  • 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

Medical Changes By Private Doctor

Question

Prior to my PTSD C&P exam, my private doctor had me do a lot of labs. I had an appointment with my doctor 2 days after the PTSD exam. My doctor ask me how it went, and told him the same thing I told the physc. While I was already on citalopram at 30MG, he increased it to 40MG. He also put me on clonazepam .5MG to help me sleep. My Hypothyroidism has gone haywire. He ordered a sleep study because my labs as saying that my sleep is screwed up, and my testosterone level is very low. My sugar level is way off and prescribed a drug to help me get my sugar right, as it is killing my pancreas. Is anyone else on these meds?

yes, just not all of them................BTW, most males over, say, 50 years old or so, are low on testerone. Being low on testerone can cause ALL SORTS of problems and not all these problems are "sexual" in nature. Take "forgetfulness" or "irritability", or even "dry and itching skin" -----seriously.

I've always been a proponent of the fact that "male menopause" exists, just like the female variety. We men actually attempt, in our own minds, to somewhat disparage our female counterparts when they are enduring the effects of menopause.....................when, if the truth were told (by any of us guys), we are affected just as much in some areas as the gals are. But, we have not been led (or allowed to) to believe such facts.

I LIKE MY TESTOSTERONE! After my wife the RN, finally convinced me that bio-identicle (sp?) hormones were not JUST for women and talked me into a testosterone test and therapy.................heck, now I'd take it by the pint if they'd prescribe it that way!

    • 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...
