Thank you for that additional information.
As far as extending your disability until you feel emotionally and mentally ready to go back to work this may not be something that your cardiologist or primary doctor can do. You would most likely need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist to get an extension of your disability for these sorts of things.
Of course, as far as your lack of physical readiness to return to work, this is something that your primary care MD or cardiologist (for heart related reasons) can do for you.
Another option to get more disability time would be to hire an attorney experienced in these sorts of cases so she can present your issues to the State and your employer on your behalf.
It is good that your cardiologist seems to agree that you need more time as your heart issues are very serious and medication interactions still seem to be a problem.
Does this make sense to you?
