actually started when some people were found unable to deal with having the SCS in their body after it was placed. To avoid future problems they started testing.

    Just be honest. You'll do fine.
