  1. Hi Paul, You sure got that right. I am keeping my appeal in legacy and I am a ways into my second year. Lesson to self: if my service-connected disease gets worse do not EVER apply for an increase. Sorry to sound bitter or cynical but that is how I see it. Plus when I have the RO that I have...it does not help. Balderdash is the only word I can think of to describe it.
  2. I hope the Hadit family is doing ok. I know fellow Veterans have been waiting on appeals longer than me but I am very disheartened as to how the system "works". I will keep hanging in and I will never give up. I just had to vent. Have a nice weekend.
  3. Hi Vetquest, Thank you for asking about my MS---it slows me down and forces me to be super careful with everything I do. I keep a positive attitude. I hope someday the cause will be found and then a cure. In the meantime I wait for my appeal to be sorted out. Happy New Year!!!
  4. It is hard to believe it is 2020...my oh my where has the time gone? We stayed home (as we always do) and watched the telly. It was quiet until folks shot off round after round of ammo in the dry river bed across the road from our place. Good wishes for all in the coming year!!! Cheers, H
  5. The VSO I deal with pushes this---not a bad idea. I hope all had a nice holiday if you celebrated. Still waiting for my appeal to be set right.
  6. Do not give up, Vetquest is correct in that the VA wants you to give up so NEVER give up.
  7. Hi, GBARMY, ShrektheTank1, and allansc2005, Thank you all for your kind words and advice. It means a lot and I appreciate it. ...to old friend allan: I have an appeal active (in my 20th month now), and as I am pretty sure you are aware MS is a mystery disease with no cure. This current cluster F situation began in 2017 when I could not walk; I literally woke up and my legs would not cooperate. My husband had to carry me to the bathroom and then we went to our local ER so I could have the Prednisone infusion for 3 days and Prednisone pills to take home. I still have an exacerbation that is hanging around (AKA natural disease progression), anyway, it took a few months before I decided to put in for an increase (seems like a reasonable and rational thing to do) BUT NO, I have had nothing but problems. I have a urologist now and he is a retired civilian urologist from another county (contract physician); he is nice and explains things. So, I hang in and I will never give up. Thank you all again. H
  8. Hi Shrekthetank1, I brought all of my paperwork and he did not want to see it. Sometimes it seems you just can't win...but I will never give up because as one in the Hadit family said "if you give up they win". Thank you for responding to my post.
  9. I am so frustrated by this...is it my figging fault I had trouble understanding a C & P examiner not from THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (no offense to foreigners) and now I am stuck in appeal h e l l ? Thank GOD for HADIT.
  10. Hi Baezivy, I wish I had more concrete information for you but an appeal will take as long as it takes. If I could offer advice it is to keep on top of your appeal and never give up.
