Diagnosis - What does this mean

I really need to understand this. This is a listing from one of my C&P Exams


I don't know how this is going to work. I can't get copy and paste to work to put stuff on this message. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I am hoping the attached file will show what I want but I would much rather copy and paste and see it myself as I am trying to write the message.

Ok, this actually sounds like a in service exam, not a c and p exam.  "Chronic Adjustment disorder" is a term the military likes to use so the VA can deny.  

You need to fix this, unless there is other medical evidence which has already done so.  

Of course, you still need these 3 things for service connection, and what you posted does not document "any" of those.  

1.  Current diagnosis.  "Chronic adjustment disorder" won't win benefits.  You need a diagnosis of "depression", "PTSD", or bipollar disorder etc.  Check your records and see if you alrady have said diagnosis, as you wont be getting benefits with the evidence in this exam.  IT'S BAD.  

2.  In service event or aggravation.  

3.  Nexus, or docs opinion that your "diagnosis" is at least as likely as not due to xy event in service.

Adjustment disorder is used to show that you have not adjusted to civilian life and it is your fault.  Check your service medical records and see if they diagnosed you with something or anything else while you were still in service.  If adjustment disorder was diagnosed while in service that is also bad.  How many years were you in and did you see combat and what was the character of your discharge?

"Adjustment disorder" is a "code" from the "Department of the Unfair Insurance company" that they "wont pay".  

You need a real doc; you can try another VA doc, or you will need an IMO/IME.

    • 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.
