    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
    • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

pete53 gave you some good advice yesterday. i agree with him,you need to unwind a tad and let the va tell you something before you twist yourself any tighter. all this worrying is not affecting anyone but you,the va is making a decision and after that decision is made,then you can make a plan of attack. the way it is,you are attacking an invisible enemy, you are second guessing your docs,raters,everyone and they have not rendered decision one yet.

calm down a peg or two, asking a lot of questions about a non decision is wearing you down.

You are going to be just fine. Don't worry so much.

Wait until you have something to worry about.

That is what my doctor has been telling me for 30 years. Has it worked? Absolutely not.

I looked and in Axis 11. I do not see a Personality Disorder, so you are sitting pretty.

The NOS means Not Otherwise Specfied. Just a term to say nothing. It does not add or take

away from your illness. It really just means you have Depression, but not any particular name

of one. Does that make sense. I am sure it doesn't.

Hope this helps you.
