  • 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.

    • 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.
