Just Got Fired Again


hey everyone, im a 28 year old combat Marine deployed to Iraq for the initial invasion. After coming home and getting out of the marines i struggled with thoughts and dream like most others with ptsd. ive been to jail for a year, rehab for a year, done everything i can do to survive. i have been rated 50% for ptsd for about the last 2 years. for the past year things have got worse, i cant keep a job, just got fired yesterday for multiple infractions, including choking out a fellow employee.. i have a claim for increase submitted by the DAV. my c&p exam is in 2 weeks. should i bring in another letter from my recent employer showing i lost another job. in the last two months my nurse practitioner has switched my meds 3 different times, my brain does not seem to be accepting these drugs, but i take them for the hope of getting better. not sure if it matters, but my gaf for the last year have ranged from 40 to 45, im just so low right now. i cant believe i lost another job. i dont no what to do anymore, how am i gonna survive this one. any answers or hope are greatly apprieciated.

Welcome to hadit.com

Sorry you are having a hard time.

Glad you didn't get arrested for choking out a fellow employee -

heck - they might end up with PTSD after that.

Have you checked out the Vet Centers in your area ?


Others will probably chime in.

you need to make sure this is well documented and you need a Doc to say you are unemployable so you can qualify for an increase. IU or a schedular rating may be in your future.

Physical harm to others indicate possible rage and your inability to maintain employment and jail term and other infractions seem to be escalating. Put in for a higher rating due to your inability to function in a work setting. What about your personal/home life? Valid accurate truthful documentation by witnesses, reliable people can assist you with evidence, and your medical mental health providers recommendations, and evaluations can only help your claim. Get as much evidentiary documentation and turn it in. Use your VSO along this way. You need to get help now so you do not seriously hurt someone else or yourself.

Make sure you are truthful in your C&P exam. Don't make up anything, seems your behavior and documentation will assist your claim. You know you can go to your facility and receive treatment for your explosive behavior, versus waiting for a next appt and harming someone. They have a BH individual on call and also triage when normal hours.

Welcome to hadit and thank you for your service.

I'm sorry you're having work and anger issues.

Please consider inpatient treatment.

Welcome to Hadit. Its my opinion that you need much more help than a Nurse Practitioner can offer. Changing meds three times in two weeks is not a good way to treat MH issues.

Its my opinion but you should ask to see a shrink or psychologist.

Good Luck

    • 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.
