  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Only if you can counter whatever your SOC says was the reasoning for their decision. Good luck!

Are you working? You have enough to get IU if you are not working. If you are working it is hard to get a higher rating for a mental health disorder. That is the main factor in gettting a higher rating.

Have you ever been able to work since you broke your back in 4 places while on active duty? Have you received compensation awards along with your initial discharge? Do you go to the VAMC for routine pain clinic visits? Behavioral Health visits? Ever had any IMO's or IME's ?

Do your SMR/STR validate your service connected injuries? Make sure you have treatment records post discharge too for the problems you claimed during in-service. Do you use a VSO? If so, what advise do you receive from him/her too?

How long have you been challenging the VA?
