Hi Skunk,

Have you seen any private doctors for this or do you not have any insurance?

In deed they are Skunk-

please read the reply I made regarding the Reconsidertion request-

I forget-do you have a service officer or vet rep?

Did you NOD the denial on the PTSD-acquired Psychiatric decision?

What was the exact diagnosis you were hospitalized for?

The nexus-what was the specific wording in the decision that they used to question the nexus?

Do you have a CAR or the PH on your DD 214?

Is your DD 214 correct? Are you sure?

Have you ever requested a DD 215 via a DD 149?

They sent my husband 4 more awards/decorations when he filed a DD 149 (USMC Vietnam 65-66)

Here is the DD 149 attached-

Just put Not Applicable to the injustice stuff.

Men and women -the DOD made countless errors on DD 214s during the Vietnam War-

They have made errors on them ever since too-

If you have any doubt at all that your DD 214 is right- send them a DD 149.

I am confused here again-

are you the bi polar vet in other posts under different topic?

Were you diagnosed with Bi polar in service?

Is this what you were hospitalized for?

As I mentioned here before-I have vet friend-bi polar whose claim took 12 years-

I had a hard time getting him to follow my advise on something- he just kept forgetting to do it and FINALLY -this took about 3 or 4 years-to convince him -to do it- he did it and in the long run was awarded 12 years retro 100% comp SC bi polar-from the BVA.

Not his fault but the fault of his disability-

Another thing that we had to convince VA was that the Navy did not understand bi polar when he was in-service ----his VA doctor-who I also knew well- stated this fact in a report---I think I was actually with him once when he saw this doctor fopr therapy-

the Navy thought it was a discipline problem.

It was his first manifestations of bi polar-in his disciplinary inservice reports.

This might be why the VA is giving you different diagnoses here-

what was it they actually hospitalized you for?

wait-I am confusing myself !!!!Sorry Skunk and all here-

Do you get SC comp FOR bi polar?

The VA only makes one comp award for mental disabilities.They lump them all together-

I apologise-I thought they denied you comp on the bi polar-

If the bi polar rating is not as high as it should be- per the VA Schedule of ratings here at hadit- by all means ask them for higher rating-

you want to get the ratings higher then the pension you get and certainly- if you can- apply for TDIU ASAP if you are unemploed.

  • 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.

     

    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.

    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
