  1. Thank you all so very much for the great advice. I did end of having Six C&P Exams today, I’m exhausted mentally and physically but I did receive your advice and turned in my spouses pay statement. My experience today was much different that I thought it would be. The first appointment was terrible I was 15 minutes early and the Gulf War general medical exam really didn’t go well at all. She was 30 minutes late so I had to sit there for 45 minutes wondering why was going on. I wrote down all the notes on the Dr and how she had no idea why I was there didn’t even read file until I was in the room. I was really hoping not every one was going to be as rude as the first one and thank god that changed. She told me the lay statement from my wife was worthless and I shouldn’t even bother. She did zero DBQ’s because all of my problems were not under her specialty thank goodness. The next 5 appointments were great all of the doctors did their due diligence before seeing me and were much more comfortable with talking to me. I had everything on each claim in color coded folder and tabbed for each specific incident as well as current diagnoses as my VSO recommended to keep everything organized for them. The Doctor my PTSD actually told me she thought it was a great idea and even read it right then and made a copy then asked me to please submit it to VA intake as well just to be sure they receive it. All of the other doctors read the her statement happily and asked me to submit as well as they thought it help my claim and if it doesn’t it will not hurt it. It too me awhile to get the courage to do this thank everyone for your words and wisdom. Sig
  2. Thank you both, I will submit it. It’s a letter that covers everything I’ve claimed. 16 things all together from PTSD to all injuries from head to toe as well as my deafness. I didn’t know she was going to write it until today. If I submit it as evidence will that make my FDC, a normal one? As things have moved extremely fast in my claims. This is the first time I’ve been through this. Submitted 30 days ago and have 4 C&P exams this week. Sig
  3. Good Evening, My first time posting here, I have bunch C&P exams coming up midweek this week. My wife randomly decided she wanted them to hear what she had to say but is unable to make it to Exams. So she wrote a letter. Is this something I give to the person conducting exams? She insisted that i do this and would like to know the right way to do this. Sig
