What To Expect For Ptsd C&p St.louis

Question

Hello I have been fighting for my PTSD rating since my return in 2004.......Finally I have a C&P examination for PTSD next week on the 17th.

My question is what to expect, what questions will they ask me, etc? I like to be prepared and I am nervous as hell as I have not been able to work becuse of my PTSD for the last two yrs...I have so much riding on this and we are close to going over the edge.

Also my wife will not be able to be there.....should she write a letter?

Hello, IraqVet, and thank you for your service.

Here is a post many have found helpful in preparing for any C&P:

http://www.hadit.com/thingstodoatcandp.html

A statement from your wife can be helpful and brought as additional evidence. Some info on spousal statment from elsewhere which may be helpful:

"Make yourself a list about him: His daily routines, what makes him angry, how he responds to changes in plans, how he reacts to confrontation, how he handles stressful situations like traffic jams and being cut off by other drivers, how physically active he is, what meds he is on now, any changes and problems with meds, therapy, doctor appts, the VA. Does he keep appointments?How does he treat you and others now? How has his personality changed? How does he spend his free time? Does he want to work full time? What job area does he want and why cant he do that kind of work? How does he handle money now? Any compulsions or debt problems? Does he take care of himself now? Does he exercise too much or eat too much or too little? Does he have symptoms of depression? List them all, or go to a depression website to get a list of symptoms you can use in your letter. Does he smoke now or do drugs or pain killers now? Does he drink too much? What music does he listen to now, at what volume? Has he lost friends since he returned? Do you see him abusing himself or others? Give examples. Detail everything. "

More excellent information from Carlie and LarryJ in this post:

I wish you well! :smile:

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
