    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?”

An interesting claim-he proved Benefit of Doubt.(Relative Equipoise)

The VA should always consider Benefit of Doubt when the evidence is equally for and against the claim.

I don't trust them to weigh evidence properly.I feel the positive evidence needs to outweigh the negative.

I am surprised that this vet succeeded.He did have documented symptoms of anxiety while in service so this was the nexus.

Berta,

I certainly don't trust any of them. I am making every attempt to prove the means by which this C&P was conducted by the two psychiatrist and have it discredited.

I am doing it , because they did it. No other reason.

Thanks for taking the time to read this one. I thought I would research some others.

This is why I needed the letter from Dr. C.

He treated me for anxiety in service and dispensed the medication and also referred me to the two psychiatrist. It is in black and white in my SMR'S.

When you read the remand, it is the psychiatric records that have been missing from my claims file since my first filing date of 1978.

The other adminstrative records are from the Commanding Officer, explaining the reasons for my early discharge and it was not a personality problem.

The two psychiatrist will not explain their etilogy as they know that they lied and changed my military and private medical records.

I do not have a Historian Personality. If they wanted to disqualify me, they should have picked a better one than that.

They received my claims file on October 7th and have returned it. This is the only comment they made.

C- File Read

Letter by DR. C. read

Letter by DR. P read

No evidence to alter conclusion.

Signed Dr. L and Dr. B.

My claims file will be back at the AMC on Monday. They refuse to follow the order of the BVA and the Remand.

Thanks again Berta,

Josephine
