    Last year I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis a neurological disorder that weakens muscles and other problems. I have had 9 hours of home health care every week since late April 2016. Recently I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands and have lost use to left hand. My VA {CP filled out paper work indicating I needed help with bathing, putting on clothes, securing meals and other daily requirements. My question is it possible for me to get my S Rating increased. My Service Connection is 100% P&T and 30% Pes Planus with S rating. I don't really have a lot of energy to pursue a no win claim. I pay my son $ 400 dollars a month to help out with errands and to take me to Doctors. We also have a maid who we pay $ 650 a month to help with cleaning and othr household chores that my wife and I can't do anymore. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated. PS For those that know me I am getting better but much slower and harder than I expected.
  2. No one can be sure and the VA rarely gives an honest answer. Hope that it is soon. If you get scheduled fr Comp & Pen exam you are getting close.

    CHAMPVA + annual physical

    My wife has used her ChampVA which is tied into medicare now. If Medicare approves Champva as to pay their part.
  4. I was glad that she helped Veterans who asked for it but still mad that Vets have to beg VA to do its job.

    Success! 100% P&T, No Future Exams

    Julie 1975 Congrats you have security many don't have these days. It is hard cause when the VA makes the award it makes it official that you can't do the stuff you used to be able to do and you definitely are starting a new chapter. Since you live in Texas if you own a home be sure and apply at your local Tax Appraisal District for full exemption and if not consider buying a home. In Texas in most Countes it is equal to about 2.5 yo 3 percent of your current market value. Good Luck
  6. My total exemption in Texas equals about 7000 to 8000 dollars. The difference in being able to keep my home.

    2,500 on paid VA leave

    Even the ones who show up at work act like they are being paid to do nothing.
  9. I was skinny when I went into Army. When I got out 30 lbs heavier. I think Army Chow is loaded with high calories.
  10. He should of taken the flags down. It was on VA Property and they warned him

    VA's Peer review

    The VA has more ways to delay a claim than Carter has pills.
