  1. Hello everyone and thank you for accepting me in to the forum. Last year I filed a new claim for Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depression. For the past 3 years, I have been seeing a civilian psychiatrist for my anxiety and depression. She had already diagnosed me with GAD and Major Depression, and I have been on anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, and sleep medication. I was on differing types of the same medications since coming out of the service, but it wasn't until about 3 years ago, that I admitted to myself that I needed mental help, and that is when I started seein
  2. I have been rated 80% with TDIU since 2013. I recently attended my 5 year re-evaluation for PTSD. My exam results showed up on Myhealthyvet today, but I shouldn't get a decision until June or July according to VA.gov. I just wanted to know what you guys thought my rating "MAY" be based on this C&P. Of course, my PTSD and MDD are firing at max speed right now worrying about it. My concern is the part where the Dr says "Moderately Severe" PTSD and depression. I have heard stories about the raters pulling small words like that out and using them for a reason to reduce benefits.
  3. Hello, I currently have a claim, "Pending decision Approval". I looked at my current disabilities, currently rated at 70%. On the pending disabilities that I requested, there is a new one, added a few days ago, "Major Depressive Disorder". I am confused on how this was added, since I did not claim it in the process. I am currently 70% PTSD. Can anyone explain why a claim I filled 3 months ago, all of a sudden has an addition to the claim, "Major Depressive Disorder"? Thank so much all!!!
  4. A Gulf War veteran friend showed me this decision he just received: "1. Service connection for the purpose of establishing eligibility to treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and adjustment disorder with depressed mood is established." "2. The previous denial of service connection for post-traumatic stress disorder is confirmed and continued." "6. The previous denial of service connection for major depressive disorder is confirmed and continued." "9. The previous denial of service connection for anxiety disorder is confirmed and continued." We deter
  5. This is what I would tell any veteran who had symptoms or events in the military involving psychological distress or a post service diagnosis of PTSD. Stay in therapy. Get a service officer and file a claim that results in the adjudication of every post service diagnosis of a mental condition. If the veteran is diagnosed with PTSD file a claim for PTSD. If the veteran has a dual diagnosis of PTSD and Major Depression, file a claim for PTSD and major depression. Make sure each individual diagnosis is adjudicated. If later the veteran is diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder file yet
