  • 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

CAVC site apparently won't save a specific search. So you'll have to enter 38 C.F.R 4.114 in the search window.

Back to the drawing board...

Got my rating decision back for my claim. Decision kept

My overall rating at 20%. No signs of malnutrition (even though I am deficient in D). Said my hypoglycemia was ok ( reading of 78 79 and 81)... They didn't even take into consideration my ha1c ( more accurate reading

If blood sugar) which was 3.5, 3.7, and 4.3 (low average is 4.5). I have to make sure I eat before working around the house or mowing, otherwise, I almost pass out. They also didn't even rake into the consideration of daily activities. Y

Whole days are scheduled around what I eat and where the nearest bathroom is. Great for a guy that is 34 and recently married, "gee honey can't eat there because I won'take it home in time to use the bathroom.". Nothing

Like a 34 year old sometimes not making it to the bathroom. I say 34 But this has been going on since 2001. Drs are now trying to help me our with cholestyramine, but the most it has dine

So far has got me from using the bathroom 4-6 times

A day to3-5 times, woo hoo. My wife, whom I've known for 5 going on 6 years, even put in a statement, but apparently didnt carry much weight. So, here I am getting ready to write my appeal. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Sorry about the rant, just figured asking to get bumped from 20 to 40 for two conditions would be

Cut and dry

If I was you I would see a VA psychiatrist and see about getting evidence to file a claim for depression. Anybody with your problems has to be depressed to some extent. For instance, everyone I know with chronic back pain usually is depressed.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
