Reapeate Of Stressor

Question

AS OF TODAY I HAVE BEEN ASKED BY THE VA TO DESCRIBE THE INCIDENT I FELT LED TO MY PTSD CLAIM 7 OR MORE TIMES.

THE VA HAS ASKED MY WIFE 3 TIME FOR A STATEMENT OF WHAT A REAL BADDY I WAS AND AM ,INFIDELITY ,FIGHTING,JAIL,,ABUSE,DRUNK YEARS,HOW I TREAT MY FAMILY ECT....

THIS IS REALLY HARD FOR MY WIFE TO REPEATE OVER AND OVER TO SOME STRANGERS,ARE THEY TRYING TO BREAK UP A MARRIAGE OF 45 YRS

IT IS ESPECIALLY HARD FOR ME TO REPEAT THE INCIDENT OVER AND OVER TO ANYONE

ARE THEY TRYING TO SAY I AM A LIAR [WHEN THE SAME STORY IS WRITTEN BY THE NAVY 2 OR THREE TIMES ???

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM???

HER ARE SOME STATEMENTS FORMS

1.PHYSICALLY QUALIFIED FOR ENLISTMENT

2.WIFE STATEMENT NOT THE FIRST ONE!!!

3WIFE STATEMENT GEEZZ

4. AT LEAST 7 TIMES DESCRIBING INCIDENT

5. NARRATIVE SUMMARY FROM HOSPITAL IN THE USN OWN WORDS NOT MINE

I HAVE MANY MORE DOCUMENTATIONS AND DATES

IS ANYONE ELSE GETTING THIS KIND OF TREATMENT????OR IS IT JUST ME

AND I DO NOT THINK THEY HAVE EVEN READ THE PTSD EXAM

CLAIM FILED JULY 2010

QTC EXAM OCT 2010 [DIAGNOSIS CHRONIC PTSD STRESSOR CONNECTED TO EVENT]

I COULDN'T GET PDF. EXAM TO WORK OR DOWNLOAD

4 DOCUMENTS FROM NAVY HOSPITAL AND SHIP REPORTS OF INCIDENT AND MANY OTHER DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING CLAIM

AND MUCH MUCH MORE EVIDENCE

I LIVE 120 MILES FROM THE CLOSEST VA FACILITY [WENT TWICE BUT WAS REFUSED HELP]

I COULD NOT AFFORD PRIVATE CARE EVEN AFTER DOCUMENTED SUICIDE ATTEMPT

IT IS FROM RATING TO DEVELOPMENT 3 TIMES

EVER SINCE THAT DAY IN 66 I KNEW THERE WAS A PROBLEM BUT UNTIL THE VA HAD ME TAKE A PTSD EXAM I NEVER KNEW WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS AND HOW SERIOUS IT WAS

Many of us here have been asked for what the VA already has-

It IS frustrating.I sent a critical document to the RO 12 times years ago-with proof of mailing-in response to what they asked for and they (the RO) never acknowledged it.

The OGC did however.

Do you have a vet rep? They might be able to find out what is going on with the VA.

Many vet orgs have reps working in or near the VARO buildings and can often find out a little more then we can as to the status of the claim.

You could also use IRIS (Contact US link at the Main VA web site)to request what is going on and have them verify what they got.

If the IRIS response doesn't help, resend the IRIS as a complaint and not as status request.

That worked for me in the past.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
