  • 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

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?

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.

    • 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...
