I believe this question wants to know how much time he lost from work due to his illness, while he was employed, but it is vague. Always error on the side of the vet. Since it's unclear, I would add up any time he missed work since 2012 due to his illness and the time he has lost since the doctor ordered him off of work. As long as you can explain where you number came from, if the Va asks, you're fine.

does it matter that hes a teacher and he actually doesnt work a year since they off for the summer and holiday, he misses about 2 mths total ever school year since 2012 and just this 2014-15 year he missed 4 mths in a school year when he got worse
