I got a copy of my C&P exam from the local V.A. Clinic. The C&P examiner in it states that in essence that I am diagnosed with PTSD related to my combat experiences (vIetnam) and service connected them. All the symptoms were listed, medications being taken, continued trreatment through the V.A. yadayada...in the end where the Occupational and Social Imparments are listed, he put me down as having no OC imparment at all. It totally blew me away. I brought this up at my next therapy & psych appointment and was basically told that they know of this particular examiner and he always does that. What kind of crap is that ?

Yeah, some of the C&P docs are a-holes. Did your regular therapy/psych doc note disagreement? Have they opined as to your OC impairment?

how does it match up with your work history suspensions from work, missed days due to PTSD issues? How many different jobs have you had since Nam? Are you retired now? Is it documented in your work history where they sent you to counseling due to work related issues with other employees or customers like the Post Office does they refer employees to EAP one of their docs put me on zoloft back in the 90s and gave me 2 weeks off to get adjusted to the meds it was administrative leave because I refused to let them use my sick leave or my annual leave for it I didn't ask for the time off and they were making me take it why should I have to use my benefits for it they were forcing it in the end that was the last time they wasted their efforts of sending me to EAP I really pizzed the Post Master off on that one rofl

your work history has to match the OC problems I have seen many people spend 30-40 years at the same compnay retire and then go to the VA and file for PTSD and claim it is stopping them from working when it never interfered in the past 40 years only now they see how it can add to the retirement checks

so the VA is looking at all the factors and the history needs to match the storyline

  • 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.


    • 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.
