C&p Reports For Increase/tdiu

Question

Last couple day I have been asking a lot of questions on here. I'm a bundle of nerves and anxiety awaiting notification on my TDIU claim for major drepression and migarine headaches.

I had read in previous posts that a person can "somewhat" get an idea what a rater may decide by looking at copies of the C&P exams. Well, I dug those out and blew the dust off of them. It's 16 pages of jargon that i won't even attempt to re-type here, BUT if anyone knows what section(s) of the report are vital I would be eager to share what I have.

Thanks for being tolerant of my neediness right now

My MH c&P had a section of subjective (my complaints) and objective, and then a separate section on his MH observations where, at he end he gave me my GAF and Axis. I would look in there for any word derived of the work "Employment" or "Employability". If the didn't come right out and say it, it will be tough to find, though. I use google a lot to look up terms in my C&P's, too.

I am not computer savvy so I'll input manually

Under DIANOSIS there are sub-catagories. The AXIS is in sub-catagory MENTAL DISORDER: EMPLOYMENT HISTORY..this is what the axis says

AXIS I: Major Depression, recurrent, severe

IF ANY ADDITIONAL MENTAL DISORDERS HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED, EXPLANATION OF HOW THE SYMPTOMS ARE RELATED TO OR ARE PART OF EACH MENTAL DISORDER:

PTSD secondary to MST

AXIS II: NONE

AXIS III: Per medical record

AXIS IV: poor energy, headaches, continuing symptoms

AXIS V: GAF score 45

Than skipping to the last catagory titled C&P EXAM MEDICAL OPINION sub-catagory EXAMINER'S OTHER MEDICAL OPINION..."There appears to be an increase in symptoms of Major Depression and PTSD for this veteran since the time of her most recent c&p eval.

This veteran appears to meet the criteria for unemployability due to Major Depression and PTSD.

RATIONALE FOR OPINION GIVEN: This veteran reports increasing symptoms of Major Depression with some impairment in accomplishing ADLs due to symptoms of clinical depression and physical fatigue. She reports a period of severe depression w/suicidal ideation in 2009. (it goes into some personal stuff that i'll skip). The veteran reports severe ongoing symptoms of depression & PTSD, w/increased anxiety, panic attacks, poor concentration & focus, limited stamina. It appears that this veteran may also have medical concerns in terms of continuing fatigue & lack of stamina, frequent headaches. She has severe current impairment in her occupational functioning(i was not working..it's referring to parenting my youngest child) and severe impairment in her psychosocial functioning; difficulty in engaging in activities outside of the home due to anxiety. She is a capable woman w/a significant degree of current impairment due to psychiatric & medical issues.

This obviously was my MH exam & there's also one addressing my headaches.

Based on your C and P exam, it is obvious the examiner has opined that you should be rated TDIU at 100%. It seems very solid to me, and, while I cant really see how the VA could deny you TDIU based on this, I do know they will likely, if they have not already, ask for a report sent back from your old employer. Hopefully, his version is consistent with the medical examiner. Remember, tho, the VA loves to deny those "no brainer cases" like this and make you appeal for 10 years. Ultimately, however, this critical evidence should win for you. You may even luck out and get TDIU the first go around with no appeals, as this evidence is strong, IMHO.

Yeah, my old employer..sore subject & may cause problems. I was an independant contractor shooting instructor for Blackwater USA. Huge private company that has several military contracts. They loved me while i was able to keep-it together for a year and a half. I had a dilemma about divulging my issues to them because I knew they would let me go in a heartbeat since it was a sought after job with a long line of people ready to take my place. I did finally have to tell them about dealing w/headaches & depression. I was asked if I wanted to resign or just to be let go. I chose to write a letter of resignation so I could use them in the furutre as a referral. Stupid me, huh? They took 14 months to reply to the VA about my employment and I have no idea what they said..too hurt to look. They set me back more emotionally than the military did. This was 2006 and I still get tearful thinking about the whole situtaion. I was very proud of my job.

eagle,

At this point it is irrelevant what the employer stated regarding your employment there.

ALL THAT IS RELEVANT in a claim for IU is - Do Your SC'd Disability's render you Unemployable.
