Violent to peaceful

Question

Hello everyone I'm back. How's it going. Good I hope far as my mind set it has changed. After years of counseling and anti psychotics I have realized violence isn't the answer to my problems. I can't lie these past years I have been pretty much in isolation I only leave home to go to the store or fishing. I still have violent thoughts but I don't feed into my thoughts. I'm still having nightmares man if y'all only knew how many CPAP machines I have destroyed in my sleep the number of times my girl have been hit by my in my sleep. I'm still one dizzy camper I guess from tinnitus. Hey after waking up do any of y'all have hallucinations I see a black spider  crawling around are a bunch of binary codes all over my room I can't lie all I love about life is fishing I have moved since last July away from friends and family I finally moved I wish I could have moved on the lake like a couple my old buddies on here but I live close to a bunch of lakes and I guess that's good enough. I still have major anxiety around to many people so pretty much all is the same only thing that has changed is my reaction time at first I use to attack first then think now I think before I attack which I don't attack no more I don't fight I don't even look people in the face and I try to tell everyone hello my violent days is over I won't squeeze my years of absence all in this one post but I have more to tell y'all I left I need some buddies who can relate with me ANG guess what I miss y'all kind words so here I am I do have some stressful stuff going on the va sent my tdiu or total disability to my old address so last month out of the blue they tell me that I'm getting paid for 90% and not at 100% total disability well of course I freaked out got dizzy and my thoughts was all over the place sooooo today is the first and guess what they cut my cash by 1200 dollars unexpectedly bills will go unpaid credit will start to deteriorate starting today I went to the office on the 17th of this month hoping that I could fill the right paperwork out that they sent to the wrong address hoping this stop them from cutting my cash noooooooope it didn't I am officially screwed as of today bouncing back from moving my family to the high desert away from the inner city drama into my new quiet place but yup normally I would have a violent reaction and have crazy violent thoughts and threats but nope I am calm I am mad but not violent I will try to solve this situation with niceness and calmness I have realized its no civilian FUALT that this has happened so this is where I'm at happy fourth y'all I'm back for now ???

Welcome back!

It might be worth looking into the VA hardship program. Depending on your situation, it could help speed up everything.

Yeah I filed for hardship and wrote a letter of support begging and pleading for them not to unexpectedly cut that part off of my payment off I could not go to sleep last night scared hands shaking knowing when I woke up I would be screwed but I'm going to handle this with a new attitude I won't allow myself to go back to my dark place so I'm just hoping that they fix this situation I found out after your decision the tdiu department don't communicate with your doctors to see if you are fit to work they just send you the information and if you don't get it or respond they will cut the tdiu part of your payment I take this as a stepping stone to better the way I react to things in stressful situations

This is why all veteran that receive TDIU Comp  should send in that Employment questioner every year.   21-4140-1

I would recommend you get an experienced VA attorney for this.

IF VA sent you a reduction letter...I believe you can Nod that decision  request a DRO Hearing at your R.O. and  try your best to state your case at the DRO Hearing , also be good to get an IMO to show your S.C. Disability has not improved.

Missing a C&P or failing to send in the 21-4140-1  IU Employment Letter  is just a way for them to beat ya out of your benefits...Don't let them do that.

IMO (Independent Medical Opinion) usually from a specialist Dr in the field of medicine that treats your type of disability.

We don't know what your disability is?

The VA Medical records could help too if you been getting treatment there? if you get a DRO Hearing  you need to let them know your disability has not improved and let them know your reason you never sent in the 21-4140-1 Employment Questioner. or Missed  a C&P Exam....  you do this with evidence like medical records and lay statements from family and friends.

Also let them know it will be hardship on you and your family  to stop/cut your 100% disability benefits.
