  1. Hello, I am currently rated at 70% for PTSD and have a gambling addiction due to my anxiety and depression and gambling numbs my emotions but is having a heavy toll on my family and life. I have blocked myself at casinos but online casinos are very easy to access I want to stop gambling and wanted to see if the VA offers this type of support? Also, does the VA give ratings on gambling addiction? I really want to stop but am so depressed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I am currently rated at 50% for PTSD and just had my C&P exam for an increase. Below is my current C&P results. Also I suffer from Major Depression and Erectile Dysfunction due to my medication. Could these two items be filed as secondary since the examiner did not list them in my C&P exam.Any input would be appreciated on to what my outcome may be. Thank you SECTION I: ---------- 1. Diagnostic Summary --------------------- Does the Veteran now have or has he/she ever been diagnosed with PTSD? [X]
  3. Yes, it should be compensated still. Meds do not make PTSD go away, it just numbs it. The VA has a list of what your symptoms should be for the required rating. http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/how-the-va-rates-service-connected-mental-disability.html
  4. After looking at my C&P results, the examiner left out a lot of my symptoms. I also typed up a letter for the VA explaining all the problems that I am having including the information from my primary doctor. I hope that take those other items into consideration because it annoys me when the C&P examiner does not include all of the problems that I am having.

  8. Thanks for the info. vawatchdog really needs a new website. lol
  9. So should I file an appeal or should I file a Notice of Disagreement if I disagree?
  10. Thank you sir. Sorry for all of the questions, I am new to this and still learning and educating myself. Thanks again. :)
  11. Do you think I should try to request P&T for my PTSD since I have had it for over 11 years now even though I was just awarded disability for it ?
  12. I just got my envelope in the mail with all of the information. How do I know if this rating is permanent. The incident that I am receiving benefits for now happened over 10 years ago. Thanks.
  13. The amount for 31 Dec is a little over 1500. Does COLA factor in where you live or is it all the same? The amount I should be getting a month is 976.13
  14. The one that shows for the 31st is 500 more than I should be expecting and it also says RETRO next to it. Not sure.
