    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?”

  • 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

I was checking my evaluation from my swrink in his progress notes of 01/09/09 and I am not sure of all of it. I would like to have a better under standing of what each means.

Axis I Hx alcohol dependence, PTSD--provisional ?

Axis II deferred ?

Axis III djd, htn, lbp, obesity ( i know what the second and last is )

Axis IV occupational, social support, comorbit, chronic illness ?

Axis V 25

I have filed for an increase in my ptsd claim for 70% or higher with td/iu and was wondering what others think of it. I also showed that I am on SSID and that part of the award for it was because of my PTSD, with Depression and Axiaty.

I have not been given anymore appointments. ?

The VA has you DX'ed with Axis one alcoholism and provisional PTSD. Has your PTSD not been service connected yet? Was your PTSD stressor verified? Do you have combat awards?

Yes I am 50% PTSD with Depression and Anxiety. I know that I misspelled it wrong last time. I didn't know what some of the things meant and weather anyone thinks I have a good chance for increase in %.

Are you employed? If you are unemployable due to the PTSD then you need a doctor to say that in a good medical report. If you are not able to work you have a good chance of getting a higher rating for PTSD. 50% is sort of the dividing line between those who can work and those who cannot in my opinion. You qualify now for IU if you can't work solely due to your SC conditions. I was close to 155's in RVN. Anyone who fired those guns or 105's has my sympathy. I can't see how anyone could fire those guns without advanced protection and not go deaf.
