13 Ptsd Meetings , 12 Anger Management

Question

ALL THIS HAPPENS IN A THREE MONTH PERIOD

i have 12 psyc exams at the ELIZABETH CITY NC VA CLINIC.

I just had a VET friend put a 38 cal to his head and blew his brains out,i had such a bad time handling it i went to the va to see a psyc and this is what i ended up getting plus 50 mg zolof

I am actually envious of him,I wouldn"t mind being out of this dark world i live in myself

Also 13 ptsd meetings at the same clinic

At least 2 in HAMPTON VA one with a psyc med MD ,and one with a sleep evaluation MD

I have done 4 exams already

I was diagnosed in the civillian hospital with OSA [uNTREATED] AT LEAST 2 TIMES with carbon dioxide retention [i never mentioned a sleep problem to them]

I talked to the sleep clinic and showed them the hospital reports and the said that i will be referred for th 2 night sleep, test

I am currently 30% PTSD .

Does anyone think all the test if i get a CPAP will help my PTSD claim?

If your OSA is treated it will sure help your depression. OSA is not causing your PTSD. It is not helping it. If you can somehow show your OSA is service connected that would be great.

ALL THIS HAPPENS IN A THREE MONTH PERIOD

i have 12 psyc exams at the ELIZABETH CITY NC VA CLINIC.

How and why would there be "12 psyc exams" scheduled in "a three month period" of time

at a VA clinic?

This would be wayyyyyyyy - overboard - unnecessary.

Are you sure these were "exams" ?

doogie,

The "13 PTSD therapy" just sounds like one of the regular PTSD group therapy

modules. It in no way means you are "completely mad", just a type of therapy

VA can provide.

Therapy is key and for many, myself included - continues for years.

There is no quick fix, that I know of.

Even after these "13 PTSD therapy" you have posted, therapy usually

continues for much, much longer than this.

From what you have posted, you are probably just in the beginning stages of receiving therapy.

Try to stick with it as it is in your best interest.

    • 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.
