    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

Well, I sure don't know what a PM is or where to find it? I found this site during an Internet search and must be lost in the "Twilight Zone" doomed only to wonder aimlessly reading others post and occasionally finding some way to reply to them.

I have an idea you have your font settings to large, or your pixels wrong. You see, if you try to fit too much into your screen sometimes stuff gets cut off, so you can not "see" the "Post" button.

If this is true, and you dont see a "Post" or "reply" button to click try this:

If you have Windows 7 go to your desktop and point your pointer at a blank spot. RIGHT click and select "screen resolution". Mine is 1440 x 900 but if I use other screen resolutions, what appears on my screen gets bigger or smaller. So change it to a resolution that works..where you can fit stuff in, but not have the print too small. This can be changed in other places in Windows as well.

Have Windows 7 and I can see the post button at the bottom of this page, but if a go to another page and tri to click on a forum like "TDIU" all I can do is read and reply to the post already there and not start a new one.

Just like this post that I started for help. What if I wanted to start a post under "C&P" and another under "Appeals", how do I do that?

I opened the site in another window, clicked on C&P and saw what others posted but no button to start a new post. Tried to cut and past what I saw, but it came out below in a different format and can't insert a snapshot in this area I'm typing in?

PS Right clicked as you instructed and there is no "screen resolution" in the menu that appears??? Thanks for trying to help

My Question is a very simple one....I took early retirement in 2009 secondary to side effects from (NHL) . My rating for NHL(Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma) is 0% because it's in remission, I am currently appealing the 0%. , however I am service connected for PTSD 50%, peripheral neuropathy 20% etc... I applied for TDIU, (on the advice of counsel).The forms were all completed by my employer & physicians did up a nice letter,stating all the adverse reactions from the disease or the chemotherapy... I am collecting Social security benefits, and Teacher's retirement. I taught elementary education and was constantly sick because of my weaken immune system. I couldn't do it anymore. I have no other formal training...I am also 66 years old. I retired at 62...2009. I read that for this claim to be sucessful the NHL should have the highest rating???? What do you all think? Almost forgot to mention my last exam with the oncologist was on May 10th, the oncologist stated I have enlarge red blood cells??? What exactly this means is anybodies guess, however she feels this is the reason for the fatigue, night sweats. I am schedule for a scan on Saturday. Is it wise to send the VA the lab work, and the notes from this meeting. It was interesting how this visit was done...via the new video technology the VA is employing. It makes it easier for Veterans that live too far from the RO, It can be held at the clinics you frequent. All disciplines are present...SW, Doctor, nutritionist, and a NP. Really Cool! Doug
