  • 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

Personality Disorders In New Vets

Recommended Posts

http://www.vawatchdog.org/nfDEC06/nf122506-3.htm

"Military records show that since 2003, 4,092 Army soldiers and another 11,296 men and women in other branches of the armed services have been discharged after being diagnosed with the disorder."

This is quite an article at Watchdog.

And of course I sure do not believe the rate of PD is anywhere near what the mil thinks it is.

It is the easiest and cheapest way to get rid of a vet with psychological problems. They did it during Vietnam to many PTSD vets. Vets who got drug problems were booted out on the basis of PD if they were lucky and it was not a BCD. Once they hang the PD diagnosis around your neck you never get rid of it entirely. What you get if you are lucky is the VA surperimposes real psychiatric conditions on the PD. If you don't file within one year of discharge you are usually screwed. You notice the military has dropped the requirements for enlistment and the standards are lower. That is because there is a war on and who wants to get their butts shot off?

I have thought of about hundred things to type on this subject, but believe that I will refrain at this time.

I purchased the DSM - IV Book to see if I could figure out which one was the right fit for me.

I am still looking for it!!

Using personality disorder is a crummy way not to pay a Veteran who should be entitled to a claim

CNN's Anderson Cooper did a story on a soldier who is suffering from PTSD, his father works for CNN, the soldier was notified he was going back to Iraq for another tour and on his 30 day leave before being deployed, he refused to go back to base, his mom called the unit and a Sergeant told her look we all have problems his ass better be on that plane and hung up on her.

Long story short is the guy gets a gun and there is a police stand off, he goes to jail the Army discharges him on a PDO discharge and told CNN that when he gets out of jail he can go to the VA for help with the PTSD which we all know is a crock of shit, DOD gave AC the 800 numbers for the NCPTSD but we know this vet is going to get screwed by the system, regardless if AC did the story or not. By the time he gets out of jail, he will just be another forgotten vet.

I think this is only going to get worse, not better here is what I wrote on it yesterday http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/12/25/114717/82

    • 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.
