IME

I was stuck with  a needle several years ago.  Subsequently contacted HEP C and HIV.  Since that time I have been on labor and industries and social security disability.  Currently my life s ok but i am unable to function at a 100%.  If I get over tired I get confused and frequently mix things up.  I also have nerve damage from one of the viruses attacking my spine.  This was diagnosed by a neurologist. My ambulation has been affected requiring me to use a cane or a walker if going long distances.  I am now being scheduled for an Independent medical exam to reevaluate my limitations.

Has anyone else been thru a n IME?  I am concerned that they will not understand that my limitations are not always noticable.  The last 3 years I worked sick I could not put in a 40 hour week.  Any suggestions or advice would help.
thank you.
