  1. I have an update. First Claim: Entered December 2014 (This is award date given) First C & P: 4/06/2015 Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015 Prep for Notification: 4/15/2015 Claim Closed: 4/16/2015 Brown Packet Arrived: 4/20/2015 Backpay in Bank Account: 4/20/2015
  2. My claim updated again. It moved very fast. First Claim: Entered December 2014 (This is award date given) First C & P: 4/06/2015 Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015 Prep for Notification: 4/15/2015 Claim Closed: 4/16/2015 I was awarded 100%. Next review is 2020. I know I should be happy but for some reason I am worse today than before I got the news. I have an appointment on the 23rd and will ask to be committed until I am on proper medication. Good luck Valhalla on your claim.
  3. Today it moved to Prep for Notification. First Claim: Entered December 2014 First C & P: 4/06/2015 Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015 Prep for Notification: 4/15/2015 This does not bode well that it moved so fast. I am near breaking point and this month may be more then I can handle.
  4. I checked Ebenefits and it just changed to Prep for Decision. I know it can still be kicked back to gather more info but do not think I have any more info to give. The estimated completion date was 11/2015 to 5/2016 before and after update it changed to 05/2015 to 11/2015. A little time-frame on my claim so far. First Claim: Entered December 2014 First C & P: 4/06/2015 Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015 When it changes I will update the above for the good or bad. It all depends on how my C & P went.
  5. Some generics are pretty cheap so if needed I do not mind paying for them myself if I have the option of picking them up at a different location without VA paying for them. I just will just need to find out how much they cost then. Thanks for the response. I will ask what my options are when I go see the doctor next week.
  6. I had my C & P on April 6 and they wanted to commit me to the hospital until I got on meds and they got them worked out. Short story is I have no social contact other then when I go to the doctors because I feel I am dangerous. Any confrontation and I fear I would loose what is left of my sanity and harm others. This scares me but have been avoiding taking medication but the last week has been much more stressful so am now willing to begin taking meds. My issue is I do not want the VA to send me the meds in the mail or get the meds at a VA/gov location. I do not trust them and like
  7. My aunt has schizophrenia and always thought it was hereditary. She is the only extended family member or person i know with a mental illness and that was what I was worried I had. Talking to my mother about it she told me my father could of had it so assumed she knew what she was talking about. IE; I assumed she knew for a fact. So I told my psychologist my father had it and my primary doctor. A few weeks ago talking to my mother I discover the only reason she thought my father had it was because I had it and she thought it was hereditary and she knew she did not have it. No basis othe
  8. Thank you for the info. I had it and it was at the Columbia location. I am glad its over with and I am mentally exhausted and drained. I wont be leaving my room until my next doctors appointment on the 21st and will avoid even family until then. The doctor was very thorough and it lasted around two and a half hours. I was glad too explain everything and I gave info that I am normally afraid to share because I rather people not know what goes on inside my brain. I do not even tell family, but I knew I had to unload it all if I want help. I will be going over everything I said for the
  9. I have my first C & P appointment and am a little confused on the location. I want to make sure I go to right spot so I do not miss my appointment. This is how my letter looks: Dear XXX XXXXXXX You have been scheduled for the following Compensation and/or Pension Examination(s) at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veteran's Hospital, 800 Hospital Drive, Columbia Missouri (65201) Edited etc. Now what is confusing me is it list Harry S. Truman Memorial Veteran's Hospital and its location then it mentions the ABANES Clinic and other codes i do not understand. May seem
  10. Normally will take 2-3 months before the initial decision is made which is often a denial unless substantial medical files to back up claim. If denied the appeal process will begin. 8-16 months is the normal wait time to have a ALJ hearing. After which 2-3 months before ALJ decision even if Judge stats a favorable hearing. Then anywhere from 1-3 months on average for benefits to start. I will use mine as an example: Initial Filed: Early January 2014 Denied: March 2014 Appealed with Lawyer: March 2014 ALJ Hearing:
  11. Yes. I appealed and had my ALJ hearing. Still waiting on the results of that, though the lawyer and my psychologist says I have nothing to worry about and I will get approved. I think the judge said I was approved during the hearing but by that time I was mental drained and could not follow the what was happening. The hearing lasted over an hour which I was told is normal with that ALJ judge). This was 2 months ago and I was told it would take anywhere from 3-6 months before I would get my decision from the judge. The denial of my original application came before I was diagnos
  12. I am unsure what my medical records from the time say. I tried getting a copy but for some reason I never get them. I did file (thought it was for something else) and I have a C & P in early April. My VA psychologist has me listed with Schizophrenia and as psychotic disorder as well as many other conditions. The first time I was hearing my medical records was during my SSDI judge hearing and most of what I heard was new to me and much worse then I thought. My SSDI lawyer likely has all the paperwork, but unsure if I can ask him to make copies for me. Its likely too late to get copi
  13. Hello, I was wondering what my chances are for my claim. I feel guilty even applying but a VA nurse sent me to some office and I applied thinking it was for help with my SSDI case. At little background. I joined the US Army right out of high school and completed basic training and AIT without issue. I spent the rest of my enlistment without issue up until I had a mental break after my 3 year mark. In October of 2001 I broke down and attempted suicide. I felt everyone was out to get me, depressed, and overwhelmed. I sliced one of my wrist and took all the medicine I had (which was
