C&p For New Claim Before C&p From Remand...


justrluk

Question

The VA amazes me at times. I was just notified of a C&P for an increase filed 3/25/2014 (FDC) scheduled for the 25th of this month. I have yet to hear about a C&P for a remanded issue with a remand date of 4/24/2013.

As long as there is movement, that is all that matters. I submitted another FDC June 14, and I would be surprised if I have my C&Ps before September. Good luck and keep us posted

navy - thanks for the support. It's a psych C&P and in my opinion they are always the worst.

I will. I'm getting really nervous about it. I always feel like a whipped puppy by the time they're over.

Update: Went to the C&P on Friday (25 July 2014). The interviewer was very kind. He said he had already read my file, and only had a few questions. He asked a handful of questions and hit a few weak spots (I broke twice). After all was over, he made recommendations for where I could pick up local care for psych issues (which I am looking into). He then said that right after the interview he would write and file his report. He then told me he was recommending that my condition had seriously degraded, and definitely due to SC condition. He also told me he was recommending in his report that I only work part-time. As I'm writing this, I'm getting a bit emotional. The peaks and valleys really suck (if you're bipolar you understand this).

When we discussed how the condition (bipolar/depression) affects my work, I told him about the swings and that when things get really bad I end up in the rest room for a while (hiding). He said it was positive that I had developed a coping mechanism, but it was surely not the best way to deal with my issues. I also went into detail about how the psych issues affected my home relationships and friendships (practically none at this point - I've alienated most of those that were really good friends). I don't know what the decision will be, but if anyone out there is dealing with their psych crap and haven't seen someone, I highly recommend doing so. Also, I'm on 4 psych meds and the swings still happen. Meds won't solve your problems/issues, but talking through issues can help a great deal.

I was surprised the exam turned into a counseling session, but I didn't realize how bad things were getting until I had to talk about them. If you're reading this, I apologize for the length but felt it necessary to reinforce those with psych issues getting help (go local, go often).

Also: Claim moved from "Gathering Evidence" to "Preparation for Decision" from Friday to today (28 July 2014). I think this is a personal best as far as time goes. I don't know when I could get a copy of the report, but I'm definitely interested in reading it.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
