    employment 2.jpeg

    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

"just What Defines Mental Illness..."

Recommended Posts

The man in this video, John Breeding, is a PHD psychologist with a private practice in Texas. A great deal of cutting-edge information about "mental disorders" is coming out of Texas now. Texas was the the first state to implement wide-spread drugging of children in the schools based on the theory that one in five Americans is seriously "mentally ill". It was called the TMAP program. It has failed, and worse, caused countless children to suffer needlessly, but TMAP has also spurred a revolution in thinking about just what is and what is not normal behavior, emotion, and reaction to stress and abuse.

Sorry,

The subject should read "Just what defines mental illness..." I could not find any way to edit the post after it went up. Is there such a feature? Thanks Subvet416

I watched this video and it looks a little more on the fringe than we usually deal with on Hadit. What is your reason for posting this Video? How does it help a Veteran with their claims>

Pete,

This has nothing to do with claims, it is general mental health consumer information. I received 100% P&T in 1980, after six very unpleasant years of drug "treatment", and it took me two more years to learn about orthomolecular therapy and finally recover. Given the choice, I would take recovery over the monthly payments and psychiatric drugs any day, no matter what it cost me.

As it turned out, after I recovered I was never called in for re-evaluation by either the VA or SSD. I presented myself on a number of occasions, but there was no interest in non-drug therapy. So if you have a service-connected pension for a "mental condition" now, you have nothing to fear financially from making a recovery with alternative treatment. If you make more than $900 per month from employment or self-employment, your SSD can be stopped, but you can deduct the cost of orthomolecular therapy, chiropractic care and other alternatives from your earnings as "reasonable and neccessary work related expenses". This way, you can earn the cost of your therapy and it will not affect SSD or the $900 per month you can earn on top of it.

You have nothing to fear from making a recovery from a 100% mental condition because you have been 100% for 20 years. Any other vet who is 100% for a mental condition and starts to work has plenty to fear from the VA.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
