Ptsd Exam

Rate this question


Done wit this

Question

New to this kind of claim, but a vet with Hadit. I wanted to let the good folks here know that, I had my PSTD comp exam. never really thinking this would come into play in my claims, I was wrong. I went through some real crap oversea's and it is bigger then I would have thought. I really have thought about it since and I guess admitting it would be my first step... It was all in my files--- 3 stressors and from what I am seeing from the copy of the report the doc says a deffinate out come from my duty, and from the guidlines I am following from this sight alott higher then I would have ever admitted to. Maybe I will finally be free of this Maze i have been in sence 1991. Thanks all Again... you people are all price-less.

Rick, good to see you back at hadit.

That is the bad part about PTSD, it can affect vets in so many ways and often they dont attribute a lot of their feelings and problems to Mil service, and sometimes it can take years to bring it to a head.

A vet I know who worked for VA as a supervisor for years used to give the PTSD vets employed there a real hard time. He even woud call them crazy. He gave my husband a hard time on the job a lot.

A few years ago he called me out of the blue-VA had just put him on a stress leave and was giving him treatment for PTSD.

The guy felt so guilty for the way he had treated my husband and other PTSD vets on the job. He had been diagnosed with it due to his Vietnam service but told me he had never made the connection in almost 30 years.

It scared him too to have the diagnosis but he said for the first time in years he was starting to understand himself better and maybe with the diagnosis and treatment his wife would stay with him. (She had almost left him many times).

I dont know if there is a vet center near us Rick and I think Bath VAMC might still have a PTSD group meeting there.

In any event with this diagnosis, they are bound to compensate you for PTSD.

Sometimes ,for some vets I know, the diagnosis is a relief.

They learn they sure arent crazy at all and find that thousands of other military brothers and sisters are dealing with PTSD too.

Hadit is still te Best place in town for VA claims help!

GREAT News Rick----

did the VA enclose a TDIU form?

It is always good to hear that a DAV rep helped you.Many reps bend over backwards for vets and ,as much as I gripe about reps, I know there are many good ones.

Hi Berta

No form is here. But My Reps from the DAV have me submitting a letter saying that I want to file for the I.U. to the Buffalo office, they will take it from there,file for me in My behalf. I am in great hopes that soon My old wages will be almost--replaced with a fair award of the Unemployability. Our lifes will be back to somewhat normal it has been, and still will be real hard to make it work on what I get from the VA..until that Time things are still going to be tough.. : ( ... but I can see the end of the road. where I can be safe and secure with My family again. You would think that when a Vet can't work any longer they would help, not so for me. I am in great hopes of being done with this" with the DAV's help. : )
