  1. I'm starting to think the scammers are getting more sophisticated all the time! Earlier today, I was researching NOVA attorneys online (collecting names & contact info), and even called a couple of them. Then, suddenly received an unexpected call from some woman claiming to represent a 'veterans advocacy group' called "Disability Health Group," who claimed I'd filled out an online form (er, NOT!), and said form sent them my information via email. I asked her 'who sent them the email,' and she hung up, so I figured it was a scam call. Couple hours later, she called back (same caller ID number: "720-704-7978"--a Colorado number, similar to mine), saying the same thing. To be on the safe side, I simply told her I prefer to make the contacts, myself, as there is no way to vet cold callers over the phone. I ran a couple of Internet searches for that 'business name,' and nothing came up, either time. I certainly hope no one else responds positively to such scam calls! Please, just tell them you can't vet them over the phone, and any legitimate business will understand. Stay safe out there, people!!! The Internet can pose more danger than we know!
  2. Charlie, I ran a search for her name (Judy Donegan) at the CAVC website, and her title has changed to "VA General Counsel," which is how I discovered she now works for the enemy. Ran it again, and here is the result, again... http://search.uscourts.cavc.gov/isysquery/91a2d472-41a4-4244-a30a-a360cb0ad9df/-datetime/sort/ Of note, the 'copies to' address is to Judy Donegan, VA General Counsel. Her official title gives her away.
  3. Thank you, all, for your help & suggestions! To '63Charlie,' Judy Donegan may have helped you, but she appears to be serving as the VA General Counsel now; not sure she'd be interested in representing a veteran against her bosses. I'll keep looking, though, and thank you for the suggestion. --Cat4Christ777
  4. Served in the USAF from 1990 to 1998, in law enforcement. Diagnosed with early Menopause in 1998, which sparked an unfulfilled Endocrine consult. Blood test revealed pituitary gland/endocrine issue. Claims in both 1998 and 2021 were both denied, with the VBA claiming it wasn't 'Menopause,' but "oligomenorrhea" (menstrual irregularity)--completely disregarding medical evidence to contrary--subsequently suffered uterine prolapse, which required full hysterectomy in 2016. I know the early menopause was due to extreme stress (19+ hour shifts, very little sleep, sick all the time, etc.) in service. Menstruation stopped completely by May 1999. Regardless, there was actual medical diagnosis of Menopause, but VBA ignored it, twice. According to 38 CFR Section 4.116 Schedule of Ratings under Gynecological conditions, menopause IS a 'disability,' with a rating of 50% (after loss of creative organs from hysterectomy). Honestly, what does it take to get them to accept reality??? Last denial was September 9, 2021 (and did not even send me a decision letter). Had to call them to get them to send it to me via email. Who wins these things, anyway??? I know I need to find a good attorney, but I am so angry and hurt, I can't think straight. Please, I need some hope. Has anyone actually won their case for Menopause? Please let me know! Thanks in advance! --Cat54Christ777
