I was cleared by my insurance company's chosen occupational therapist to return to work but not by any other sort of doctor. I believe the sessions were more of a farce than anything. They were not productive in any way. He cleared me based on cognitive tests for memory, which have nothing to do with the emotional issues that put me on disability in the first place. Is this adequate to have me forced to return to work? I don't exactly have a family doctor at the moment, but my regular counsellor/therapist and two separate psychologists agreed that it's in my best interest not to return to this same toxic work environment.
