  • 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

How To Help Us Cope

Question

I thought it might be fun to share our personal ways of coping with our common ailment.

For me: I like to go fishing by myself. No boat, no hassles, just sit and teach worms to swim.

I also have a 32 year old Honda M/C that I am slowly reviving. It now runs VERY nice and only needs paint and tires to finish-er off. I ride in all the local Charity Motorcycle rides right along side all the bada** Harleys and such. I don't do the after parties but, I ride alone and love it.

If you think this is a good idea, jump in and let's help each other out.

I think having a hobby like yours is great. Sometimes doing volunteer work can help you feel connected to the rest of society. I lost that feeling when I became TDIU.

Problem with Volunteer work for me is being around people.

Small children are OK for little bit then I get antsy and want to leave.

I choose hobbies that I can be alone and disconnect as much as possible.

I started gardening. It's useful, relaxing and more importantly a solo venture. It helps to be able to think of yourself as not being completely useless at life. I also am very 420 friendly I treat ptsd with that instead of all the "magic pills" they want to give me.

I agree with you US. I have not been out of my House much since I was medically retired last February. I live on one of the best Bass Lakes in America. I finally went fishing yesterday, no boat, just the Pole and Me fishing Lures. It was a beautiful day and it helped alittle, and my Wonderful Wife bought me a 1961 impala a month ago, looks like my Profile Pic, but 4 door and it needs work. So when I feel ok, I work on it alittle here and there. If my FDC and SSDI get completed soon, and go well, I plan on Volunteering at a Nursing Home around here, and get involved with a good Church, I hope.

    • 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.
