  • 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

C& P For Emotional Health

Question

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?

    • 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...
