    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

Yes, sweet victory can be a sad victory. I am so sorry to hear about Gio, Josh........that is a big loss for you.

and I learned to try not to dwell on the horrible reasons VA awarded my 1151 claim........

(and I try to get over the fact that they deliberately tried to cover up their own malpractice.)

I go to the initial VA that was negligent ,every week, and had no problems there when I needed some VA health care many years ago.

You need to hang on and enjoy this victory Josh........the best that you can, and many of us here understand exactly how you feel.

I think us 1151ers help others out there.

Believe me malpractice occurs at the best hospitals in the world and isn't just at the VA.

There is a lot to be said for forgiveness....But it is very difficult sometimes.

You are alive and have a lot to offer others.

I am going to make time to go over all of your past posts here.......

You NEVER gave up.

Please stay with us here as the VA decides the rating...... and it better be a GOOD one!

Thank you ever so much Berta for your comment regarding Gio. FYI I returned to the US about 3 weeks ago after 13 years living in Colombia and I now am repeatedly go through one after the other waves of feelings like I am wandering in a dreamscape.

I have been away for so long Berta that I do not even know what "goodies" I have archived here on Hadit during that time.

Before leaving there, I burned all the paperwork accumulated while in Colombia but brought back 5 hard drives I saved over the years. I would like to transfer that information but do not want to hook those drives to my new system here. The info is retrievable, I will just need to track down a service to retrieve it this coming year. Additionally, I have all Gio and I's photos on those drives so absolutely must retrieve that data.

Shyne-I, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I am working on moving forward at this point and breaking out of the haze.

Josh (El Gringo) Imagine, I was given this nickname there years ago.... Home so good to be home.... so good.

    • 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,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • 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.
