  1. I posted this early in another thread. I apologize to that gentleman. I have a PTSD exam coming up, and after reading all these different experiences, I'm not sure what to expect for what I'm claiming, or even if I have a claim. I spent 21 years in the Air Force, was involved with the Libya conflict, and deployed right after Sadaam evaded Kuwait. From there, it was back and forth to the sand box until I was medically retired in 2004. What's ironic is none of my claims are for any war time events, they are for on-going mental anguish and pain from other events. I have 3 that stand fast in my head and will never forget. FIRST...1988 I was court-martialed (special) for using the auto hobby shop to replace a clutch in a friend’s vehicle for $95. As stupid it sounds, that’s what happened. I talked about suicide and was sent to see the "military professionals" on this and was closely watched me. They really made me feel like a shit. In the end, my punishment was $1,200 fine, and 1 stripe. Yeap....an Article 15 offense. Don't get me wrong, what I did was wrong, but what they did to me was way over board. I relive those events quite often. I remember the names, days, the suicide thoughts while having that sigma over my head, and for what???? Replacing a clutch? I should laugh about it, but I don't. 21 years later, and I still get stressed and headaches over this. SECOND...1991.. I had a bladder stone operation where they entered through the urethra/penis. Problem is, they only gave me a spinal, and left me wide awake to witness the whole procedure. Legs in stirrups, I had the joy of watching as they inserted one large metal tube, after the next, into my penis until it was large enough to get forceps and drills into my bladder. Why they didn't cut through the side, hell, who knows. Many may crig, many may say WTF. I've had stones since that time and horrified at the fact that if that particular situation happens again, what I will have to go through. The images are vivid and strong as the metal rods are inserted, not to mentioned the damage its done to my sex life and marriage. THIRD...Quickly medically retired in for 04 Rheumatoid Arthritis. (Started on chemo drugs and medical infusions. (rated 30%). Did that until late 07 and switched to other meds. I'm currently seeing a therapist for depression, anxiety, and pain management practices. I've been diagnosed with sleep apnea, ED, among other things that relate to this disease. I never had representation over the year’s, until I moved to TX in late 07. When the DAV looked at my records, they were astonished at how everything was swept under the rug. Live and learn I guess. I’m not a pro at this VA stuff, and any advice would sure help me figure out what I should do. Thanks

  3. Are all C&p examiners rude? I had one Friday (April 23, 2010), and before I opened my mouth to say good morning, I knew this guy would be a joy. From the get go, he complained and was very annoyed of how thick my file was, and kepy rolling his eyes at everything I said. He did not listen to anything, nor did he care. My wife witnessed the whole thing, and she was appauled at the whole exam. I was medically retired, put on methrotraxate and remicade infusions, giving 30%, and have not worked since Jan. 04. Who should be torqued here? Me, or the PA? Sorry all......just venting to anyone that will listen.
