  • 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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
