Defaming Dr. Bash

Question

my god, the rights i served as a viet nam era vet undemined by a moderator of hadit. im on probation. my posts will be monitored for a week per the pm for complaining about my treatment by dr. bash. in medico-legal terms the man abandoned me with less than three weeks left to file my 1151 claim. i felt his posts were odd and inappropriate. we have been corresponding since august. i wonder if the other veterans who have complained of bash, have also been placed in the monitor category for defaming him.

tonight i am told i cannot defame him.....these represent my opinion and 'we know what an opinion is"

critizing a moderator is a sanctionable offense. well ive been criticized several time by moderators and minimally or did not respond. what is an example of cricitzing? not playing the moderator's game? "i would not say that" as an example, peppers some of my posts. can be viewed in the dr. bash posts. para "he's beloved and helped so many". in essence my opinion doesn't count? this is not constructive to other vets who consider using him in the future. my posts outside of this of the last are closed. the last entry of dr bash 3 was erased several times. i sent tbird a message.....i wonder if it will be delivered.

ok i am making this a visible post so you don't think we are all out to get you. i suggest you spend your time perfecting your 1151 claim and less on your issues of your free speech being denied. remember you are free to leave the board at any time. if you don't like the moderation team or the administration you have every right to leave.

i hardly think you are out to get me tbird and moderator group. hardly. if you have a heart in your body you should be able to identify the shock and grief incurred by being dropped by bash with less than two weeks left to finish my 1151 claim.

deleting my posts about dr. bash shows an unseemly preference and influence that bash has in this forum. if this statement is of the type that you view as criticizing yourself and the moderating team, then you are not much different than the VA who openly robs us of our rights on a daily basis.

no carlie. he agreed to prepare an IME for me. he initially wanted 5000 and then graciously....yes graciously agreed to do it for no cost. i had been trying to reach him via email for weeks...to no avail. he said that people that pay come first, and this is of course fair. however requiring me to prepare my own IME and type the formal document was a bit unreasonable. especially because there was no input from him. i didnt mind the typing, but would have liked some guidance. he sent me early on a redacted compensation and pension claim and i used what i could to formulate my claim. on my end, i was trying to pull together the record falsification and lack of informed consent documentation. i have sent VAOIG hotline...i called two days ago for a case number and none has been assigned. but im not deterred. i believe i have the evidence to prove that the informed consent discussion was never had, and because i spent hours talking with different people in IT and Privacy at central office, they will become my witnesses for the OIG.

i send him my records in October. i was becoming anxious as claim's drop dead date is december 27.

he implied that there were more important cases than mine, which flew in the face of some of the email exchanges that we had. he cut me off and has blocked my email address. he provided me the website and email address of another IME, but this individual appears not to be functioning as an IME. Barson's i believe his name is.

I'll live through this. now it really is a case for an attorney and i hope that i can secure one for the BVA.

I don't believe the case will be granted at the DRO level. and i don't believe this RO has ever decided a 1151 claim. I was going to FOIA for this information....i was ticked not to have this said up front, it has been two years. but the lack of informed consent and falsification of records may be so blatant that i win by default. only god knows.

early on i dismissed the veteran advocate for the claim as he witheld a critical document from an IMO neurologist for consideration in the case. He performed a ncs/emg study that proved I had dystonia. not foot drop assessed by c and p neurologist. i then approached VFW who requested a neurologist appointment and evaluation. i foolishly dismissed them. but i knew i needed a movement disorder neurology specialist (rare as hen's teeth here in maine) to evaluate my case. i finally found one and in june had botox injections and this definitively proved diagnosis of dystonia. i have to have botox every three months for rest of my life.

i was diagnosed with a thyroid mass last month. i tripped (an artifact of the VA treatment) and broke my nose and had lacerations over bridge nose. the local hospital cat scanned my neck an there it was. it is a cold nodule which raises it in the category of cancer. i am awaiting biospsy appointment. i have a malignant fatigue (it is added to an autoimmune disease, fibro and severe major depression which is now recurrent). it is bad timing for all this stress. somewhere along the line this will go my way. for this i am within normal limits certain. there is always that possibility not in my life time.

i guess i answered more than you asked. this is the story. i feel sad now as i end this note. in my minds eye it is going to be dissected and thrown in my face. i gotta get going. there is still allot of work for me to do.

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
