  1. WTH?!?!?!?!? Ok... I got a DAV letter today... Now remember... I claimed for increase 13 Dec 2012... this is what they said (I was originally at 40%) 1) Service connection for radiculopathy, left lower is GRANTED with an evaluation of 10% effective 10 Oct 2013 2) Service connection for radiculopathy, right lower is GRANTED with an evaluation of 10% effective 10 Oct 2013 3) Evaluation of lumbosacrial strain, which is currently 10% disabling, is INCREASED to 20% effective 13 Dec 2012 4) Evaluation of right ankle fracture (previously right ankle sprain(also claimed as right achilles tear)) which
  2. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? WOW!!! I got an increase of 10% to bring my total added up comp of 4 SC disabilities to 50%... I don't know for what yet, just that is what the ebenefits shows... well this morning I wake up to $269 deposited into my account for retro, as it adds up to what I WAS paid to what I AM paid?? BUT I FILED IN DEC 2012... shouldn't it be more than one month retro??? I am so over this program!! Bunch of ninkumpoops who have NO CLUE! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... and they wonder why vets go postal!?!?!?!

  4. I understand what you mean... I'm just more fed up with the hassles of having to prove my injuries to doctors who know what is wrong... I will be seeking an outside PCP as well, hopefully I can afford one under Obamacare... HOWEVER, I did just notice that sometime today my claim is now in "Preparation for Notification"... wow, the power of words, reading what I wrote, I can TOTALLY see what you mean by "reasonable doubt"... I will be more cautious, as im NOT destitute physically, but sometimes I feel I am mentally! (drained that is)
  5. Hey Berta.. Yes I have claimed the Anxiety/Depression... it is what I am claiming now on top of the degrading injuries... as for employment, havent been able to work since 2008, hence why I was denied in 2009 for SSDI... they stated that a percentage of disability with VA does not constitute an automatic SSDI disability... I called an attorney when I re-claimed back in 2012 for THIS ongoing claim and they stated that since I hadnt worked since 2008 (being 2012 at that time), that I wont qualify for SSDI... so, yep... im screwed... GOOD NEWS is that this morning I woke up and I am now
  6. Hey Phillip.. Unfortunately I was denied for SSDI. APPARENTLY I dont qualify for SSDI just because im disabled by the VA standards.. something about the percentage is not about how much you are disabled, but the percentage is of how much it is service connected?? Secondly, that was in 2009... now it is 2013 and I have not worked since 2008.. thus, no SSDI to fall back on... yep, im screwed... Rob
  7. (Note: this is a second "copy-paste" post from Welcome aboard forum) Hey all... I was in the Army from 96-97 (little over 1 yr and 5 months)... I shattered my knee during an FTX in Guatemala, where I tore my patella tendon from my tibia and the tibia shattered in 3 places about 1/4'' from my kneecap, ruptured my plantaris muscle, and small fracture in my ankle as well as a slight tear of my achilles (all in right leg). I had surgery on the knee and plantaris muscle, where they put in a grafting using a "new" technique (I was told I was the 2nd one done in a military hospital) to restructur
  8. Hey John, Yes actually i have seen a private PCP ... though now I have lost him due to ACA... And the Anxiety/depression was included in the new claim as well, that both the VA PCP and my private PCP diagnosed. As for work, no... nobody will hire someone who cant stand for long periods, nor be able to sit for long periods... I have tried, but lets face it... NOBODY hires someone using a cane (though discriminatory) because they see them as a liability (yes I have been told this by 3 employers, believe it or not) Vet or no Vet... The denial stated that I didn't meet the criteria for higher

After 2 months of therapy (still in military) I tried doing
