Hello.

 

So I thought I might actually introduce myself since I already posted. Reverse order of operations, I suppose.

 

Anyway, I was enlisted in the AF until 2010, when I was medically boarded out.

My original C&P exam was essentially done for me, so a LOT of stuff on this site confuses me. I am not good with the jargon as since my original exams, I pretty much avoided the VA (all medical stuff was done outside of them)... So if I seem a bit daft regarding this stuff, it's because I am.

 

I might be able to be of assistance in the sense that my Service Connected disabilities are for eating disorder, depression, and shoulder... and the first it seems is elusive in terms of information regarding VA disability. Or maybe that's not the best way of putting it... but it seems like people on this forum try to get a connection for it, but haven't been able to. Mine was originally granted a % by having it put with depression... who knows this time around as I was called up for re-exam and had a fresh exam done recently by a contractor.

 

What else? I have a dog and live in an apartment in a historic home that was converted into apartments...

Welcome here! We have an acronym list here somewhere....

VA knows more about eating disorders than they used to:

http://www.index.va.gov/search/va/view.jsp?FV=http://www.va.gov/vetapp15/Files5/1538457.txt

This case has a rating for bulimia nervosa and the diagnostic code.

The veteran had an MH issue rating and BVA granted  her 30% from 10% for the eating disorder.

Other BVA decisions however show them lumping in the eating disorder with PTSD or other MH diagnosis.

Hello Berta!
My original C&P was in 2010. I am glad to see things might be improving now :)

I wonder if that's why this past time it seemed they were addressing the issues separately. I know she filled out two DBQs (based on the questions she asked me and by poking around - I am guessing they were DBQs) at least.

I do also feel that the person who did the mental health things was a lot more thorough than the lady who did my shoulder exam this time (based on how the doctor did it last go around)

Anyway, thanks for the information

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
