  • 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.

If you have a doctor that says his Diabetes Mellitus Type II is secondary to his service connected disabilities you have a good chance. If you don't have a doctor to say it, how do you plan to connect it?

The best I remember every time I had a condition that a private doctor opined on I still had a C&P exam by the VA. Having an IMO has always been good for me. Keep calm and keep up the fight.

The VA says weight gain is not a disability even if your disability lessens the ability for you to be active.  Believe me, if they did I would be first in line.  You can try but do not be surprised if they deny.
