C& P For Emotional Health



I was really scared and anxious leading up to this day. I tried keeping busy and went for a couple of runs to clear my head. On the day of the exam I was really feeling sickly. Just nerves.. The examiner was a female and friendly. "Deep breathe"... First question dealing with my condition and the tears flowed. Great I thought. But the questions got easier even though the memories never do. So I basically cried and answered. With my conditions I feel like a total basket head, thoughts of suicide yes (it's nice being asleep and not thinking about anything), thoughts of harming others (repeatedly) (yes, scared to death I would hurt my children or even someone driving down the road). I feel and felt awful! It is the hardest to tell what you feel because inside my head I feel worthless to even think about the thoughts and ashamed for having them. It was a difficult time to go back and forth and how the condition began to where it is now. Because there seems to always be residuals with it. Some days are better than others, some it is constant. After the interview with questions about how it affected my job, my family support, my parents etc... it was over. She tells me that QTC will put together the package with my other physical issues and submit it to the VA. She said it is her job to evaluate me and I my emotional status is basically what I have claimed to have. I should hear from the VA in a few weeks. (:/)

Yeah... I guess I will see. I keep thinking about the shouldas and wouldas I 'should have said this', 'why didn't I mention that', 'could have said this' etc... I think i was just not prepared... she asked me at the end "Is there anything else that She hasn't mentioned that I want the VA to know"... I actually drew a blank. gawd I think I mentioned just my support group is non existent or something along those lines.... *eye roll*

Who performed your an exam? Was it a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist, or at least a doctor? I have been told by the VA that C and P exams for mental health disorders must be done by a clin psych or psychiatrist. I have one coming up soon and do not want it done by the same anti-veteran physicians assistant who did my last 3 for another illness and denied me. So can someone please assure me that a P.A. cannot do these types of exams?

I saw a psychologist. It went alright I guess. Just review your issues before hand and what you want to say. I was bombarded with emotions and in the end should have mentioned things I had neglected to say.

  • 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.

    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
