  • 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

Not A Success Story

Question

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. Also have been anemic 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

I went for vit d deficiency but the C*P says not at this time-BUT I get a letter saying I need

vit D now because my thryoid reading are bad- WTH that was after being on vit d.

They say I have hypoparathryoid along with my hypo thryoid where my faulty kidneys destroy the vit d before it can be sent to your 4 little thryoidseeds in the neck.

I would have them check your TSH hormones for the problem.

Hope the kidneys arnt involved GOOD LUCK STEVE

The part of my bowel they took out has to do with absorption. That is one the points I am trying to get across to the va. Because I haven't loss much weight they say I am absorbing fine, but what about the vit d deficiency, anemia, and hypoglycemia. And again the issue with daily activities. Chronic fatigue ( dr mentioned or in the exam). Need ideas from the hadit gang

Thyroid is fine. Kidneys fine. Liver has beaucoup iron

I lost my teeth because of malabsorption,, no one would help.. so they were all destroyed, and i had to have them all pulled at one time, what was left.. my whole mouth was bleeding because they were like jagged glass... the va would not even take one look, and it was an emergency...

    • 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:
