    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

non service connected Bipolar ?

Question

So im looking on this e-benefits website and just browsing around and i noticed i have an old claim labeled non-service connected bipolar.

Now i've never filed a claim but i was was forced to see someone for anger management post deployment in 06.

is it possible a doctor put this claim in or maybe i did it while in a drunken blackout which is also entirely possible.  Thoughts?

Typically if you don't put in for it then it is not ever looked at.  Now if you had something happen in service and a doctor opinioned in on what they thought you had and it could be Bipolar, then it is possible.  Now if you just put in for it when you were drunk , then you would have received some sort of paper work letting you know why it was not service connected.  

Were you seen in service for Bipolar?

yes its possible a Dr  sent in a claim for you,,,as shrenkthetank1 mention you should have received a notice denial or award  one way or the other you should been notified. you need to request your C-File AND LOOK INIT TO SEE YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS AND WHAT DR'S HAVE SAID ABOUT YOUR CONDITION OR CONDITIONS.

@steven13081

Do you have any Mental Health related SCs? if you do the NSC would be odd unless you directly told them you were bipolar before you entered the military.

as the others have mentioned, if it was adjudicated you should have paperwork on it somewhere. if it wasn't adjudicated you might want to consider working that path. An NSC aggravated by a SC can be compensable in certain circumstances.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
