    employment 2.jpeg

    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 just did a quick search of your service connected issues you listed and came up with this.

Gonna need a bit more information to help you fight this.

First off are you within 1 year of separation?  Do you have any other dyabilities?  Is diabetes in your C file?  I am not sure how they test for it, but I am almost sure during a blood test there would have been some evidence of this, and if they did not report it to you then that is a whole different issues.  

To answer your question it does look like there is a link between the diseases.  

My brother in-law has this problem and that really sucks!  Keep on those meds they will save your life!

What you would really need is an IMO from a doctor that links your disability to your diabetes, then you would claim secondary connection.  You should not have to spend your hard earned dollars for a civilian doctor to link your conditions but it is a necessity sometimes.  I got neuropathy linked to a severe heat injury but I needed an IMO.  Sometimes it is a long shot but it can be done.  They have to say that they read all of your medical records so have them available.  They also have to say that your condition is likely as not related to your disability and provide a rational for this link.

following up on this- not related to OP question- 

but if/when you pay out of pocket for IMO, is there any way to get reimbursed by the VA for cost when you are SC? just was a side note.

thanks guys

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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.
