Ptsd C&p Yesterday

Question

1st post ever, hello to all. Hope some of you can help to put me at ease. My Psyc Doc kept interjecting her psyc solutions to my problems. I didn't think that I was there to hear solutions to my problems, but rather for her to document what my problems are. I explained how I don't like to be around people, how I have so much built up anger toward Arab people and basically humanity in general, lack of trust issues and many other typical PTSD symptoms and all I would get from her is how I needed to change how I see things etc.

WTF. I now I need to change, I don't particularly like who I've become, but I am who I am now and I hold the military responsible for whom I've become. I mentioned to her that I hate the military for ruining my life and she said, " the military didn't ruin your life, you ruined your life." So, I threw right back at her and said, " yeah, you're right, I ruined my life by joining the

military - What a bi...h. A little background: I was with the 101st in Desert Storm, Infantry. I have the Stressor and plenty of symptoms with PTSD letter from my pr\ivate PSCY Doc.

I've had Depression since getting out related to child custody issues. That child is now almost 18 and quite frankly I'm not depressed by that any longer. Now, PTSD had reared it's ugly head and this women Doc seemed to be pinning my current state on past life issues after the war. Fact is: I never had mental health issues prior to joining the military. Am I worrying about nothing. Shouldn't my claim be rather easy to rate. I have traits that place my in both the 50% and 70% catagories. I do hold down a full time job, only because I've been doing it for 18 yrs and I can do it in my sleep. What are my possibilities. Thanks in advance.

Have you had ongoing treatment and a diagnosis of PTSD from this "psyche" doc or was this a doctor who was doing a PTSD C & P ecxam for your claim.

"I have the Stressor and plenty of symptoms with PTSD letter from my pr\ivate PSCY Doc."

Is this an IMO and have you submitted this with the claim?

Has the stressor been verified?

Will the new PTSD rules help you?

The new rules however require a PTSD diagnosis from a VA doctor.

Did the VA doctor support the PTSD diagnosis you have from a private doctor?

I have the Stressor and plenty of symptoms with PTSD letter from my pr\ivate PSCY Doc.

batman,

If this C&P was done at your local VAMC - you can probably go to ROI and get a copy

of it. If it was done by QTC - you probably won't be able to get a copy of it until after

the Rating Decision is made.

What exactly does the "PTSD letter from my pr\ivate PSCY Doc" state ?

Batman i see you was in the 101st AB,so i am specalating that you have a combat infantryman Badge and if you do and been diagnose with PTSD,i beleivie you will get a rating but without knowing the result of your C&P report it will be hard to specalate on the precentage on what your rating will be.

First of all Welcome Home brother.

Claims are not easy since the VA has to submit a lengthly explanation of a Vet's issues. Also, when the psyche PhD or MD doctor tells you of their evaluation and you know are not accurate then you must firmly correct her. I'll bet this woman has never seen a weapon pointing at her or even seen fatigues so it tells me she is in the wrong job...She needs to find another job preferrably outside the VA.

An exam during a C+P is a person who looks for how you were before military, during military and after military. These people also confirm or argue your evaluations received by a VA or private PhD or MD. You must be strong and hold a stong feeling about how you were misused and it is obvious you do not trust anyone.....We do not trust anyone either. Trust and Anger are common threads amongst those of us who have PTSD. ALso it is common to get angry at the slightest thing and I get ticked off when I hear someone is trying to get over on a Vet.....You were good before the military and had a happy life then tell the xxxxx. Please do not let her ruin your examination by her submitting false remarks about you because if a person is subjected to War of any form then I firmly believe that person has a high degree of PTSD.....If you feel your PTSD is 50 with scants of 70 then I guarantee you that deep inside, you exhibit a firm 70% - 100%....

We are a group of Vietnam Vets in South Florida that try and help other War exposed Vets through the Red Tape especially when PTSD is their major issue.

God Bless our Veterans and Troops.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    Examples:

    • 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.

    Note:

    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
