  1. Ok, I first want to thank everyone for responding to my first question. I appreciate it. Before I ask my second question I want to be up front. I am an attorney, but VA administrative law is not my area of expertise so I don't know shit about it. My resent claim is the same claim I made in 1995. I am guessing they are not going to back date any rating to then, but if I appeal that decision, will I be paid the increased rating while I appeal?

  3. Back on the 14th I had my C&P Exam for my reopened exam. I must first say this is the first time I was asked in the claim form to identify stressors or past stressful events that I participated in while serving. I went in for the exam, it lasted about 2 hours, and I just recently downloaded his report. He marked no for ptsd, but identified three other mental disorders and found them to be more likely than not to be service connected, While strikes me as odd is, he says no to ptsd, but at the end of the report he checked almost every box indicating ptsd? Based on your experience, is this guy trying to help me out, or is he just refusing to find ptsd? also, I was asked nothing in the interview about social or occupational issues that have arisen due to the depression and anxiety. Should I write a letter explaining those issues that seem to be missing from the report, or should I just wait for the decision? Thanks for reading. I look forward to participating here.
