  1. no thanks. We can close this thread. I am done looking for help from people.
  2. So I accidentally used the quotes wrong. I can upload more if you need but the findings were basically "insufficient evidence" No job would hire me with an indeterminable injury. VA wouldn't look at it. Been mooching for quite some time living off people. Rather sucks, and I thought I would try looking for help one last time.. My family doesn't comprehend my issue that well and have become tired of dealing with it as well. Never ending. My mother seems to understand a bit. Her father (my deceased grandfather) was a Veteran from WW2 (Flying fortress over Germany) with back problems too. I know my father has an underlying fear that I am just being a lazy ass. Except, it was my hard work ethic that caused my exact back problem. Tired of being looked at like a malingerer, tired of being in debt, tired of being treated worst than someones Foo Foo pet. 1 week for a dog or cat to get an MRI. 6 months they told me at the VA.... As if anyone truly cared. I have been a patient patient of which I am no longer.
  3. Yes I loved Korea while I was there. I wish I could experience it again as a civilian! I joined in Jan 2006 (Post 9-11). Now I have heard that a lot of the bars and juicy plazas are getting demolished. Thank goodness. I actually went from the list (I updated in original post) of drugs: http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2012December17PerroneMedsVAmedsseperate.png To marijuana. Yes, I understand the propaganda on both sides. It works for my spasms, pain, and concentration: my grades show it. http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/Grades.png After 2012, I began to smoke copiously. I still brake at Stop signs so I don't see what's wrong with it. It also doesn't give me hemorrhoids like the other drugs did...

Let me elaborate on any that you'd like. Anything with “Private” means my parents had to pay out of pocket…. The Doctor I used will be revealed when the question is posed "Did your doc just do a surgery for the money?" He's very reputable. I have not worked any jobs other than Military since May 2009. I am UNDER weight and I eat as much as possible. I am 27 years old and I round out to 150 pounds at 6’1”. (Almost below my min. body weight again) I left the military in 2009 at 210 pounds. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Definitions: Spinal Fusion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WID1p_UJZIM Degenerative Disc Disease http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_5U7skcQeM Spondylolisthesis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlJM2kLGwUI Spondylolysis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du8Ch38mP54 Lumbar Pedicle Screw Surgery http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ6XpGzuvg8 Sciatica http://www.spine-health.com/video/sciatica-interactive-video ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I understand I have made many mistakes in this process. Where people say "mistake" I hear "got reamed" so we may need to agree to disagree on the terminology throughout. I posted pictures to help substantiate my claims. I have done my very best at concealing the real sensitive data. I could care less if my name gets known. I just want this issue solved (I have a baby on the way and I am tired of going the direction of useless dead beat. I need an education but school means I need therapy first. Something that has become a burden on my entire family. It is financially and physically time consuming for everyone involved.) The military has released me for medical, re-enlisted me (*cough* high ASVAB scores *cough*) and then threw me out on my ass again. I hope they realize my back is broken, not my brain... Also, my grades in school went from "Being on probation" to "Deans List" and an A.A. thanks to one magical (illicit) medicine. Take a guess... Having an issue with images. I will figure it out soon. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2009Feb17 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Feb17VADenial.png 2009Oct09 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct09MedicalRecord.png 2009Oct15 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct15CATscan.png 2009Oct23 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct23MedBoard.png 2009Oct23 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct23MedicalRecord.png 2009Oct27 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct27Orders.png 2009Oct27 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct27P.1.png 2009Oct27 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2009Oct27P.2.png ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2010Feb10 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2010Feb10VADenial.png ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2012December17 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2012December17PerroneMedsVAmedsseperate.png 2012July19 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2012July19ReservesLOD.png ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2013May05 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2013May05NeuroDoc.png 2013June26 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2013June26JCornynvsVA.png 2013July03 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/2013July03VADenial.png 2013Aug04 http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/EverettWayne_A_P_L_P_Standing.00014C19.jpg ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ (Extra Data) Grades http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/Grades.png Some of my Vaccines http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/Vaccines.png Found letter by my mother, Page 1: http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/MotherPg1.png Page 2 of letter: http://picoolio.net/images/2014/08/04/MotherPg2.png
