    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

Josephine,

I can't remember which thread --but you posted the other day asking how we could understand what we read.

The answer is --

I don't know.

I guess it takes time.

I can read laws and understand them.

I can read technical information and understand it.

I can read almost ANY information and understand it with little difficulty.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology / Communication. I have a Mater's Degree in Communication. I have been teaching at the college level since 1993.

And the VA has me STUMPED!!!

Every time I think I find an answer - the answer raises 12 more questions which have thirty-seven different answers -- and all the answers tangle into and around each other in a way that it is hard to make sense out of any of it.

I have spent hours and hours for months and months reading this stuff -- and I feel like I have just touched the tip of it.

Those in the group who have spent more time (years, I think) seem to have a pretty solid grasp of much of the information.

So the best the rest of us can do is research the best we can, ask for help when we don't understand, support each other -- and keep on keepin' on.

Free and Carlie,

Yes, I did post that just the other day and when I went through my claims, I realized that I couldn't understand them either.

I wanted ones out there, who may have trouble with their claims, to see if mine would give them any direction to go.

I feel that the 2nd C&P was seeking a denial. That is what I have stated in my letters to the BVA. Why did I need another C&P within 5 months of the first one?

She the lady doctor, did nothing to add to my diagnosis. She typed up a report to slander me and to dis-credit my claim and why does the male psychiatrist refuse to sign the C&P?

Her C&P write - up is a doozey! Not one shred of evidence in either military or private medical records for her to come up with her opinion and certainly not from me.

As I have stated to everyone." Never walk into a room with two doctors." If they won't allow anyone to go back with you, you may assume there is a reason, that you are not thinking about.

Why did the BVA direct the claims file to go back to the two psychiatrist that participated in that examination, when I had turned the letter by Dr. B. C into the R.O and also a copy to them, with a rebuttal to her accusations.

Why did the XXXXXXXX, West Va. Office refuse me a new C&P?

I have raised all of these questions to the BVA.

As John stated, " How did they change diagnosis on me and Why"?

Thanks,

Josephine
