  1. But I believe in the examples that you gave that they were 100% schedulers whereas I am TDIU. Do you think that makes a difference?
  2. I am currently 70% TDIU P&T for PTSD (mst) and Bipolar. I was thinking about writing a book about my experiences in the military and was wondering if it could affect my TDIU if I were to make a little money off of it. I suppose I could make the book free, but could even writing a book affect my disability pay? There is no way that I could go back to work at this juncture of my life and I doubt that I ever could. And I don't know for sure if I could even write a book. And even if I could that anyone would want to read it. It's just an idea that I'm kicking around. Thanks.
  3. Please contact me! I have a similar story and just started this process :)

  4. I am overwhelmed by all the responses I have gotten and I want to say thanks for ideas but more importantly sharing your stories. It is good to know your not alone. I think this MST section is a great place to share. I haven't found anywhere else to do that. I looked at vetwow.com and it seems no one is running that site anymore but it does have good info on claims. But back to my original issue. It it is hard enough to find yourself a disabled vet. But even worse is their are so many with PTSD that no one will ever understand. And so many more that don't know about rape in the military
  5. How do I find out more about this? Do I contact my local VA medical facility?
  6. What kind of dental do they cover? I have two missing front teeth
  7. How do I get the address of the Designated Claims Intake Center?
  8. I am currently TDUI and have not received a form to fill out. I guess it's the 21-4140 Employment Questionnaire. Is it necessary to fill out...this is my first year. Also where do I mail it to. If it helps I live in TN... Sorry computer was lagging and hit submit again so this is a duplicate. I am really really sorry

  11. I wanted to say that you're advice has been really good and I appreciate everyone who responded. My biggest thing is all of you are USMC, Army...people can believe that something traumatic happened and leave it that. But how does a woman in the Navy on shore duty in Hawaii explain that I have had a traumatic experience? I guess that is my biggest fear...I don't want people to find me out. Or start assuming that "the only reason she could have ptsd is by being assaulted...does that make any sense to anyone? I guess it's like what DarkAngel said " I quickly learned that all I have to say, I
  12. It's been awhile since I'be been on this site but I need some guidance and knew this was the place to get it. HADIT helped me so much with helping me to win my claim. I am 100% for MST and was also in the Navy and female. I received TDUI due to my symptoms and I don't know how to handle it. At first I was elated, now it's been awhile and I have guilt about getting 100% when so many people are fighting the system. I guess it's winner's guilt? But here's my real problem with all of this. Because I'm 100% I have Disabled Vet plates and I don't work. People ask what do I do and some closer friend

  14. I too have Bipolar and PTSD. They considered my Bipolar secondary to the PTSD. To answer your question they take both of them into account and how they affect your daily living. My initial rating was 70% PTSD. I applied for TDUI and I believe they took the fact that I am Bipolar 1 with rapid cycling into account along with the PTSD. It's hard enough to maintain a job with PTSD let alone cycling every 6-8 weeks :(
