  • 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

TBI and allergic to most drugs

Question

Do you have to do TBI and mental health drugs to get rated over 30% if you have a current nexus (100%) and IMO (70%)?

I am chemically sensitive 1/8 Cherokee Indian as 20% of you may be.

I refuse to be a dead lab-rat for drug companies. I just have done the mildest dose (10 mg) of the mildest anxiety drug flouxetine, and had internal bleeding, open sores due to Sun exposure (!!), intoxication, and bowel/bladder elimination restrictions (in 4 days.) So now they want to try some other unproven drug for sleep: an SSRI which is an internal organ killer - suicide, kidneys, liver, heart, seizures? What the hell, it's not their body and they get paid by the drug companies to kill us (??)

** Is that the only choice? Are we coerced into killing ourselves internally for drug company test-rats to receive compensation for our service connected injuries? That is not right.

 

Peace.

Due to my Chronic Crohn's Disease, and 2 blood transfusions, I am not able to take most medicines like normal people. I will say that I have tried to take most Meds that Docs have attempted to use to treat my multitude of health issues, both physical and mental. To be honest, for the most part, whether you take meds or not has nothing to do with Hard Physical Medical Evidence like, X Rays, MRIs and other evidence. I have had easily over 50 scans, or MRIs of some sorts over the last couple years, and that alone smacks the Docs with hard evidence that cant be argued. Again as stated in the CFR guidelines, most disabilities are granted SC based on Disability, Condition, and Symptoms. Good luck

Cool! Could you please point me to the CFR guidelines for TBI, TDIU, Anxiety, and secondary to TBI/ headaches, sleep apnea, depression, Tinnitus-hearing loss-vertigo/Menierres?

CFR guidelines were very effective in getting Chapter 31 educational benefits. Unfortunately, I failed my school's exit board exam 4 times before I got my TBI Dx (doah!) I spent months of living expenses on high dollar tutoring programs (twice) that were pretty much for nothing except wasting precious time: something I never have enough of these days with chronic fatigue and a slow brain.

Thanks again for the hope and leads.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
