PTSD For MST Claim Finally Approved



I haven't gotten the letters in the mail yet, but shows the claim complete; and the "download your letters" shows me at 40% SC now.  (I was only at 10 before).  I am glad it's finally over at least for now.  Such a stressful process that dug up so many things I didn't want to think about.  I feel they came in right where I should be.  My private doc had filled out the DBQ before we submitted for the C&P.  She specializes in Sexual Trama cases, and I really like her.  She and I both felt like 30% is where I fit in the criteria.  I'm glad the VA agreed with her assessment.  I am grateful to everyone on this site for all of the advice and guidance in the process.  Now, I will move on to get the conditions I have that are affected by stress secondary connected.

Congratulations on your win but never forget to continue your therapy.  It took me a very long time to provide the details to my PTSD(MST) and it is still hard. I have gone through and continue to go through therapy. Nobody knows how hard it is to go through a C&P for this type of claim but once you do it is so gratifying when you finally receive compensation.

    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 – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
