    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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

Not A Good Start.



I was actually just scolded for letting the schools VA rep get the syllabus for my classes and working with him send them to the VA. She said that it was my job and she does not like that. She said it is problem solving and I needed to show her I can. Are they serious! Are we to be treated like children who don't know how the world works. How can I filed a complaint or do they just not care. I promise you that if they keep this up I will tell her where she can stick it.

A very angry

I don't know but I am having to go there because of how bad my disabilities have become not to be scolded and treated like I'm in middle school trying to prove that I can do the work. I served as a medic in the army. I worked on many people. I am currently working in a job that I have had for 9 years. I believe I have proved to everyone that I know how to do things. Maybe it would be worthwhile sending an email to Bob McDonald about this if other people are having similar problems.

I guess if I get this angry maybe I should put in for tdui. I have not put in because I am working until 3/20 then I will be in voc rehab. I'm thinking that if she keeps doing this crap I will not make it through the training. So opinions please . Should I put in for trying and if so when. Should I wait until I leave my work?

"I was actually just scolded for letting the schools VA rep get the syllabus for my classes and working with him send them to the VA."

Why would the School's vet rep have to obtain your syllabus? or send them to the VA?

A syllabus can be pretty intimidating- I know because I have had plenty of them.

Maybe you mean someone explained the syllabus to you? If so that should not have warranted anyone scolding you.

I couldn't wait to get my syllabus for my courses. But some of them were horrifying!

They involve every aspect of the course requirements and need to be referred to often if you need to prepare thesis papers.

Good luck in school.

You are eligible for reasonable accommodations to your disability and also for remedial help if needed.

The vocational rehabilitation rep has been sending me nuts asking for the syllabus for the classes. She never said anything thing about that I needed to go to each teacher to get them .she just sent me to the school. The schools VA rep took what I needed and said that he would get it all for me.

She may be a control freak unfit to work at regular civilian employment; the government is full of people like that.

If you are offended, then it's a problem. Maybe contact her supervisor after writing up your feelings in diplomatic language but take some official action so it's on record.

It's not good to let things that bother you build up.

hang tough! :smile:

I don’t know what her problem is. All I know is that I am fighting hard to be able to work but the more of this crap that happens the more I want to turn in paperwork for TDUI and just not have to mess with it anymore. I have been thinking about putting in for TDUI and using the schooling as a backup sense I’m sure TDUI will be denied.

Dealing w/VocRehab can be a pain. They sent my stuff to an old address(from yrs ago because she was too lazy to check the current address) and then reamed me, about not returning the paperwork. Her main problem was that she had a claim and it was not going well. I spent about 45min - hour explaining how she could win her claim and by then her attitude had changed.

Myself, I would wait until I wasn't working and then apply for TDIU. jmo
