  1. Hello Buck52, Now I'm getting a listed confused. When I was referring to a previous post, I actually meant the first message in this exact thread. This is the only thread I've opened on this matter. I'm not really sure why we're seeing different things. Regardless, thank you for your input. I'm not intending to cause any confusion.
  2. Hello, I'm currently rated 50% for PTSD with specific phobia and alcohol use disorder. I already have all 3 elements and service connection. That claim was closed in June 2019 but I am trying to decide whether or not to appeal for a higher rating. I attached a copy of the rating decision with my first post. Is that not visible? If it isn't, I can re-upload if necessary. Also, I submitted a second post with additional information in response to broncovet's questions. However, I think the post is still pending approval by a mod. If there is any additional info that you need from me, I'll be glad to provide it.
  3. I'm not currently working. At my last company, I was working in the same department for almost 10 years with no issues until a new manager was hired. Me and this manager frequently clashed and eventually, I had to leave. I was counseled by her both alone and with HR involved. I eventually quit voluntarily to avoid the inevitable termination. I did not have an issue with missed work because I was the next senior person in the office and I was needed to make sure the office was running smoothly. That was a big part of my issue with her because I felt like I was doing both my job and her job and the added stress wrecked havoc on my mental health. I quit that job about 2 1/2 years ago and I haven't worked since. I'm 42 years old with no spouse, no romantic relationship, no children. My only friend is a soldier I was deployed with who lives out of state. My relationship with my parents and siblings is fine. The phobia portion of my disability is a driving phobia which makes it hard to have a social life. Even if I was able to make friends or sign up for social events, I wouldn't really have transportation. The public transportation system where I live is practically non-existent and I can't afford to take an Uber or a taxi everywhere. When I received my rating from VA, I was willing to accept whatever they gave me but at this point, I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work. I'm considering appealing it but I just wanted to get an opinion from others with more experience to see if my symptoms warrant it.
  4. Hello all, I was wondering if you would consider my rating of 50 percent to be fair, based on the listed symptoms. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I'm currently service connected for PTSD with specific phobia and alcohol use disorder at 50 percent. I also have a diagnosis of alcoholic cirrhosis. I recently requested service connection for the cirrhosis and some secondary conditions that were caused by the cirrhosis. All claims were rejected as non service-connected. My understanding was that the cirrhosis should be service connected since the alcohol use was related to my PTSD diagnosis. Below I've listed excerpts from my PTSD C&P exam and my claim denial letter. Please let me know if this claim should be service-connected and if so, and what I can do to remedy the situation. Would you recommend requesting a higher level review? If you have additional questions, please let me know. Any assistance would be appreciated.
