Hi there & welcome to hadit,

How long ago were you separated from active duty and have you ever filed an original claim yet, (VA form 21-526) ?

ETS and DEROS was June, 1970 after 3 tours or 1 tour and 2 extensions from Nam. I have filed a claim using MOPH as VSO, 1st diagnosis with PTSD was in 1987 at Vet Center visited off and on, saw 5 differnt councilers. but had quit going each time because of work conflicts.This time have lost 3 jobs in last year and PTSD seems to have returned stronger, so I am determined to follow it thru if I can but it is getting very agrivating. My Psych Nurse Practioner has just changed initial diagnosis to Chronic PTSD from Severe Depression. I am to have an intake meeting with a lady who has some kend of MA degree on 16 Oct. this Mo. i have also applied for SSD which has just been denied for 2nd time. I don't know whether they recieved change in diagnosis from VA or not but I have asked my Attorney to appeal again.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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
