Question

Hello to all, I am new here on the forum; however, I had a question that would really set me at ease to get an answer on.

My military psychiatrist gave me a diagnosis of BI-POLAR DISORDER and initiated a MEB process on me right before getting sent to an acute behavioral treatment facility for 35 days.

There, I received a diagnosis of PTSD and DEPRESSIVE DISORDER (NOS)... A MEB was started on me and now I am in WTU, a MEB for bi-polar disorder. After those really long ass NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING PAPERWORK CAME BACK, the psychiatrist then changed my diagnosis to ANXIETY DISORDER (NOS) AND PERSONALITY DISORDER.

I don't know what to do right now.

From the very beginning I was in disagreement with his bi-polar diagnosis and I even let him know that, but he still kept it.

I suffered an accident over a year ago that brought on all of my symptoms that I currently suffer from now. What should I do? Will they attempt to stop my MEB?..

.
I already have QTC appointments set up for 2 days from now... Can QTC rule that my diagnosis should in-fact be PTSD? IS ANXIETY DISORDER (NOS) EVEN A BOARDABLE CONDITION?

WILL THE PERSONALITY DISORDER LABELS INTERFERE WITH ANYTHING?

I have already contacted JAG and will be waiting to hear back from them after the weekend. I hope I may be able to straighten all of this mess out soon.

Thank you!

hi you may also want to check out Active Duty MEB/PEB Physical OR Medical Evaluation Forum it is not associated with hadit.com but it does deal with MEB/PEB for active duty and probably would be able to give you some advice on the active duty side.

Any DX that mentions a personality disorder is bad news. A screw job is coming your way regards to MEB/PEB.

screw job? And will the PEB overlook the personality disorder and even possibly QTC revise the Anxiety Disorder into what it should be?

Can Anxiety disorder still be boardable? Can I still be honorably discharged with a personality disorder on there? And how can I make my point that my psychiatrist is a dumbass listing off Avoidant and Dependant personality disorders on top of Anxiety (NOS) like he doesn't even want to give a diagnosis. Can JAG/IDES psychiatrists fix this?

"I suffered an accident over a year ago that brought on all of my symptoms that I currently suffer from now."

Was this an accident that caused you to have a documented concussion or a potential TBI diagnosis?

What is the nexus between the accident and "all of the symptoms" you currently have?

.

"I already have QTC appointments set up for 2 days from now... Can QTC rule that my diagnosis should in-fact be PTSD?"

Possibly but not enough info here to even guess.

"WILL THE PERSONALITY DISORDER LABELS INTERFERE WITH ANYTHING?"

Possibly as well.

"I have already contacted JAG and will be waiting to hear back from them after the weekend. I hope I may be able to straighten all of this mess out soon."

Yes, good idea,.You need to talk to a JAG and a PEBLO (unless the JAG acts in that role as well)

This , as well as the link Tbird gave you, are excellent links:

http://nlgmltf.org/military-law-library/publications/military-medical-policies/

This is the DOD document ( January 2014 version) referenced in the above link:

http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/133214p.pdf

Personality disorder situations are on page 14.

I assume there are no serious detrimental records or charges in your 201 file.

I mentioned concussion and TBI because their residuals can often appear as changes to one's personality.

I also suggest that you get a complete copy of all of your military records when you are disacharged and get a list of 'buddys', in your unit and their contact info, if , as a veteran, you need to contact them for your VA claim.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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 first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
