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!

    • 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:
