    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?”

Went To C&p And Was Baker Acted


blackcloud

Question

Hi to all

I went to my C&P for PTSD and was Baker Acted for Suicidal Ideations. Is this a bad thing (aside from the obvious)? Do I have to re-do my C&P, or is it over. No future appointment was made by my doc (This is the second Psychiatrist I have seen). I have the paperwork that the first DOC said Diagnosed with PTSD (this is before being committed). I left the VA Metal ward after 3 days (that place was more stressful than real world). Below are the last scores I have before being hauled off.

Axis I Clinical Disorder: Anxiety Disorder; PTSD; Chronic Depressive Disorder; Major Depression.

Axis II Personality: Deferred

Axis III Medical Condition(s): Sleep Apnea

Axis IV Stressors: Child Molestation/Abuse, recent loss of mother

Axis V GAF score (I have averaged it over all my visits) 60

Thanks to all.

LOL I told yall all the info and forgot to ask the crucial question of: Do I have to re-do my C&P exam since I was Baker Acted to Bay Pines after a 10 min evaluation?

Thanks deanbrt!

I must have been on my meds when I posted...

I am not sure that I have established a service connection. The first Psychiatrist I was working with said I had (undiagnosed) PTSD while I was in, this opinion was based on what I had told her. I have not received any paperwork saying there was a service connection as of yet. That was why I was wondering if it was a bad thing. I was trying to build my case and within 10 min of my C&P I am being admitted to Bay Pines psych ward in FL later that day. I hope this does not look bad for me trying to make my case, and, I hope that I do not have to do the C&P again as that was stressful on me and my wife. I will keep yall posted on how things go and if I find anything that says it wa service connected.

Thanks!
