  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

My brother had a rating to 10%. Watch out if you also have arthritis.

I think that they rate by the amount of skin covered and what meds you are using. Don't overlook annual clothing allowance if your meds are greasy ort stain your clothes.

I am service connected at 60 percent for the psoriasis, 90 percent overall. 60 percent is the highest and requires immunosuppressive therapy or being covered in psoriatic lesions.

It has to have been diagnosed when the veteran was in.
