Well since this the most relevant conversation per date: 12/11/13.

I wanted to share an experience d/t insomnia. I was sexually assaulted by (ten years back) military chaplain while I was enlisted. I reported it to OSI. After a few months never received foia info. I went ahead with my claim using a fellow airmen testimony, military archdiocese counsel testimony, nexus letter from doctor from VA, and personal testimony. When I spoke with he military archdiocese he was able to confirm the incident per documents (Article15)...So i went through the process...I see the doctor at VA and receive ativan. I currently work as a nurse and do relatively well. Yet I have social anxiety, panic attacks, moments of unclear thinking, and some sleep disturbance. I had a c and p yesterday. I made it clear some of symptoms d/t the trauma. I am frightened that I went through this trouble of receiving benefits only to be denied. Can you be a competent nurse and still receive benefits? In the C and P I said I can fulfill my tasks but my problems make it complicated. The crux of my complaint is panic attacks, anxiety, social phobia, obsessive rituals to calm down, and trust issues(ptsd)....wondering if I will get denied...VA's rationale being that I am socially impaired? Just disheartening not knowing what the outcome will be when you have been assaulted by a military chaplain...figuring proof is enough...sad i have to play monkey for the doctors...

Thanks for reading

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
