Thank You Ms berta
Well I go in tomorrow (8-31-16) to see what they found out?...little nervous, but I'm thinking its just some type mouth sore and not that old nasty word Cancer...keeping a good Attitude.
Hard My PTSD is through the roof. eh!
Many Thanks from all of you guys I appreciate it.
PTSD Diagnose needs to come from a VA Dr , MH psychiatrist...I don't think they will take a Private Dr for the PTSD dX?
IF THIS IS A SPECIALIST DR in the field of psychiatric evaluations then maybe? not so sure?
Take most of your medical records & STR's any unit reports ..ect,,ect,,with you to the exam...stressors take CIB if you have it?
if not then something of record with your name on it puting you in a location hostile enemy territory in fear for your life...you may need them? unit and location from Nam. if you have a CIB or combat ribbon on DD-214 then your stressor's is waived.
organize them the best you can/ because some times the VA don't send all the records of evidence to the examiner..just be honest is the main thing be sure you can back up what you say.
if this goes South then you can NOD the decision. work with the VA MH Dept get therapy/counseling from them for PTSD& Especiallity a PTSD Dx it will all be documented , if you have a MyHealthyVet Account then go to your progress Notes make copies of anything that will help your claims. you can use it as evidence.
ITS PROBABLY TO LATE NOW THO....Good Luck at your C&P
As for as what to say just answer his questions honestly and let him know your in treatment ,add lay statements from your spouse your change in behavior after you got back home ect,,ect,,, , however a PTSD Dx needs to come from a VA Phyistrist ..They don't accept a private PTSD dx
this is PTSD probably going to be denied for that reason.
