Hello Hadit Members, I have not been on here in a very long time. However, I do check in from time to time to read opinions on different subjects. I appreciate all the hard work that members do here. Backstory: Discharged in 1988 due to “other physical/mental conditions. Personality disorder” In 2008 and after 14 years of battling for my disability for neck/back injuries and depression, I gave up after being denied. I didn’t appeal the BVA decision. I was really worn out. I was diagnosed with PTSD due to MST (changed from depression) back in 2007. For some reason I didn’t pursue it. I told someone after it happened and she didn’t believe me so I held it in. Over the years I shared it with family/friends and they ‘got it’ they now understood why I am the way that I am. I heard of a study that was being done by the VA and I was chosen to participate. When told I would be videotaped, I said no. I wasn’t ready. Every time I would start therapy/meds I would stop, I started again last September, it was going well until she kept wanting me to write about the incident. Yuck. I bailed. Praying that I will get the courage to start again sooner than later. I already feel the effects of leaving. However, I have been taking my meds daily and sticking to it for once. I have resigned from my job once already, just turned in another notice last week. They really like me and my work and are looking for something that isn’t client facing. My anxiety ruins my chances of ever dealing with people on a constant basis. I get angry and it’s just not good for the company. Earlier this year, after my youngest turned 18, I decided to file my claim. While gathering evidence I ran across this a letter from my VA physician at the time. I was so worn out I didn’t even read it to be honest. It came after the fact, if memory serves me. He mentioned the things that he was treating me for and the meds that I was taking. The only thing that he wrote was this one paragraph and it made me scream HALLELUJAH!!! “Her DD214 documents “other physical/mental conditions-personality disorder”. In my opinion, it is likely that depression and fibromyalgia, with onset during time of military service, are causing ongoing physical and mental symptoms.” Is this a good nexus statement? In my mind its yes yes yes, but I know that you all have more experience. Your thoughts?
