    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Finally My C&p Date Is Here

Question

I am finally dress to go to my USPS job, I believe I am on top of the world financially, a retirement due to 20 years of service, some disability, and a job I love. But family, I cannot open the door to go to work. This goes on for over two weeks, my wife seeks an explanation almost demanding one. I looked at her like a Pvt. Looking for a left handed wrench. Several days before I was at a big box grocery store, I saw a young military couple. I started crying like a baby, trying to hide my tears. I did know that something was wrong.

So after CPT, Distraction, Cognitive Distortion, Several Groups, Prolong Exposure Therapy, I finally seek a claim, and my C&P is eleven days from now, How do I feel? Anxious, cold, and sweaty, are my feelings now. A lot of my fear is suppress, right on the top of my head it seems, like I can explode, I am afraid to sleep, I don't want that same dream were I can't breath, and I have to get out. I stay awake until I am force to take a Trazadone, which I do not like. So I still stay in my safe place. I just found I new one called Mindfulness. (all of these therapy is at the VA). After therapy I find myself with a relief that I am going home, I need to stop at the grocery store, but later will be better, or get my wife to go with me, she is my anchor, even thou there is no loving, (I know I am wrong on that statement). She has been there since I was a private, but I feel I am all alone, my kids, they see their mother at least three time maybe a year, as far as I know, my bright star is my grand baby, (Papa). That is a sweet sound to my hears, she is a little over two years, and innocent.

So once again I turn to my family, (Hadit). To let off some steam, but better yet, if I can help someone with my short story, I owe much, Oh, I have been diagnose with ptsd, and chronic ptsd, along with adjustment disorder by two different Dr's Phd psychiatric social worker, and a Psy.D. Staff Psychologist. I will continue to read and learn. Any Info for this rookie, I will most be thankful, Much Love Dan

Carley, The word Thanks cannot convey the enormous value I have for you, and others that constantly put forth time, resources, energy, all in the name of helping others as myself. One of my goals is to also help humanity and leave this world a better place. Much love to you and all. (Hadit rocks).

My situations just do not seems to be me, I am watching my life and as I am not in it. As stated many times, this site allows me to vent. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone. Dan

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
