    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

C&p W/of C-File

Question

So I had my comp and pen last summer and I recently got a copy of it and they didn't have my c-file and each doctor even mentioned that they held it for a week after requesting it.

On my ptsd I got a gaf of 60 including a diagnosis of alcohol abuse in partial remission.

The symptoms he listed were: anxiety, chronic sleep impairment, flattened affect, and difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships.

He said that if my stressors can be conceded then it is more likely than not that his ptsd was caused during military service based upon my getting hit with an ied and also sweeping a canal for the bodies of two of our Marines.

Also my claim for vertigo when I saw the doctor he mentioned that I was unable to properly touch my finger to my nose with my eyes closed and maintain balance without visual spatial awareness and that it is most likely due to a mtbi. I am waiting for Veterans Evaluation Service to schedule my comp and pen for that and when I last spoke to my vso he said they anticipated that mid February that they would have all evidence needed.

Since my c-file which has documentation about my being in an ied, doing casevacs etc if they still don't have it should I refuse to be seen till they have it?

Also I'm most likely going to be getting a IMO from a psychologist who works with many AD, reserve and veteran people especially with claims. My primary reason for doing that is that the few symptoms he listed aren't remotely close to all of them. Simply looking at the last year of my med recs would tell you that.

I'm just wondering if sending in an IMO now would end up backfiring in the event they were already giving me a favorable rating. If I wait and get 50 I would be ok with that but if I turn one in I don't want to be stuck waiting months and months its already been 20.

Thank

He is saying service caused your ptsd. Now if the RO plays ball and doesn't disregard his exam. you are in good shape.

That's what I assumed but I've never heard it phrased that way. Normally secondary refers to someone basically getting traits of said disorder from being around someone with a disorder.

Like kids raised by a parent with a PD.

Thanks!

"Normally secondary refers to someone basically getting traits of said disorder from being around someone with a disorder. "

That is a potential psychological reality....however.........

"Also he said ptsd secondary to military service, what is that?"

It means ,regarding what you told us here, that you experienced the supernatural aspect of warfare.

"He said that if my stressors can be conceded then it is more likely than not that his ptsd was caused during military service based upon my getting hit with an ied and also sweeping a canal for the bodies of two of our Marines."

Similiar a little to 2 of my husband's stressors ( Danang Vietnam 65-66) 100% SC P % T for PTSD.

PTSD is not rated,however, as to how much trauma you experienced (full blown combat trauma can take years to manifest itself)....

it is rated on it's affect to you socially, emotionally, in the work environment, and in many other aspects of your life,

    • 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.
