Hi


AtRisk
This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 

 

Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 

 

This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.

Hi...I am obviously new here but I just found this place today rolleyes.gif Then I had to read a bit about it and then decide whether or not I wanted to be hereunsure.gif Well I decided to maybe reach out and listen alot. So, here I am after alllaugh.gif.

I am VietNam era veteran and I have 100% unemployability and service connected. I have quite a bit wrong with me and the way I deal with the world but am working hard on those things. I want to improve the way I deal with people and can even say to myself where all my anger and stuff comes from. I know, even if that doesn't make it better. At least I know. I am not ready to get into that right now. It causes too many problems when I go there but maybe someday. Let's just say that at this point I cannot not justify what isn't entirely clear yet. So, I will talk about what I can speak comfortably about.

I have been out of the military for a long time. I worked until 2004 for the government until I got medically retired. I have had problems for many years and even with efforts to deal with it and counseling it just got worse until I couldn't safely work anymore. My injuries are permanent and they have told me they cannot make it all better but maybe they can help with some of it.sad.gif

I live where I want, I have my beloved husband who is also a veteran, disabled, and my very best friend.laugh.giflaugh.gif.

I love my horses, my dogs, art and writing. I have written three books on spirituality and common sense approaches to life. I may not laugh much on the outside but on the inside I do have a decent sense of humor. Different but definitely there.

The reason for my name is that is how I feel. AtRisk

At Risk. Welcome here. I see your husband is your support as well as your animals. Many times it is easier to talk to ones animals and feel that close connection. Glad you have all on your side. When and if the time comes you feel you want to post or ask any questions the site is always open for you to do so. I find writing my escape at times, but have never sought to publish anything. Poems and short stories I do. Take care.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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 first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • 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
