    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I had a call from my hepatoligist this morning, seems like Im 7 points (207) from being comatose? The Doc called me to see if I was still thinking clearly, or for a IDDM diabetic in liver failure doing the best I can...

Had he Blood draw yesterday right before the Nuclear scan of my heart, the Lab got the resullts to the Doctor this AM and he called me at home and gave instructions to restart the "Damm Lactulose" this will shoot my Blood sugar control? out the window however..

Try and get this from the usual doctors, it might take a week or more just to get the results from the lab,add several days for the Civ doc to interpret the results via "nurse Janice" and I would have been taking a "dirt nap"

There are good things the VA does!! B)

Beating is out of the question, its how long I can last now! Got taken for a "ride at the University" here in seattle. Money talks evrything else is Bullxxxx. I have a Psycholigist who immediatly wants to label me with PTSD. I dont want that as a label, Hepatologist is trying to schedule me at Seattle VA hospital with someone he trusts for meds.

The Psych people keep sending the referral to American Lake outside of Ft.Lewis. That place is a disgrace to America the Psychs there have a country club with "experimental" pharmaceuticals...Not for me , And "rude" Nasty and hardly speak english. Medicare says not to pay the bill till I see itemized billing that has properly gone thru the claims process? Never Heard of a "demand letter for $917 Dols" Keep them posted!! ;)

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
