  • 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

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
