I Got Rob

Question

Today is my birthday, I guess I am lucky to have an extended family, Mom, Uncles and Cousin, They all from the old country i grew up in. Now there is not a smile on my face, I am really angry, so I stay to myself, Many different therapy, I think in a nice way they, can shove it. I will finish the programs, I know it is Me, my way of thinking, Just going to keep my mouth shut. My wife of twenty eight years, has put up with me. But these last couple of months, She blames me for no social life we had. Very good woman, I blame Her for not understanding, Ptsd, who knows? I have so much love and tenderness, in this broken body, that hurts all over, ( spondyolosis ) ridden body. What a way so spend a Birth day.. I don't want to spend my life like this. I want to love again. I think wife and myself on two different road. But I will man up, on my duty. But no love coming back. And that is no cognitive distortion. I can spend my time with my dogs, this should not have happened. How could I have lead men, now I can't keep this together . Thanks for letting me blow off some steam.

Hold your head high and take it one day at a time. Roll with the punches and leave them in past. Its all about the here and now. You are who you are and only you can change that. The ptsd doctors can give you the tools to do so. The further out you look the steeper the road to recovery will look. One thing I have found is there is going to many days where you'll feel you took one step forward and ten back. Just don't let it get to you. After all it is one big mind game.

You're doing great coming here and blowing off some steam. Very hard to do. Happy birthday btw!

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
