    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 Exam (Ptsd/anxiety/insomnia/depression)

Question

Hey all,

I have an exam in 3 days for my mental health claim. I am very very nervious about reliving out loud what is running in my head every day. I only have had one GAF score so far and it was a 23. That is one of the lower GAF scores i saw so far when looking around. I had no idea what that was until recently. I was a communications spec (25c) for a medical unit in Iraq and saw a ton of pretty bad stuff to include holding a guy that got hit by a mortar that should have hit me. is there any heads up that anyone can give me? I'll make sure and update what happens in the exam as well.

thanks in advance

With that GAF and hopefully your other checked symptoms on the C&P you should get 70%. I have a claim in to up my PTSD, the Examiner listed everything as Severe and I only got 30%. I was low balled due to the Navy retiring me in February for Medical and the VA figured I was good to go. Good luck and keep us posted bud.

A GAF score of 23 indicates active psychosis and that you should be in an institution because you are a constant danger to yourself and others. Google GAF and see what a score of 23 means. If your symptoms match the GAF you should be 100%.

Thanks for the comments. i have very frequent "day dreams" where everything feels like im back there. that and an overdose and being placed in a metal ward for a few days... the history is sort of there. the meds help but dont come close to fixing anything, just helps them build up. been through one divorce and struggling through this marriage, though we re still together. same story as many on here im sure. it seems to be the constant minute by minute reminders and faces and events that relive in my head that have the VA concerned. iv been home since 2005

Behavior is considerably influenced by delusions or hallucinations OR serious impairment, in communication or judgment (e.g., sometimes incoherent, acts grossly inappropriately, suicidal preoccupation) OR inability to function in almost all areas (e.g., stays in bed all day, no job, home, or friends)

that actually sounds about right John999

    • 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.
