  1. I would say it would be what you would need help with activities of daily living and the job and accomodations you have. I've never heard of it either. Then again, there are plenty of veterans I know that are 100% Permanent and Total and they are working, so I think anything is possible.
  2. I'm service connected for my right shoulder. However, I injured my left shoulder doing a bench press. My left shoulder came out of it's socket and had to be put back in. Can I add my left shoulder for a secondary service connection or is that a bit of a stretch?
  3. Hey bud, I'm bipolar as well. You might want to look into aid and attendance given the nature of our disorder and how it affects our lives. Just food for thought! Very happy for you!
  4. Has anyone had any successful aid and attendance stories? I'm applying for PTSD/Bi-Polar.
  5. Has anyone had any successful Aid and attendance stories they would like to share? I'm applying for PTSD/Bi-polar.
  6. Has anyone had a successful Aid and Attendance claim and if you did, would you mind sharing your story? I'm applying for PTSD/Bi-Polar.
  7. Well, I would be believe the White house. VSOs only have so much access to information and they not be well versed due to inexperience and lack of education on the subject. I'm pretty sure if you lie to the White house, you're going to be in deep doo doo.
  8. I would love to answer your question but I need a little more info. Is Peggy your VSO or working the DAV or American Legion? Sometimes, they can't see it based off not meeting certain criteria to look at decisions. There's one VSO that I have can see everything and other VSOs can't based off what he's qualified to look at. I hope you have a fair decision!
  9. I had a VSO try to scare me for an increase on my shoulder due to shoulder being injured more seriously. They said it was unlikely they would increase my shoulder. What they don't know, is that I went to Physical Therapy School and I know how to do evaluations. I had my wife help me measure my range of motion and I know I warranted for an increase. BTW, I'm 100% Permanent and Total Schedular strictly due to PTSD. If I had one more 10% rating, I would have had another 60% rating which would have entitled me to Special Monthly Compensation S. They looked at my other rating for an increase and I'
  10. So, I figure this might help you wonder if you have qualify for 100% Schedular P&T for PTSD. First of all, I was 26 when I was put for 100% Schedular for PTSD. I don't advise going down this road unless you're already on it, because once you're on it, there's very little chance for coming off. So, I had a tough time at my job and I was experiencing suicidal ideation. I was initially at 50% for PTSD. I was regularly seeing a psychologist and I really wasn't taking meds at the time. I went to the mental hospital for approximately 5 days. They put me on Quetiapine. Horrible drug! I put on so
  11. See, that's what I thought. I read some forums that there was a loophole. Like, if it was prescribed by a doctor. I heard the VA does do that. I had a doctor who had a three strikes your out policy. However, it's not legal in my state. I only want to take it to help me sleep.
  12. IF my state legalizes medical marijuana, would the VA still prescribe Adderall and Tramadol?
  13. Hey, I'm prescribed adderall for my ADHD and I'm prescribed tramadol for my shoulder pain. If they legalize medical marijuana in my state, could I use marijuana without losing these controlled substances by the VA?
  14. I know a VSO who has a 100 percent rating for PTSD and he's working. I'm 100 percent schedular for PTSD permanent and total and I'm using voc rehab to get a job so I can be a nurse at the VA. The thing is, they define what total occupational and social impairment means. If you fit that criteria and you somehow manage to find a job despite the conditions that define total occupational and social impairment, you should have nothing to worry about. Plus, you can always fight it if they reduce you or find other conditions that you have and get those bumped so that you'll have a 100 percent rating.
