    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?”

13 Ptsd Meetings , 12 Anger Management


doogie

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.

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.
