    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

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forums and just wanted to introduce myself. Names eric I've got 5 tours under my belt, I'm in a WTU right now &, as I was searching for information I stumbled across this site &, read a ton of good information here. I have a ton of issues civil legal & service with that comes a ton of first hand experience that I would be more than happy to pass along. Also I'm going to be posting with questions of my own in hopes of finding good information.

Hello veterans. I just wanted to take a few minutes and introduce myself. I'm William (Will) Watson, and I am an Army veteran. My combined service-connected disability rating is 60% for Generalized Anxiety Disorder w/PTSD (50%), Hypertension (10%), Tinnitus (10%) and Allergic Rhinitis (0%). Since 1996, I have been denied for service incurred (onset) PSVT (Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia), Asthma and Chronic Low Back Pain. I claimed all of these conditions when I was discharged because I had been treated for and had tests confirm each condition. I've been on Social Security Disability since August 2012 for a combination of all of my conditions, and have been unemployed since January 2009 as a result of my conditions.

I actually signed up on this forum some time ago, but haven't felt like I had much to contribute or knew the types of questions to ask until now. I'm probably a little bit late in posting here as I have a DRO hearing tomorrow at the Nashville VA Regional Office. I submitted an NOD in March of 2012, and have recently applied for TDIU, so this along with the NOD on previous denials will (to the best of my understanding) be what's being reviewed tomorrow at the hearing. My VSO rep is DAV (Disabled American Veterans). They told me that my packet is solid and that I shouldn't have any issues with getting TDIU, but I still need to make a copy for the DRO, break things down into separate evidence files and do coversheets. It looks like I've got a long day ahead!

I'm glad I'm here. I hope that I learn something that can help me as well as help other disabled veterans. I already have a page on Facebook called Disabled Military Veterans where I post helpful VA related things that I find, or updates that I learn about. Feel free to check the page out and comment. I'd like to continue to help veterans any way that I can. Thank each and every one of you for your service, and good luck to you with your claims.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
