  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

After Recent C&p I Have One Concern.

Question

During the C&P the examiner asked me about harming others.

I started thinking about those I had killed or wounded and started crying. I told her I did not want to ever hurt anyone again. It took a little doing to calm down and get the subject changed.

I don't know if I shot myself in the foot or not?

I am NOT going to lie about this stuff for anyone or anything!

USDART.... thanks for sharing your story. I will admit I feel your pain brother and to be honest I felt emotional just reading the few words you posted. I am a Marine, but before that I was a man, one that doesn't show emotion very often especially in front of others. When I had my C&P exam I was asked the same questions and sitting on that couch in that office my heart began to race. Before my exam I thought I had prepared myself for any question that was thrown at me, but I was wrong. My emotions took over and I was unable to answer the question. Completing 3 combat tours in Iraq I have done numerous things in my life that have left permanent scars on my brain.

I know its easier said than done, but don't worry about your answer brother I think it will come out in your favor. Once again I will say I feel your pain....I live with your pain. I hope one day you will be able to find peace and the VA will honor the benefits you deserve.

Thanks for the encouragement! I was afraid they wanted to hear I was violent toward others.

I have already had all that stuff I will ever need.

Actually, it is good to say what we were exposed too, and that we are still messed up, we just don't want to hurt anyone else. Us being emotional shows the VA, that we are messed up, but not so incapacitated that we can not pay are bills or function somewhat. Good luck to you and keep us posted. My C&P is on Friday, and I promise you that this weekend I will be writing on here, telling you guys about my emotional breakdown, Lol.

    • 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.
