  • 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

Anxiety C & P Completed

Question

Good Morning,

Just wanted to share my experience during my Anxiety C & P. This site has helped me so much...I plan on sharing what is going on with everyone.

So I had my Anxiety C & P yesterday at QTC. Very nice Doctor, that asked me so many questions. She asked me about my childhood and about my time in the service. We went over limitations at work and recent transfers due to accommodation from my employer because they were made aware that I am a disabled vet due to my Restrictive Lung Disease. The Doctor was nice enough to tell me to look out for things like this with employer, because they are not supposed to treat me any different unless I ask for accomodations of my job performance is declining. I think that was very nice of her.

I think it went really well, she did mention that she knows that Respiratory Disease and Anxiety, short term memory loss,  go hand in hand and that she feels like this is brought on or aggravated by my Bronchiecstasis, Aspergilliosis, Sleep Apnea, and Asthma. She was very well prepared and surprised me because she mentioned things about my medical condition that you would not know of unless you read my file. She took the time to review my file beforehand. At one time she told me "I noticed that the provider mentioned on your previous C & P that she believes this disease is related to your service" I told her I was not aware of anything from my previous C & P because my is still being worked on. She mentioned that she noticed that I was very proud of my service, and that she sees a lot of vets that come in to the appointment and are negative, and are angry at the VA or angry at the system, and that some veterans think that the doctors and the VA are there to hurt them and go against them. She told me "I do not sense that from you, because I can tell you are proud of your service, and you have an actual disease that is affecting your quality of life." I told her it was the best thing I have done in my life. She asked me "if you knew that you would get this Lung Disease before I joined what would you have done?" I told her I would do it all over again without hesitation.

FYI: She did take a lot of notes while I was talking and I think I was starting to get a bit anxious during the exam. At one point she noticed I was fidgety and moving around a lot. She did her best to make me feel relaxed. And I did get a bit sentimental, which I hate doing in front of people, when she asked me what am I afraid of. I told her I am afraid of the future for my children, not being able to be there for them is the scariest thing in the world, because I have noticed and felt the limitations and the seriousness of my condition, that I have a feeling of uncertainty.

She took about 40 minutes with me, offered to check me out instead of lining up at the front desk, and told me she would type of the report, send it to VA the same day, and they go from there.

Sorry for the long rant, just wanted to share my experience.

It sounds like you had a Fair C&P and a good Dr.

but be aware of the things they mention  until you can get her Report Back.

Read what she mention in her report and what boxes she checked.

Much Appreciated, Buck52.

I was looking into how to get my C & P report. I might have to wait a bit. But I am hoping all is well.

Thanks again!

If this was a QTC C&P Exam,  they should have sent you a package for the date/time and location for your Exam, and some papers letting you know how to fax your travel pay and get conformation to send the VA AND & Also how to get your copy of  the exam.....if not wait about 2 or 3 weeks after the exam date and check with the VBA Office (Veterans Benefit Administration) at your local VAMC, Request a copy for this exam that was on this (date)

I don't think it will be at your local VAMC?

...But you can go to release of In formations Records Dept sign a FOIA and request this exam be sure and ask for the exam date. if they have it you can get a copy. matter fact do this first.

    • 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.
