    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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

Question

My mind feels like a maze, tomorrow is my re-evaluation, and the way I feel is confuse, at 100% my thinking is only down is the road; But, my state of mind concerns me more.

Also tomorrow looks like my last visit with my first Dr. He has been on and mostly off my treatment. I feel sad in loosing Him. Plus my group called PTSD GRADUATES, ask me to take a break for a while, sensing that I might need more basic care.

Looking at my schedule ending in November, V. A. Has giving me a new Dr. For a new group. I have a problem in that I want to be close to the V.A. Group, but I don't want to go back thru PE, nor CPT, or IN VIVO, which I have done, and do not want to open up the scars that they left, yes they did some good, but I am happy in my house, walking my dogs, and caring for my roses.

What else do they want? No public for me, I don't care for it. Avoidance, yes, but I am OK with it. Would V.A. Dump me soon, since I don't go along with thire program? Oh Boy! I would be loss.

Thanks Notorious Kelly, as I went to my first appt. the TV was on the news, I had heard about our Flag been desecrated and one person dead yesterday, but today as I waited for the Dr. The real or clearer news came out. It was a Big Trigger for me. I saw the sand and dust from my time in the box, tears roll down my face. I could not stop for a while. Then the Dr. Came and we had a good session were my concerns were express. I will get my progress notes tomorrow. Plus the Dr. Gave me another appt. for Oct.

This new group is about as basic of PTSD, it is actually more class than a group, so I have been told.

My C&P was also close to my first appt. so I still was still emotionally drained. That Dr. Was gentle, and was on point. At the end He acknowledge my PTSD and Depresion, now is just time to see the results. It has been a long day.

SP4RVN1971, Yes I believe God has bless me with a wife that's my anchor, my dogs, roses, I did not mention my Keyboard that I still can't play, but sweet music to my ears, and you are also right about our Hadit Family, never leave no one behind.

To all, be strong, "our mind can be our worst fear". Is that an original? Don't give up
