I was curious if anyone has ever done workman's comp? Specifically for emotional distress? I am filing for workman's comp due to the trauma of almost dying in an elevator a couple days ago. I can't get back in an elevator now, and I work on the 28th floor, which makes it basically impossible to get to my office. Yesterday I went in to file the paperwork for workman's comp and climbed up and down 28 flights of stairs 4 or 5 times and today my leg muscles are so sore that I can barely walk. So it's not gonna be feasible to go to work in my office. I am seeing my family dr today to fill out the workman's comp form, and also seeing the counselor for work. I just called my psychiatrist and she is out of town for a week and her earliest appt is a month away. I told them the situation and hopefully she can still give me a letter even though she is out of town. I'm trying to get as much paperwork as possible to submit w/ my form. Then hopefully they can accommodate me by allowing me to work from home (which we already have a program in place for). But I'd like to hear other people's experiences with workman's comp. I've never done this before.

My brain just tells me I’m a jerk, I’m fat for eating so much (even today when it was likely my only meal for the day... so that seems silly but other people don’t know...
