I had a traumatic accident falling off a roof and onto a driveway. I sustained a vertebral compression fracture, fractured wrist, and a fractured talus that made my foot dislocate by nearly 180 degrees (i.e. the sole of the foot was facing up rather than down).
I still find myself suddenly feeling the edge of the roof creeping up my legs and torso as I slowly slipped off, the free fall sensations, impact and resulting skeletal rattling, the rubbery rub of my ankle cartilage as I turned my foot back to the normal direction, and the pain of traveling nearly 200 miles to the trauma center. It recurs every day for me but only once a week does it strike me so hard as to interfere with work. I find it has been increasing but slowly.
Would this be covered as PTSD in SSDI?
