Question

i really can't figure out how to post on thid site and get a reply but here goes--got aletter today from VA that basically says "we're busy with and we'll get to your claim when we can, don't call us , we'll call you--I'm just about homeless, tires of screwing around with the system, got a huge supply of vicodin they gave me, it's the shitty holidays again. the VA just doesn't seem to care, hoping we (I) die or jusr go away. I'm tired of it all.

Pete,

This is a really tough time of year for people with psychiatric problems. If you feel you may be a danger to yourself or someone else ask a family member or friend to stop by and keep you company, or, perhaps, check yourself in to a hospital in order to get your meds stabilized (also could help your present case with the VA).

My wife always has a hard time during this time of year and almost always end up in a hospital, but with meds and my help I'm hoping this year will be different. Just know that all of our thoughts are with you and that we are always here if you just want to say hi or vent about your life in general (if it's too personal then send PMs).

As pete53 said, hurting yourself just lets them win without a fight and I have yet to meet a veteran that would rather not fight...you're better then that.

    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
