I received a copy of my C&P exams today...........

What does this mean?

Exam #1

"I feel that it is less likely than not that her current back condition is related to the fall in service"

Exam #2

"Based on the available information, I find it less likely than not that the veteran's current depression is secondary to her military experiences."

Does this meant that BOTH C&P's are negative?? :lol:

More likely than not is a more positive outcome....less likely than not is pretty dismal...I would have to agree more likely than not with your assumption. Sorry, doesn't look good. :P

Thanks for the response. I am waiting on my SO to call me to see what the next step is. MY VA Doc says that two issues are service connected. Im thinking that I may just hang on to those.

Yes, that sounds negative, but don't give up. They said a lot worse things about others here who went on to win big.

What you need to do now is see if there is evidence they may have overlooked, or was not presented. Just because it doesn't look favorable, if you can find further evidence it may help. Do you have a VSO? Veterans service officer to help you? You can file a NOD, you have a year to do it.(Notice of disagreement).

There are ways to fight it, and this is the site people here will help you to do it. Make sure you have a copy of your service medical records, and your whole service file to begin with.

This is the starting point. Don't give up, and don't give in. :P

Yes I work with the Texas Veterans Commission. My SO has been supportive, when I have manage to contact him. So yes I have made it this far on his suggestions. He is the one that advised me to get a letter from my VA doc and even wrote a letter asking him to do it. I have letters from that time period that I forgot about that may help me but I need to really read them again. I sent some in that I wrote my mom kept from the time frame which were also submitted on appeal (along with the letter from the VA doc).

I can honestly say that if it werent for HADIT I would have given up a LONG LONG time ago. I come here to get motivation.

On an aside, I was reading through my C&P exam and the psych PA said I was overweight LOL I had to laugh because I have lost around 20 lbs. I tell ya if I wasnt depressed before the exam I sure would have been after. On the flip side, he said I was above average intelligence, so I guess my history of being nerd is still intact now IM just a fat nerd LMAO (gotta laugh to keep from crying in all this...)

  • 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.
