Alert: Ptsd Study Begins!

Guest VetWife Advocate

I forwarded below and got a response from a fellow hadit member who gave permission to send to hadit.com "THE GAMES BEGIN"!!!!

Brenhay@aol.com SENT

The VA, because of the senate remarks and demands, has stated it will not review these cases. Yet, the word I am getting in my e-mails is that they are still calling fellows back in that are at 100% suggesting strongly that they do not miss this review.

He responded:

"....went to that appt yesterday, a bunch of phd's, not a brain cell among the lot of them. No combat or other thing in thye bunch that indicated any real life PTSD.

There was about 15 of us, 5 of them women.

Now we need to go to shit load of appts, implied, mandatory. Plus, drug test for everything, need to know if we're taking our meds, or using street drugs.. NO problem there for me at least. You could see the anger, in the room. Have a feeling. that some of those phd's may end up with PTSD,\.

Need to add, they were acting as if they were addressing a bunch pre-kinder kids.

About half of us are vietnam vets, the others both gulf wars.

Will keep you posted, if you want you can put this on hadit.

I have been called in for a Jaunary meeting with a shrink and I am 100%. However, I am pretty sure that they want to stop prescribing xanax.

Pete you got my attention when you mention Xanax, I have beening taking that for sleep for quite a few years. Whats up about that or is it personal? Thanks and God bless

I don't know for sure. Just the impression that they want to review xanax. I have been prescribed xanax since 1991.

Will let ya know when I know.

    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.
    • 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?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
