Still Have A Hard Head

Question

I have been falling down more often, but I can usually catch myself, or make the fall not so painful. Tonight, I stumbled, and tripped over a water spigot. I hit both knees and elbows on the concrete sidewalk, plus my forehead. I'm starting to feel like these people screaming, I've fallen and I can't get up :rolleyes: . Thank goodness I have a hard head, but that is the way we come in Harlan County. The Parkinson's is really getting me down.

Hello Papa,,,, The Lord bless and keep you. Try and keep a note of the event and any little digital picture for your RO. Just so you keep a record of it. and let the doctor and the nurses know about it . if you dont you may forget about it and it would not help you. god Bless NEVER GIVE UP ...... Lord Bless and keep you. (Psalms 84:11) C.C.

Papa,

I'm so sorry you have that dreaded disease.

The elbows and knees are a real bear but I'm sure glad to

NOT see a broken wrist as that is really bad.

Now let me ask you, just how many years has that water spigot been there ? :-)

If you don't have one, it might be time to consider getting

an alert bracelet or necklace that will alert a monitoring company

when you are in need of help.

I feel sure it can even help, an old hard head in Harlan County.

Hang in there Papa, The Late Great Cawood Ledford loved Harlan County and he advertised it often.

Mother m law has the "falling syndrome" you need to discuss this with your PCP and see what they suggest. A walker of some sort by be the answer for you.

Good Luck!

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
