    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

I also have not see all these other alternative doctors.  Are they hiding in the farthest parts of the hospital where no one can find them?  Maybe the basement?!?!

I will say I talked to my doctor about taking a drug that has no habit forming relationship to it.  The problem is it takes 3-4 weeks to take effect, so your body has to get loaded with enough of this to block the pain receptors in my body.  Other problem is I can't just stop taking it now and It would take that amount of weeks to tapper off.  She did offer me controlled doses of opioids to get past the bad days.  I save those for surgery days.  

Anyways all I see is doctors guessing at how to fix these issues with soldiers and they are throwing pasta at the wall to see what sticks.

Also what is up with the new person at the hospital greeting everyone???  I assume this is their answer to help curb suicide?  She would make sure to make contact and really ask you how you are doing and how she could help.  Just strange as had never see a person there like this in 6 years.

I do not know about this.  I take pain meds in the lowest does possible to control pain so I can function and sleep.  I am still in pain but it is bearable.  I noted that they are going to stop using

The problem with this is that those that actually need pain medication  cannot get them. I was given some stuff to help me with back and knee pain.. it did nothing to help.. and the VA primary care do

There's an old 96 year old War War II  Veteran that meets you at my VAMC EVERY MORNING FROM 5:00AM to 10:00A.M. he is in his old WAR WAR II UNIFORM with his medals pin on.

 he has been greeting Veterans there as long as I been going there  from 1999..he is a pleasure to talk with  he can tell some  fantastic WWII Stories  he is very hearing Impaired. but he sure gets his stories across... he sets in his mobilized wheel chair every Morning 5 days a week   rain or shine   freezing weather at the main entrance to the Hospital  he is there.

That is so cool.  It probably keeps him alive and other veterans alive too.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
