  • 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

Went To C&p And Was Baker Acted

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?

If they establish service connection, I think it may support a higher rating

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!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
