  1. Thanks for the info and kind support. I do not like computers or technology whatsoever. Due to my severe TBI and PTSD the State labeled me Endagerement to Society that is why I lost my right to own a gun, therefore was forced to retire from law enforcement. I am grateful for the 10k a month I make and my wifes VA check as well. We live a good life, just wish everything would have happened different, and the govt would not have tossed me to the street when i got sick and hurt. I know in reality that i cant work in fact i have a long road of more surgeries ahead of me, just miss being important and a part of something thats all. I really appreciate all the support I have received from the good folks of Hadit all these years. Hope you guys have a good week. God Bless

    Schizophrenia Success Story

    Welcome aboard and congrats my friend. I spent time in the Crazy house back in 2012, not fun to say the least. Glad you made it thru the other side. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless
  3. Only you and your family can decide what is best for you my friend. I am only 36 been retired for 5 yrs now, so I know how you feel. I worked hard to get my 3 degrees, in fact I did not even have a high school diploma when I joined the Navy. Now due to my health I can never work again. I would give anything to feel important and part of something, like when I was in Law Enforcement after the Navy. Now I just spend my days after surgery, looking out the window, wishing I could do more. Only problem is the Govt loves for Vets to give back money that we deserve, and if one day you get worse off, it will be 10 times harder to get the SSDI back. I truly wish you the best my friend, and hope you figure out your life. Good luck and God Bless!!!
  4. So True Buck, the VA always comes up with these crazy programs that on paper and the News sound great. Doesnt work so well to improve or speed up the process in reality. I just wonder how long it will take before Veterans go all out crazy in the streets, cause we are tired of having to fight for what we deserve in the first place!!! God Bless and hope everyone has a good weekend.
  5. Looks like they will continue as stated above. I have had 2 back surgeries in the last year, and actually going to see the surgeon again this week for possible fusion. It took multiple injuries and surgeries to get above 20% on back in my case. The VA really does not like to rate back conditions high, but you can use even the lower ratings to get IU or SSDI if you can not work. Good luck
  6. Glad you made it thru your exams bud. To me it actually looks good. It is very hard for the VA to grant so many Disabilities in a short period of time, so it looks like the Raters are actually doing their job. It takes a lot to get to 100% as you can see by my signature. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless!!!
  7. Congrats on the Great News. Good luck bud, you deserve a break.
  8. Most of the time as we near the end of the year, you will start to see this. Last year I had a claim do the same thing, and within 6 wks it was completed. Try not to get to worked up. Good luck and God Bless!!
  9. Thanks for starting a great conversation. We really never get what we deserve, but at this point in my lift, I'm just grateful if the Govt gives us any kind of raise. It all helps!!! God Bless!!!
  10. Sorry to hear of your issues, and great advice given above. Also you have to go into more detail. What is the Military claiming you did or didnt do? What are you claiming that they did to you? The more info you can give us the more accurately we can try to help you. The rules for Active and Reservist apply different in some situations. Good luck and God Bless
  11. The VA sucks when it comes to Diagnosing, Treating or Rating Back issues. The VA back Docs wanted to install a Pain Pump, kind of Stupid considering I am Allergic to pain medicine. So I went to Civilian side and have had 2 Back surgeries in the last 10 months, those did not work either my friend. Now I am worse then ever. The last surgery damaged 2 nerves in my left leg, so numbness was made worse then before. The VA has a way of screwing Vets by using multiple Diagnosed back or nerve conditions along with lower %s, even if they Grant the Vet the Service Connection. I dont think people or Docs in General realize how much a Human uses their Back for Daily Living. Sorry to hear of your issues bud. Good luck and God Bless
  12. Caregiver is strictly for POST 911 Vets only. If he served in OIF/OEF then he would be eligible to apply. Good luck and God Bless!!
  13. Congrats on the Great News Bud. God Bless and I truly wish you the best!!! Now go give you family a big hug, and relieve some of that pinned up stress. YOU got many bad days ahead of you, but on those few good days, thank God for your family, and all the Great Brothers and Sisters you have on HADIT that are always here for You!!!
  14. Congrats on the Great News, so happy to See Vets climb that Mountain of Crap they call the VA. Good luck and God Bless!!!
  15. Hello Navy04,

    I'm following up on a post and a long thoughtful post you gave to another Veteran much appreciated. 

    I was reading this one: 

    The comment about when you received a denial for about 10 contentions you just turned around and opened a new claim with the same evidence so hopefully the rater(same or differen?) would actually read everything you submit. I just had this happen and because of my right arm which is SC now I'm having a hard time using the PC to read and write and even sit(back/neck)SC etc. So I contacted a local law firm which works with veterans and claim denials etc. for a solid NOD.  I'm curious, and as a DYI Vet also, my first claim got me to 50% and I thought it was equitable, but now learning and reading the rating codes and secondaries and HADIT and it's members has made me becoms more informed. They are trying to deny me out of what I believe I deserve. So my question is when you went back to eBefits route and re-submitted your claim with all the same info they did not re-open the just denied claim? That has me confused. I'm trying to avoid the whole protracted appeals and years of needless waiting. 

    Thanks in advance.
