  1. Thank you Ddsr, this is very helpful, I am putting together a file to help my beloved husband should I predecease him. He knows the local VSR but as we all know: best to do our homework and not rely solely on the VSR. Multiple sclerosis (MS) has no cure...but they have medicine to "help" with the symptoms. It is classified as a medical mystery disease. I am P & T---15 years. Anyway, the info will be going into the file for my hubby, thank you again. H
  2. Hard to believe it is August 2020, time goes too fast. I am hanging in...I hope my fellow Veterans are doing ok. Have a nice rest of the summer.
  3. Hi Buck52, You are right...they ask just from routine. When the nurse asked me about it I went into "what are they gonna try to do to me now-ville" which is totally outrageous. It is a good idea to get one, I think I may need a booster. Better to be safe than sorry. Thanks Buck52. H
  4. Thank you Berta and MarineCpl for your thoughts. Much appreciated. Have a nice Friday and a good weekend.
  5. Hi, Hope all is ok. Is it SOP for the advice nurse to ask when your last tetanus shot was when you want to be checked out for a minor blister? Seems odd but maybe it is just me. Take good care.
  6. Happy July 1st fellow Veterans. Wishing you all a good month. I want to wish a Happy Fourth of July (in a few days) to all and I hope I do not offend anyone; certainly not my intention.
  7. A virtual hug sent your way. This too shall pass (isolation.)
  8. I am hanging in here. I hope all is ok with fellow veterans. Stay safe.
  9. Hello Gentlemen, Thank you all for your advice and empathy over the death of my friend, I am much appreciative. Broncovet: yes, this was the 2.5 year appeal I was waiting on. Increase for one contention was denied. But the 60% was restored. The numbers still do not add up and I am OH SO VERY WARY off dipping my toe (so to speak) back into the appeal pool again. No pun intended but I have HAD IT. Hamslice said it best: "you will get nothing and like it"
  10. Hi, I am really, really, really trying to have a good month. I "lost" my request for an increase although someone saw fit to restore the rating for which I am grateful. But waiting for 2 and a half years? It makes no sense. I have gone over the situation time and time again...all to no avail. This makes zero sense to my husband as well. The numbers do not add up and I am at a standstill. On a positive note: it is a warm-ish day and the sun is out, Thanks for the "listen". Take care. I have asked myself what lesson is to be learned from this and the only thing I can think ,of is to NEVER GIVE UP even if you are not enjoy victory. Several intense situations were going on, one is my best friend died. Too damn young. She passed out at her job and landed on her face. Co-workers called 911 and she was in hospital. The doctor told her she had pulmonary edema. But, those rat bas%$#RD doctors missed KIDNEY CANCER which then spread to her lungs. It has been difficult to accept her death. I can still see her at my dinner table eating her fave pizza. My husband and I made her a special dessert which she loved. She had a great diet (except for an occasional sweet treat), no smoke, no drugs, no alcohol. She was a wonderful person and I miss her.
  11. Hi, It is hard to believe it is May 2020. Lets all have a good month.
  12. My rating was restored. After two years of stress, worry, putting in for an increase was sadly a waste of time. No retro and a separate category was ignored. A travesty and a waste of my time but my proper rating was restored. Cold comfort. I read the letter four times and so did my husband. We dragged out previous years of documents and more questions than answers appeared. Thank you ALL again. Restored and ignored...who can ask for anything more?
  13. Gentlemen, Thank you all for your info and thoughts. Here's what happened: after filing for an increase a little over two years ago for worsening multiple sclerosis a rater decreased my neurogenic bladder. Huh? Really? Seriously? MS is a disease with no cure and only gets worse. The bladder is affected in 90 percent of MS-ers. I am one of those MS-ers. The C&P was a disaster. After a few months of soul searching (and much to my husband's concern) I filed an appeal. Since I am rated P & T for seventeen years now some creative accounting occurred. However, this decrease was incorrect. Hence I filed the NOD. A few weeks ago I checked Ebennies (having been told by everyone and their uncle it is not accurate) and much to my surprise the old percentage was back. No BBE or BWE yet. Of course Peggy will not say anything. So I wait. Ebens says my case is closed. The hubs and I are of the opinion I will not receive anything. Thanks again guys.
  14. Hi, Has anyone ever heard of the VA granting an appeal and increasing the percentage but not giving retro? I know the VA can do whatever they want. Thank you.
  15. April 2020 already.
