Question

I was awarded 100% howevr I am not considered P and T, I will try and get it. On friday night my next door neighbor house caught on fire and I had to go in and rescue her and try and put the fire out. In doing so I suffered some smoke inhalation and my anxiety and depression symptoms have gotten worse do to this experience. I will be quiting my job on monday because I think I will be a disruption to my co-workers and I feel I cannot be as productive as I should. Also because of this experience my lower back pain has gotten worse to the point I cannot affectivlely move around at the same pace as before. Do you think this is a good idea or what?

vet2010,

I do not know how the VBA will look upon your mental health symptomology increasing

due to what happened at your neighbors house fire.

NO - I DO NOT think it is a good idea to quit your job right now.

I would go to work and if it turns out that you are a "disruption" and that you

"cannot be as productive as I should." then something in writing from your employer

would be an asset to your needs.

I think you should speak to your medical (both physical and mental) health care providers

and feel them out to see if they agree you should not be employed.

If so, have them put something in writing to confirm this is their opinion, as this would also

be additional evidence for your needs.

Once you just up and quit of your own free will - you probably will not be able to get

evidence such as I've posted above.

JMHO

Heck NO. Don't mention the fact you were able to rescue your neighbor and injured yourself doing it. If you quit your job based on this situation with the fire the VA is going to say that is the reason you can't work. You must be P&T solely for your SC conditions. You should just forget your heroic action as far as the VA is concerned.

I am going to quit regardless of the situation with VA, I can perform the task at work however when I get off work its like I constantly cry and am depressed about everything. Maintaining employment is a struggle, my supervisor or co-workers don't see it however my wife and kids do. I cannot sleep and I can hardly eat, my life is completely miserable. I need advice on what to do next because I am quiting today. Please Help?

    • 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.
