I fell into a deep depression after the injury due to the rentless pain. I had to get an attorney after reaching MMI (maximum medical improvment). I have been in tx for sexual abuse off an on for about 10 years. I started seeing a t due to all the chaos of my job and back pain, etc. When I went into the hospital for depression, my attorney stated that the work comp would be liable. In any work comp case litigation, they open ALL records. They want to even know the hospital you were born in. It's unbelievable. They want to EVERYTHING about you. Your parents age, health, etc. How you felt about your parents, yourself, your upbringing. I felt totally violated. I have never been through anything like this in my life.

As a nurse, please watch out for getting hurt, esp. your back. They will look down on you. Work comp is like a government all to itself. If your injury doesn't show on an x-ray, you are a lier. If you have something show, they think it's an old injury. Be careful about pulling up people in bed. They tell you where to work and what docs to see. Yes, you can see your own doc, but you will have to see there's too. It's awful. I have been treated like a criminal, but have received no work comp benefits at all. They will spend money on spying on you and their doctors and attorney, so they don't give you a darn pill for pain. It makes no sense at all. It's a nightmare!

I worked on Rehab. I didn't know what I was getting into. I was a brand new nurse 3 wks into a job with a whole future ahead.
