Berta:

I would give you a kiss ... (muah) ... first kiss I have seen on hadit too .... for that one if your were here. ... :rolleyes:

Today has been a little rough ... I had an appt at VAMC today and the ONLY person that I really trust there is leaving soon.

I set my 3 alarm clocks for 0500 and didn't go to sleep (pre-VAMC anxiety) until almost 0430 and then turned off all 3 alarms without remembering. .. :blink:

WOW ... woke up a hour later ... grabbed my glasses and baseball cap ... and out the door ... saying .. "good morning" .. to Oscar as I whizzed out the back door. .... :P

Berta ... thanks again for this info. ... and that posted link on PTSD Video too.

It is very tough for me to shed a tear for myself ... but when I do ... it really seems to help some ... and that link was super.

... Magoo .. aka .. Bill ... :blink:

PS ... You made my day turn around a bit ... thanks ... :unsure:

PPS ... When I went to the VAMC today ... I went to the VAPD office to get the police report from that car driving up under my truck a few weeks ago in the VAMC parking lot.

The lady in the VAPD office looked at me funny with my request ... then said ... NO REPORTS TO INDIVIDUALS ... ONLY TO INS COS. ... the Ins. Co. has to fax them a request on the Ins. Co. Letterhead ... because there are Soc. Sec. numbers on the report ... or that is what she said ?????

I was told by the VA cops to come by the VAPD office (in the VAMC) and pick up a copy a day after the accident ???

PPPS ... Noo ... Adora ... I did not go to the ILSP office (wherever it is) and ask for a .... Sig Sauer 9mm and Paper (head shot only) Targets .... for my Voc. ReHab .... :blink:

...... I was too wigged out because ... some of the best VAMC employees that are leaving soon.

Magoo

If you are going to ask the VA for a pistol as part of the ILS I am glad you asked for the Sig or was it just the targets? That should have made them nervous when PTSD vet asks for targets, ha, ha.

Bill, I'm sorry your best friends at the VA are leaving, moving on! PTSD vets sure are picky about true friends (got your back, you got mine) and TRUST, well that's sacred, and geesh, we just get super attached when we finally find a kindred soul to relate to! When they leave (us), this HURTS but helps us grow up emotionally, so it ain't all that bad ... we didn't die, they didn't die, just moved on and we can always call - and heck, missing someone is better than not having anyone to miss ;-) Best part for me is finding that after all these years of going it ALONE, that I really have come to appreciate a true friend, even if it hurts - it is so worth all the pain of goodbye. Our hearts just get bigger and better! HUGS Bill!! ~Wings

PS No 9mm today - that's OK, better luck next time LOL! Best we keep this an "in-house" joke ;-)

I have a good primary care doctor and a good shrink at the VAMC. My opiod nurse is good also. If my shrink retires which is likely soon, I don't know how I will handle that. I want to get the most out of these good docs while I can because I have had some lousy ones in the past. I don't trust any of them 100% and I am always aware I am dealing with the VA.

    • A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective
      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

    • Post in I need some help, please
      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
