You do know that you are just going to receive one disability rating for you mental rating/diagnosis/disability?

My first question would be: Have you filed for Total Disability due to Individual Unemployability (TDIU)? And, ARE you totally disabled and unemployed?

If so, with your CURRENT percentages, you should fully qualify for 100% TDIU P&T. And that is the route that I would take.

On another note, I'd have to wonder why you are still suffering from insomnia. I mean, are they treating your insomnia? The reason I ask is that I have the same problem(s) and am on a regimen that includes Ambien and I am sleeping better than I have in years.

Also, with all the problems that you are having and you only have a GAF of 60? What with 2-3 panic attacks, inabiliity to maintain personal hygiene, depression, etc., it would seem to me that you would at least qualify for a 40 or 50 at best.

As to your question about what I think the rating board is thinking..................I've never caught them doing that.

just my $.02

It looks good, but based on what the doctor said, I think your GAF should have been much lower.
