    I feel like that would just be seen as aggressive or otherwise symptomatic. In my experience waving documentation around that's beyond what most people have available is a very, very bad idea. Gets seen as threatening/uncooperative.

    In any case, I'm not really seeing what []i]benefit[/i] I'd be reaping from this. In my experience, even if I do offer documentation it doesn't count. You get crap like, oh, being blamed for not seeing anyone for months when their own system records that it took them 6 months to get you an appointment. Or people who won't believe you about your own financial situation - what am I supposed to do, bring my pay stubs and bank statements into the office? This type of person that the mental health system has simply will not work with you unless you fit into their boxes. If it wasn't this thing it would be something else.
