  • 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

MDMA therapy PTSD cure?

Question

Recommended Posts

  • 0

The findings of this study in veterans with war-related trauma will be compared to the findings from our flagship pilot study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD, which consisted primarily of women survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Previous studies suggest that war-related PTSD may be more prevalent and harder to cure than PTSD caused by other types of trauma, and this study may help establish the relationship between trauma etiology and treatment efficacy. 

I am not sure they use this type therapy at my VAMC  MH Clinic?

if they do its probably more for the MST Veterans or for the female...depending on the trauma that caused the condition?

I'll ask my therapist on my next CPT Session Thursday 11/29/ 18

I cannot see them curing my PTSD.  My stressor is weather in excess of 85-90 degrees, stupid but it is what it is.  I can function but I get distracted and have chest pains.  I would love to be over this but I also cannot see myself experimenting with a dangerous drug.

They have been talking about a cure for PTSD since that diagnosis was changed.  (It was formerly called "shell shock" and a few others.) . 

They have done both autopsies, and brain scans of living PTSD patients.  Both show a significant "brain change" that is physical.  That is, the brain is altered.  They will cure PTSD when they cure other nuerological disorders, such as parapalegia.  

Its all talk.  However, I personally welcome a "cure".    I would much rather be healed and no longer eligible for disability compensation.  If there are any 25 year olds out there who would like to trade me their healthy mind and body, for my disability comp, please have them call me.  

Years ago, my father said he would give me everything he owned to be my age again.  At first I thought, "Sure, bring it on", but, after thinking a little more carefully, its never a good idea to "sell" your health for any price.  You can get more money, but not your health back.  

What could you do with your "new found money", if your health ws too bad to even spend it?  Go to a nursing home, sometime, which will be literally "littered" with worn out bodies at least some of whom are very wealthy.  You should understand it then.

MDMA looks dangerous.

MDMA is still in testing.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
