Stressed Over Appeal Time Frame

Rate this question



I am still waiting for my BBE, but I have read on here that appeals can take years. My ptsd and bi-polar are so bad, i havent been able to work in over 2 years.. i am getting worse and my claim had all the information in my service record of break downs, mind jumping around not able to focus and a nexus letter for bi-polar.

Ptsd, I had worked security duty during 911 and after, in Naples italy. My biggest one was being shot at down town and I had a buddy statement to back this up but wames not given a CP exam. I have two civilian doctors i have been seeing who gave me ptsd diagnosis.

I'm glad i won 50%, but i really cant work.. hell i have a hard time just making it through the day. I know some of you have been there.. i hope someday to snap back.. anyway, i have a social security claim in on appeal from alj.. At least wife, is active duty and sticking by me. Its hard when you're with someone who wont leave the house hardley at all and forget about walmart.

The only thing worse than getting shot at and missed is getting shot at and hit. It hurts like hell when the adrenaline wears off and you suddenly realize it. You'll make it. You're Navy tough. Appeals do take years. Most of us have been through it and came out the other side in one piece. That's why you have us to help you carry the water. Vets do that for each other. Like Tbird said up above on the logo- Leave no one behind. You found your way here. That's half the battle.

Clear right
