Fighting Back


MikeS

Question

Hi all:

Back in August, when I learned about the ptsd reviews, I felt angry and lost.

I had one bullet ready to end my years of pain.

Since then, I have seen the politicians and the va for who they really are.

They used to seem so strong to me.

They seemed so invincible.

But, from what I have seen over the past few months, I now see them as cowards and bullys.

And, the only way to deal with cowards and bullys is to shine the bright white lite of truth on them.

I now am fighting back by staying in contact with my senator and congressman.

I use the va law and information that I have learned on the hadit.com web site to get my point across in a clear, orderly manner that the politicians and their helpers can understand.

I am committed to using knowledge as my weapon of choice to protect myself and other veterans from the cowards and bullys that hide behind the stars and stripes.

Mike S.

Mike.

You hit the nail right on the head. They are cowards and bullys. Allot of there power depends upon if we give it to them. The way they rigged the system its so they dont have to put forth any rational arguments or reasoning. However the first step is what you did. You really identifyed who and what they are. The second you take them out of there rigged process. They run and hide.

Thanks for your inspiration Mike ... I'm in the middle of some terrible ongoing battles with the VA, yet I feel I'm the only side fighting this battle. The other side (The VA) is even having a problem verifying I even exist. It's doing an awful number on me and my wife's head (read another entry form my original posting yesterday if you care to).

Hanging on by my fingernails here gang. This is why I lost momentum several times in the past when I have asked for re-evaluations by the VA. I feel I must keep on or use that last bullet one day soon.

I'm sorry for being a bummer here. Anyway, Thanks Mike for all you and others do here on this Forum. It's the only thing keeping me going ...

Use the knowledge that is all over this web site.

Don't rely on anyone but yourself to fight your fight.

Why?

Because no one knows your situation better than you do.

But mostly, because the more you fight, the less fearful you will be the next time that you have to fight!

It's the fear, NOT the fight, that will hurt you.

It's your life and the lives of those that you love that you are fighting for.

Besides, Bob, I know from personal experience the wonderful feeling of victory after Berta and Flip gave me the information that I needed to get the va comp that I deserved.

I wish that same feeling for you.

Fight for youself. Fight for other veterans.

Mike S.

    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?”
     
    Note:
     
    • 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
