Sorry to hear of your frustration.

If you're able, you can handle the claim yourself - you fire your VSO by revoking Power Of Attorney.

You could change VSO's but may find yourself in the same situation.

Researching on Hadit and elsewhere can make you more knowledgeable and competent than some VSO's.

Good luck!

Can you tell us what the breakdown of your SC % is?

"Even though you meet one or more of the criteria for a higher evaluation ,and a gaf score of 43 ,your over all evidentiary record shows that severity has not increased?"

Is it Me or WTF does that mean? You meet the criteria for a higher rating.

Have you had any change in meds to show increase in severity?

Any employment or school issues to reflect increase in severity?

Do they comp you for any scarring due to the PHs?

Have you read over your med recs carefully to see if the 'evidentiary record' DOES show increase in severity?

Did the VA give you any further rationale at all for what they said?

Do you have a copy of the C & P exam they based this on?

Have you applied for SSDI? A GAF of 43 does not compute with a 50% rating if you are not working. If you need a representative on this I would hire a lawyer. Your VSO probably blew the case and is trying to cover up.

Berta, I am 50% for PTSD and haven't worked in about 2 years...I am on meds for night mares and anxiety since my 1st eval...Just called my VSO and she hadn't had a chance to look at my latest C&P report and I feel sure she got it the same time I did a week ago...says next board hearing is in Feb2012

John, you may be right...it is just so hard for me to deal with this crap...I noticed a lawyer has a link on this site..has anyone used him or where could an old Marine fine some legal help on this matter...

usmc -

Sorry to hear about your results. Go for the reconsideration/appeal, and get another rep. What is your regional office?? I'm curious about your VSO's organization - she sounds a lot like my former VSO. I fired her, and found another who's already done more in a few months than she did in a few years. If you feel you're being slighted, you should find someone else. As you're looking for a VSO/Lawyer, interview them. Remember, it's YOUR issue/appeal on the line, not theirs.
