Diagnosis - What does this mean

Recommended Posts

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?
