    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

Ptsd Cure?

Question

  • Moderator

According to this doc, PTSD can be "cured" 80% of the time.

Interestingly, we dont know if this will work long term, and what the side effects of this therapy are:

http://www.foxnews.c...sd-in-veterans/

They are apparently looking for 2 legged guinea pigs to try this out on.

I will add that many Vets who got "shots" (immunizations for things like mumps, ruebella, etc) wound up getting far worse maladies from dirty needles or jetguns, such as hep C or even aids. In other words the "cure" for this may well turn out to be worse than the disease it is supposed to cure.

Good article,but not for me.And it sounds awful fishy that it could work in as little as 30 minutes.It probably just makes them more numb than they already are.And no one knows the long term affects of this.My meds have leveled me out and I am functioning much better as long as I take them.I guess if the meds and nothing else worked I might consider trying this.But, the VA doesn't recognize this therapy......................Mike

Yes vaccines are Dangerous,,like the 1976 Swine flu Vaccine the Army shot in my arm that totally paralyzed me..They have no idea what the side effects will be short term or long term,,also will they start this out as voluntary then mandate to keep your bennies?,,wouldn't put it past them,,anything to cheat you out of compensation due to you,,

I wondered the same thing, Dan. It would be like the VA saying,

"Ok, now that PTSD has been "cured" we are eliminating that as a benefit and cutting all the PTSD Vets off benefits. After all, it isnt the VA's fault if the Veteran refuses to get this "cure all" shot?"

Yea, right. Is the VA selling snake oil now? Were we not guinea pigs enough with things like Agent Orange and jetguns? And now, the VA wants to "try" this...untested....and unproven therapy, for which we know nothing about either the long term effects, or the side effects. So, since they cant do animal testing anymore, lets test this out on Vets instead.
