Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery”instead of ‘I have a question.
Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
Post straightforward questions and then post background information.
Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
So I spoke with my primary doctor who I spoke to about filling one of these 21-2680 since my psychiatrist pretty much had no idea what he was filling out spent a night doing it. Which had quite a few errors on it but I submitted it in anyways for a quick denial last month. My primary doctor fixed the errors spent a week filling it out for me to submit. Now that this is a new application using the 21-2680 in the past two months, how does that look when they make a decision he’s my primary doctor who has been caring for me only since 2016, and the psychiatrist since mid 2017 or does it even matter both are VA employees ? Well not sure how it will go I can prepare my meals part Yes only if cold meals not trusted with oven or stove is correct but is cold meals really preparing your meals? Most things need to be cooked, and the driving is accurate I can drive anytime no restrictions when driving with my wife she takes care of the GPS so I won’t be mad about this denial at least the application is accurate. Anyone with any suggestions of what the denial will say?

Hey bud, I'm in the process of getting this done too. My psychiatrist isn't familiar with it. My wife and I filled out a moc copy to fill out what we think and why we believe we qualify for it. Howeve
