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

    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

Trauma Recovery Program (trp)

Question

I have an appointment for TRP on February 1, 2010. I know its necessary, but I'm not looking forward to bringing up all these feelings again. It makes me feel like crap the rest of the day. Has anyone had one of these appointments? What can I expect?

I've not heard of a specific program titled "Trauma Recovery Program".

It sounds like one of the PTSD modalities of treatment, like CPT,

Grounding techniques, Living in the moment, etc...

Hi,

Are you talking about an in-patient program?

No, its not inpatient. It sounds like the same thing Carlie mention, but with a different name.

I been though the Trauma Recovery Program and it was better than I thought it would be. It did help with my anxiety attacks. I believe that during your first visit the doctor will plan a specific path with you. For me, it consisted of a weekly group meetings for about three months. I was not there for PTSD, so your groups would be different. Several vets in my group also participated in other groups focusing on PTSD. So, you may have more than one group to be in.

I'm just now seeing this response. Thanks Poolguy. I believe you're right about them planning a specific path on the first visit. I had this appointment today. The doctor had about 2 pages of questions to ask concerning my stressor and my feelings. My head hurts after all that talking about crappy stuff. Hopefully it will help them to better medicate me.

He thinks they may have to increase my dosage ....again.

    • 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...
