    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

Question

This letter dated 1996 where i applied for ptsd was denied, but this is what it says

Psychological Examination, reports that this is a feisy retired veteran who emotionally

continues to live in the military service. his conditin show evidence of a potential for

an active condition of post traumatic stress disorder.....however at the present time it

remains incipient and has not yet precipitated into a full blown syndrome. shame on me

for not filling a NOD or sometime, But i go tomorrow and do it all again, suggestions

You had the illness at the time but it had not progresses into a Full Blown condition.

You can still use it. Did you get a rating then?

Be honest with the Doctor. Give him copies of anything that you have. You have nothing to loose.

I have never been for a PTSD, C&P. If you can't sleep say so, If you have trouble getting along with your neighbors and at your job, say so. If you feel like crying do so.

If combat is related, tell him.

Let the doctor feel what you are saying. Get it all out!!!

If possible take your wife back there with you. Try to not go it alone.
