  • 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

QTC form of questions for tbi C&P by a Psychologist

Question

Greetings,

Instead of dbq style questions a 'VA' MD might ask, I was told to prepare for open descriptions of my symptoms for the 'QTC' Psychiatrist.

In TBI, all the secondaries are all knotted up like a fist so I don't know how to generally prepare for something as complex as that: mixing in Maslow's 'Hierarchy of Needs' for motivations. DBQ's are simpler, as is following along the TBI schedule form questionnaire.

Does anyone have any clue as what to expect? My previous QTC PhD C&P was a bomb for Anxiety, because when I went "Duh", it was interpreted as it never happened: no matter that all my paperwork explained it thoroughly and was handed to her. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Should I fill out my own DBQ's referencing quotes from official documents, and turn those in? I certainly can't battle wits with a South Korean Psychiatrist, and hope to win anyway with a delayed random short-term memory. And I cannot survive mvuh longer living in a homeless shelter with 50 open-mouth coughs at night, exposed fiberglass above my head, and breathing through my bi-pap machine. Please help me.

She was trying to get inside your Brain...to screw you around , don't sound good.

 if they ask you questions you can't answer or you don't know  just say something like  well I'm not a medical Dr so I can't answer that,  and have pen and pad with you and write that down. (that will cool her down some) That your taking notes of the exam will tell her your intelligent enough to address some questions in the exam.

sounds like to me she was just trying to trip you up and we veterans are prone to that and she knows it .

 she probably has done enough exams to know how...so  when they ask questions your not sure about just state you your not a medical Dr or medical expert  you can't answer that.

TBI Exams must be a lot different than PTSD Exams?  So I could be wrong on this but if this was me this is what I'd say

They should be some members here on hadit  that has had a TBI Exam  maybe they will chime in.

Also you could do this  when she ask about things..> you do know about but you don't know how to give her a good answer  just  ask her or tell her  well I am not sure how to give you a good answer to that but if you read in my medical records  they should give you the information your asking me about   because Dr I am no Medical expert.

When you get a copy of this exam and she put a lot things in it she never talked to you about and said she would do one thing and never did it instead the oppsite just back ass Backwards  that would mess up your claim

Request another C&P  b/c You feel this exam was Inadequate.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • 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
