  1. Just wondering what this might mean on va. gov, comp and pen is showing Awaiting Release of funds- SSD and details show Attorney Fee Memo- AAFC Authorized Award (New). I use DAV as my Rep. I don’t understand SSD, is it possible the DAV signed me up for Social Security Disability? Just wondering what all this means, could be an old lawyer just trying to squeeze more money out of me!
  2. Hi, Does anyone know of a good Behavioral MD in the SE Michigan area I could consult with that is knowledgeable of VA DSM requirements and OIM letter? Thank you!
  3. Thank you everyone for your advice. I have a NEXUS showing a diagnosis of PTSD, Generalized Anxiety, and ADHD. I guess I will have to try and tie the two together for secondary? I am using "Legal Help for Veterans" so I hope I can get this moving and over with, so tired of the back and forth with appeals between the BVA and RO... Thanks again, will give update as soon as I have one!
  4. Hi All, Was hoping I could get some feedback. I just had a C&P for Gulf War Illness Syndrome. Attached are the C&P results. Kind of long, sorry. Anyway, I received the Statement of Case and was surprised to be denied on everything. Especially Sleep Apnea and Hypertension. Also have Osteoarthritis in both hips. I am already collecting 30% disability for Eczema as a Gulf War Hazard since 1998. I am currently appealing PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  5. Wow, thank you so much USMC Vet and Buck! That is very good information but seems like a pain too! But I understand if I want the VA to take notice that's what one must do I guess. What B.S. Unfortunately I've already sent in the Nexus from the M.D. Physiatrist and Psychologist stating that it is as likely as not due to my military service. My claim has been open since 2010 and was at the BVA level for Anxiety and Depression, they noted a Nexus letter for PTSD but my first C&P they did not address it. So the BVA sent back to Detroit RO to give me another C&P. I tell you, this
  6. Hi, Thank you for your post! I appreciate it! My personal Dr. is a MD, PC and Psychotherapist is a MA, LLP, LPC, CAAC. They wrote likely as not instead of more likely than not unfortunately because I don't think she may of understood the importance between the two. I took all kinds of tests and exams so I've just submitted as evidence. The C & P examiner did not really ask me anything, I came prepared and told her what I thought she needed to know. I can't believe that in the beginning of the exam she had marked YES for DSM-5 criteria: Does the Veteran have a diagnosis
  7. Hi All, I just had a C & P recently and found the below in the blue button on Myhealthevet. I would really appreciate it if somebody could tell me what all of this means. It doesn't make sense to me when it comes to the bottom whereas the examiner puts her opinion. I just supplied a PTSD Nexus letter from my personal doctor stating my PTSD is likely as not a result of military service. Initial Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) ---------- 1. Diagnostic Summary --------------------- Does the Veteran have a diagnosis of PTSD that conforms to DSM-5 criteria based on today's
  8. Hi Again, my claim went to Decision & Claims File Dispatch today but my AB8 letter has not changed, should I be worrying that it was denied?

  12. Hi Everyone, I've been a member for a while but don't have the experience to reply to folks questions. With that being said, I would like to know if anyone else out there has ever had their claim go to Pending Dispatch on a Saturday and wanting to know If the AB8 letter gets updated immediately or now? If so, I am screwed again as it has not changed. Am I being too anxious? It's just been so many years and this is the first time for me to get this far and wanted some feedback as to when I should see a change on the AB8 letter before getting the official decision in the mail. Any exp
  13. Hi, I just wanted to know if the AB8 letter will show the results from a decision for a claim that just went to Pending Dispatch, BVA has made a decision and will mail it soon. This just happened on Saturday, April 11th. Should I already be able to see the results on the AB8 letter? Thank you for any input!!
