Single Status Update
I am resting,,, sick, but ok.... paid some bills, taking care of things at home. Play on computer, walk the dog. Take morphine for continuous pain. I hope everyone is ok. Not sure if I want to continue the war the va put me in. It is too much... I found out a lot of things they weaseled out of through 'Administrative Trickery' coined by a woman who does legal stuff fighting the va. I am not sure of who knows about this stuff hidden you do not find out until they pull it out and beat you down with it. Like hidden clauses, where you think you won, but they put clauses that basically say if you won by this method you do not qualify for these benefits. So, basically an 1151 win is not a full win, they withhold lots of key benefits. Who knew? Who knew they can deny a date you file and use some trick language that says that date is not going to be used. Yes, they did that, they cut several years out of my filing dates. Yes I have the stamped papers that clearly shows the filing dates. The list goes on, but the cost maybe my death from the hell it causes on a sick person with the va beating you down. I am at a crossroads, with just fading away with some level of peace, or trying to continue to get wrongs righted. Those that have yet to get through the war, be warned they have a large bag of tricks they do not let anyone see until they hit you hard. After all, it is the way of life in those building to screw over the claims. Are they on commission?
Keep Fighting never give up
YOU SHOULD REQUEST to see a judge at the BVA, THERE YOU CAN TALK TO THEM TELL THEM YOUR STOREY AND ADD ANY NEW EVIDENCE YOU HAVE .
THESE VETERANS LAW JUDGES LISTEN TO US. (THESE HERINGS GIVE VETERANS A CHOICE RATHER OR NOT TO TRAVEL TO YOUR R.O. OR SIMPLY DO IT VIRTUAL WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL.
BUT MOST OF ALL HAVE YOUR EVIDENCE READY EVIDENCE SPEAKS LOUD AT THE BVA...CHECK MY POST OUT ABOUT A VIDEO A LAW JUDGE MADE AND WHAT TO TO DO, WHAT TO BRING & WHO AND WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR BVA Hearing
THEY DO RECOMMEND YOU HAVE AN ATTORNEY OR VSO, OR A CERTIFIED ACCREDITED VA CLAIMS AGENT TO REPRESENT YOU..
My paid legal rep says he wouldn't try any more. I am not sure why, as the filing were clearly received on dated several years before the date they gave me for the start of benefits. I filed in 2009 (I was in the hospital 6 months of 2008, too sick and could not go anywhere, in bed or wheelchair the rest of 2008, then my DVA rep left his job and I could not get help with my claims until 2009, but they started the benefits date in 2012. I left off in a conversation here about a possible 'CUE' to get the date changed to when I fist refiled in 2009. But my legal rep (whom gets 20 percent of anything I win) says he 'would not continue with pursing the date change in benefits, but I can do it on my own'.
I know I can send it to the va, but as far as I know it was all closed and settled with the BVA when I accepted and did the deal he made with the va. of course I took the deal 100%, but the date of the start of benefits should be when I first filed. I do not know my rep would not continue, I am confused. I can no longer fight this stuff. I really am going downhill with the ability to think and fight the va. I am not even sure which part of the va I would send a cue or fight the date they yanked out of the air. I know this sounds paranoid, but I am kind of afraid they might find a way to screw me if I continue the fight. That is the state of mind I am left in. I need to go rest, I woke up sick, at 4 a.m. Anyways, thank you for the support. On a day when I can think better, I might try to figure out what to do.
