Question

but let's say I win at the DRO level. I have multiple physical infirmities and plastic parts that are impacted

now. should i try for the whole thing.....in other words keep the claim to the issues with my 1151 damage, or go for the whole banana. how it impacts and is impacted by my opposing leg (congenital defect). increase in lower back pain (OA lumber and cervical disc problems). etc.

I really don't know the game guys. im not even sure if my nod was post june 2007 (i just read about that opportunity on internet). i don't want to do this forever. i know this 1151 injured leg will mean more severe falls (my second fall last month i broke my nose and cheekbone) and an earlier internment in a nursing home. please bear with me.

i belong to this disabled chat room in aol. i've been visiting this room since 2003. the jury is out about me. some people see me as nice....some people see me as ascerbic. the latter is that dry, sarcastic humor that people in the northeast pick up. (my favorite people are in the midwest--they are the sweetest people on earth). anyway. sometimes i go in the room and nooooobody talks to me. and rejection is one of my weak points. so in that room i started talking to myself. i'd say "how are ya patti" and answer right back. and i can keep this up for a good ten minutes before even i think it's whacked.

the above sorta applies here. im going to answer my own question. i'll settle for my foot. and close the little holes that exist to raise my compensation at a later date.

"thanks for the advice patti"

"you're a nice kid"

lol

For some reason most Veterans who are disabled are like you are described on AOL Chat.

I really don't see how anyone can be judged in a chat room.

i was uncertain of your meaning.

'judging' is a dominant gene in the human race. i have found this in all areas of life. god, love, work, play, scrabble and chat rooms. more often than not, the 'judgement' is incorrect (sans god of course).

  • 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.
    • 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.
