RE: Disability Claim No. xxx-xx-xxxx
Dear Mr. Muffolett:
This communication is intended to advise the U.S. Social Security Administration of the current status of my psychiatric treatment at the George Washington University Medical Center.
I had a final consultation with Dr. Suzanne M. Pitts on June 27, 1994; Dr. Pitts has completed her residency program at GW.
I was advised that I have been reassigned to another resident, Dr. Georgoplis [sic]. My therapy with Dr. Georgoplis will begin within the next few weeks.
You are advised that, as the attached billing statement indicates, I have been diagnosed by GW as suffering from delusional (paranoid) disorder: DSM-IIIR The diagnosis represents a change from the diagnosis bi-polar disorder (manic/depressive illness) indicated on the initial assessment chart prepared by Dr. Napoleon Cuenco of GW, dated September 24, 1992.
Apparently my wild mood swings, loose associations, and other mood congruent psychotic symptoms of manic/depressive illness have undergone a (miraculous) spontaneous remission!
Incidentally, Dr. Jerry M. Wiener, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, was recently elected President of the American Psychiatric Association.
