In my Exam notes it has an X on:

Occupational and social impairment due to mild or transient symptoms
which decrease work efficiency and ability to perform occupational
tasks only during periods of significant stress, or; symptoms controlled
by continuous medication....

Which I understand to be rated at 10%.

What I don't understand is that in the exam notes it also has:
[X] Depressed Mood
[X] Anxiety
[X] Suspiciousness
[X] Chronic Sleep Disorder
[X] Mild Memory Loss, such as forgetting names, directions, or recent events
[X] Disturbances of motivation and mood
[X] Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances, including work or a worklike setting

And this is what it says for the rating of 30%

Occupational and social impairment with occasional decrease in work
efficiency and intermittent periods of inability to perform occupational
tasks (although generally functioning satisfactorily, with routine
behavior, self-care, and conversation normal), due to such symptoms
as: depressed mood, anxiety, suspiciousness, panic attacks (weekly or
less often), chronic sleep impairment, mild memory loss (such as
forgetting names, directions, recent events)...

Which has every symptom I have except for panic attacks. Any explanation as to why they have the 10% one checked and not the 30% one?

Thanks in Advance!!
