Don't Do As I Did!



Well I am actually handling this pretty good. With my PTSD and memory issues and all the physical junk it takes me a while to finish things. Seems I have more things half way done that anything!

Anyhow this morning I finally bolted myself down to the computer and finished my application for SSDI. I have been out of work since April of this year so I have not prognosticated to much. Anyhow finished the damn thing and came to the page where they ask you to print this and print that to bring with you to the office or mail. I was so anxious and glad to be done with it I hit the close button instead of submit! Don't ask me how I get confused like this pretty regular anyhow I wanted to warn others because I called the SS and they said there was nothing to do except start over!!

I hope it doesn't take me 3 weeks like the last time!! grrrrrrrr!

Have a nice day!

Or, don't do as I have done.

See, I have this cat. I call her psycho-cat, for a reason.

Seems she suffers from a lack of self-esteem (she's not a very good mouser and she's kinda ugly and overweight).

Anyway, so she jumps up on my desk while I'm typing.............and plops down on the keyboard, seeking reassurance and attention.

Stuff that I'm typing goes to la-la land.

Oh well........................I love the old girl.........even if she has "issues". :rolleyes:

still- I feel ya.

Even when I finished that form online and printed it, it came out weird and didn't have info from the fields I would like to have (since my memory is Also not golden).

I believe there is a feature to save where you are at and come back later; I recommend using that periodically to 'save' your info before submitting.

Can't begin to tell you how many times I've hit the wrong button, or had an electrical outage, etc. while in the middle of an important document or online form! All my work, down the drain! Will I be able to remember how I worded everything? It was perfect, now it's gone! Due to these issues, I do as Notorious Kelly does and save my documents numerous times while working on them. Online forms are another story. My heart goes out to you...I know how irritating this is!

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit 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
