Question

I believe I read someplace, that being a Schizophrenic and having a schizoid personality run hand in hand, that is to say, that if you are diagnosed with schizophrenia, it runs true that you would also have a schizoid personality and visa versa. If you have been found to have a schizoid personality, then it follows that you are likely to be schizophrenic as well.

I wish I had printed out this document when I first read it. I think I saved it to my old hard drive, but I lost all the data when the old hard drive failed. Of course my memory isn't all that good either and I could be remembering it wrong.

Does anyone or has anyone ever read anything concerning the relationship each might have with the other?

Having a schizoid personality is a PD. You won't get compensation for that. Having residuals of schizophrenia is compensable. Big difference! You need some kind of disagnosis that says schizophrenia.

If Mother Theresa were to take that damned MMPI test the

results would probably show that she asked Ted Bundy to

rape and then murder her ! The MMPI is the biggest biased

test I have ever seen and I thought VA had stopped using it.

Does anyone know if the MMPI test is still used by VA ? ?

jmho,

I don't think the VA does give the MMPI because it costs money to give it and it costs to interpret it. Better just to have a resident make a snap judgement. The MMPI has all kinds of devices to see if a person is trying to make their symptoms seem worse or less bad. They ask the same questions over and over with slight differences in wording. They give more weight to the less obvious answers to questions rather than the ones that ask you if you see or hear things that other people can't hear. I think psychiatry is just the prescribing of pills these days. I don't see how anyone can really evaluate a person in a 15 minute QTC style exam.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
