    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.
     
     
    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

Seeing A New Psych Tuesday.


Recommended Posts

My last Psych. retired and I rarely go in for appointments anyway.

For years I have been taking 2 fluoxetine and 2 bupoprions every morning.

It seems that more and more all I do is stay in bed and watch tv.

I rarely get up before noon, when the house is empty. I have a bowl of cereal and a glass of V8 over the morning crossword puzzle then go back to my room.

I am wondering if a change in meds might bring me back to some motivation to do things. I go as many as6 days without showering, shaving and brushing my teeth.

A part of the problem is that we have had 2 of my grandsons as foster kids. They were taken away from my methhead daughter. I fully support giving them a sage place to live with regular meals, but I am irritable and avoid them. They are 5 and 6 and when they are not in school or daycare during the week, my son has been watching them until my wife gets home.

I am anxious (always) lately about this appointment. I am hesitant to be treated by a new Dr. and am afraid of change.

Also worried about the questionaire they sent. It asks if I have access to firearms. I have all my life and have neber had an incident. I worry that a new Dr. might be an anti-gun crusader and bar me from having mine.

Anyone dealt with Dr. Satya Chandragiri?

So far the new Dr. Has asked me my life story and upped the bupropion tablets from 75 to 100 mg. Now take one with a fluoxetine in the morning and repeat in the afternoon.

His advice so far centers on my avoidance and he wants me to "avoid the avoidance". Seems like we are going to follow up.
