  1. [X] Occupational and social impairment with occasional decrease in work efficiency and intermittent periods of inability to perform occupational tasks, although generally functioning satisfactorily, with normal routine behavior, self-care and conversation Symptoms For VA rating purposes, check all that apply to the veteran’s diagnoses: [X] Depressed mood [X] Anxiety [X] Suspiciousness [X] Chronic sleep impairment [X] Mild memory loss, such as forgetting names, directions or recent events [X] Impaired judgment [X] Disturbances of motivation and mood [X] Difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships [X] Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances, including work or a work like setting [X] Inability to establish and maintain effective relationships [X] Suicidal ideation Medical opinion for direct service connection a. Direct service connection OPINION: The claimed condition was at least as likely as not (50 percent or greater probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event, or illness. Provide rational in section c. c. Rationale: Based on the records provided, it is at least as likely as not that claimant’s major depression disorder was incurred during his military service. Furthermore, it was caused by consistent harassment during his military service. The medical records reviewed which include in service treatment records. So this DBQ from QTC has symptoms that meets the criteria between 0-70% in the rating scheduler. My question is that where will this fit as a percentage rating? All opinions accepted.
  2. So I reopened my case for major depression disorder and the VA instead of using the DBQ provided my psychologist, they rather asked me to go in for another QTC appointment for evaluation (second time- 2012/2014). I have already been diagnosed and currently being treated for Major Depression Disorder with psychosis/schizophrenia by the VA. Can someone tell me what the DBQ from QTC means? Am trying to figure out the possible rating decision if am even going to get a positive one. Thanks SECTION I 1.
