  1. July 2, 2019 - Va receives my supplemental appeal with new evidence August 15, 2019 - Given new C&P exam for the condition September 17, 2019 - Awarded favorable decision My appeal was simple and easy. Your appeal may be more complicated.
  2. Reopened my tinnitus claim, and my VSO went ahead and submitted a new claim for hearing loss. Just wondering.
  3. January 2019 - submitted claim February 2019 - C&P exam July 2019 - Submitted supplemental claim with new evidence September 2019 - Awarded 100% non p&t for major depression with an eed of 8/15/2019 Shouldn't my eed be January 2019? I left my job because of this disability in 2017 and have not worked since.
  4. Hahaha I love this place. @Riplip I take antidepressants and I have this problem. I'm not a doctor, but I read on the internet that antidepressants can cause this. I'm in my 20's and this is problematic.
  5. I had my VA doctors write me a letter to fight my proposed reduction. The letter was highly in my favor. There is a directive as well. You may find it interesting. https://www.va.gov/vhapublications/ViewPublication.asp?pub_ID=4300
  6. I have a supplemental claim open. It states, " We dont know your status" and " 1 compensation issue". I called the VA instead and got the status on my claim.
  7. Drove 30 mins down to the VA hostpital just to be told that they cancelled my appointment. I'm angry. I called regional to see why this happened, and now they are giving me the runaround.
  8. @Buck52 I'm dx with Major depression, recurrent with psychotic features & unspecified anxiety disorder @GeekySquid I didn't think that I had PTSD because I never saw combat. My LCSW explained to me that combat was not the only way someone could get PTSD, and that I fit the criteria for non combat PTSD. I still feel a little denial, but everything we discuss during therapy points to PTSD. The funny thing is that she dx me with PTSD and the shrink says it is not true PTSD because I never saw combat. He says I experienced trauma, but doesn't want to call it PTSD. Thanks all for the response.
  9. Hello everyone. Some background info: I have a 70% SC rating for Major depression I'm diagnosed with Major depression and unspecified anxiety disorder. My LCSW said that I suffer from PTSD and that my depression and anxiety are all symptoms of it. She was baffled as to why the VA has not added PTSD to my problems list. Should I even bother with getting this changed to PTSD , or hold what I got?
  10. Is this sentence enough to win an IU appeal? This is a sentence from the letter I received from my va psychaitrist.
  11. @vetquest Am I supposed to do the whole program first, or do I bring them the letter from my psychiatrist? You may not know the answer to this, but what happens if the letter I get from voc rehab and the letter I got from my psychiatrist have conflicting information? Which letter holds more weight?
  12. @vetquest The community told me not to worry, so I'm going to do just that. As for the voc rehab, I don't know if I want to talk to anymore people about my issues. Am I just job hunting when I sign up, or is this more counseling with a psychiatrist. Do you think I may be shooting myself in the foot if I don't go?
  13. I just received the letter from my care team. Will this be enough evidence to stop the proposed reduction and tdiu denial? https://imgur.com/a/NQMl17o
