Had my C&P and the civilian doc didn't follow the format I usually see posted on here......hard to interpret. I'm thinking it seems to fit a 50% rating...but maybe 70%? Any advice or thoughts?
He does stay depressed on a daily basis with sad mood and crying spells, the
insomnia as noted, poor appetite with a 25 pound weight loss, the
irritability and rage, anhedonia, lethargy and fatigue, some chronic
headaches and passive thoughts about death but no active suicidal
ideation. No psychotic symptoms.
Section V additional symptoms to PTSD: Depressed mood, anxiety,
suspiciousness, chronic sleep impairment, disturbances of motivation and
mood, difficulty establishing and maintaining work and social
relationships, difficulty adapting to stressful circumstances, inability
to establish and maintain effective relationships, and passive thoughts
about suicide without active plan. There seem to be no other symptoms
related to a mental disorder that have not been listed.
The effect of the PTSD and depression on his occupational and social functioning would be causing
deficiencies in all of these areas in that he has been fired from one job
both due to theft and it sounds like to his rage and irritability and
pushing a supervisor through a wall which would definitely not be a good
way to stay on a job. He has also had significant interpersonal problems
in that he has had a divorce and breakup of a fairly long-term
relationship all due to his irritability and his distancing of himself
emotionally from these women and he has been unable to have other
relationships since then other than with his daughter.
