  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

[HELP] proposal to reduce + denied tdiu

Question

Posted (edited)

I do not know what more I can do. I was denied tdiu and now they want to reduce my percentage.

I am flagged by the VA as high risk, I take multiple medications (antidepressant, antipsychotic, anti-anxiety)recently my LCSW said that I could not work the  way I am now.

Do I ask her and my psychiatrist to write a letter stating this?

They do not mention my ability to work in my online health records, so I believe that may be screwing me over.

Do I ask for a hearing, or do I wait for the reexamination?

Getting them to write letters on your behalf is a great idea.  Can you post why they want to reduce?

From the sounds of it you do not have enough evidence or they are overlooking information you gave them?  We need some more information plz.

sorry just opened your link.  

So did you only put in for TDUI?

I assume this reopened your claim?  If so then they are doing this to see if they can swindle you out of the range.  

So you need your IMO's from your doctors.  You need to reply back that you disagree.  Also you have to show them you are out of work for TDUI.  

It also looks like they are sending another letter for the reduction.  When they do if we could see that.

  1. Yes. Tdiu because of SC depression
  2. The only people I see is the psychiatrist and LCSW. They are both working at the VA. I'm afraid that they would not do an IMO, or write a statement because they work for the VA. I can not afford a private doctor.  
  3. The last 2 images are from the second letter. I left out the generic stuff. 

I would like to point out that my LCSW diagnosed me with PTSD and said that i'm suffering from symptoms. She was confused as to why they have not added PTSD to my medical records.

So a couple of things you can do here to combat this.  Open a Claim for PTSD!  As of right now they are not considering this in your claim.  This is something I am guilty of is not putting in for new claims I should put in for when they come about.  As for right now my IBS is causing GERD, so I need to claim this now.  Also my Fibro is causing rheumatoid arthritis.  

And yes you can ask them to write an opinion.  I have only been turned down once of the 8 times I have asked.  

Is your depression getting better?  If not then you need to talk to your doctors about this as they have said it looks to be.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
