    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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

Jo, Don't shoot yourself in the foot! The VA is saying you have an Anxiety Disorder which can be service-connected and IS compensatable!

You need not spend so much time and energy focused on the Axis 2, Personality Disorder. It's on Axis 2 and has little bearing on your PRIMARY (Axis 1) diagnosis.

Remember, you YOU are not qualified to diagnose yourself! So, if you are unhappy with the diagnosis, you need to get an Independent Medical Examination, one from a Psychiatrist outside of the VA medical system

As for the allegations of hypnosis, if you honestly believe you were hypnotized against your will and absent informed consent, I sugest you contact the VA Office of Inspector General and report patient abuse. The VA can and will use hypnosis as well as a sodium amytal interview to rule out malingering or other kinds of psychiatric disorders - but they can not, by law, do this without your consent.

To me, it really sounds like you were experiencing a major flashback and disassociated during your C&P Exam. You had a brief psychotic reaction, so to speak, during your C&P Exam ... I haven't been in the psychiatric field for a long time, but my AFSC in the USAF was Psychiatric Technition.

You are terribly afraid of doctors and persons in authority. I think the VA would respect your wishes to be seen by only female providers, and you should NEVER be alone in an exam room with a male Dr. Tell the VA that you will file a 1151 Claim if you are ever injured during VA medical treatment!!

Hang in there!! ~Wings

If the VA is willing to admit service connection on any mental/emotional disorder the door is wide open for a higher rating. My diagnosis for mental disoder is wrong, but I get IU for it anyway. I have the personality disorder thing as well but it is axis 2. Axis 1 is what counts. Don't bother arguing with the VA about a diagnosis if it is a mental disorder because what matters is the percentage. It they say you are 100% for anxiety then so be it. They could say bipolar and 100% and you get the same money.

John999,

I have been trying since 1978 to claim one cent from the service. At this point John, what I didn't have, I have by now!!

John,

The Va knew that I would never be able to collect on the pension that they awarded me.

Berta has posed a logical question.

I filed for Anxiety with Depression and Headaches - with each filing. How does this become an acquired psychiatric disorder?

Thanks,

Josephine

If the VA is willing to admit that you aquired a mental/emotional problems in service or due to service just get the money and don't worry about the definitions or medical mumbo jumbo. Are you service connected as of this date?

John999,

No, I have only the pension. Not doing me any good and never will.

My claims file is on the desk of the male Psychiatrist to carry out the orders of the remand:

After the above development has been completed, the veteran's claims file should returned to the board of VA psychiatrists who participated in the April 2005 examination for clarification of the provided opinion. They should be requested to review the record and reconcile their opinion as to etiology in light of the evidence added since their examination of the veteran, including the May 2005 statement of Dr. B C. C and the January 2006 statement of Dr. M P.

The letter that I received from the AMC stated that they wanted a New Opinion. Dr. B has had it now for about 2 weeks, from what I can find out.

I did call to see if he wanted to meet with me and he told his secretary, it wasn't necessary at this time.

What ever his decision is, will be my answer. He didn't sign the first time, perhaps he didn't agree with all the lies.

Like you said, I don't care what they call me as long as they read all the information and leave out what they have no basis for.

They do know that I am prepared to take this to the Court of Appeals and this time, I will at least have a lawyer.

Thanks,

Josephine
