    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

Buck, you sir are also greatly appreciated. When I found this site like others, "I was mad as hell and I couldn't take it anymore." I remember the quote but I don't remember who said it. This site is somewhat therapy for me. Plus I can glean a little about my own claim.  Never could I imagine that so many veterans would be going through some of the same situations. Even some are so dang close to my claim I can swear that someone is looking at my claim and posting or responding to my post and it is scary.  Maybe it is my paranoia but they are real close.  Dealing with some of the Sugar Honey Ice Tea I had to go through, I don't want any other veteran/person to go through it.  I went way below rock bottom and I am still trying to crawl my way out/up.  The disability is just one factor but when you add losing your family and your home it makes thing even harder. I know there are some horror stories out there about what some veterans had to go through while VA decided their claim/fate that you would really not believe and really not want to hear because of the true gut punch feelings that would just make you sick.

From my family and I,

Thank you all!

Thanks to this forum, and the fountain of knowledge in the community,

I started off on my journey hurt, confused, and angry -

I was separated from service, with unclaimed/poorly evaluated injuries.

Then, I wasn't familiar with the process, what I could claim, what the injuries I had were called, or who to see to get the appropriate treatment. I still learn new things every day!

To say that in my experience, I was chewed on and spat out, is an understatement. From poor notes in my original exam by a doctor who seemed to care less, and the same from an off base neurologist. I got passed along from place to place. The doctors knew they were getting paid, seemingly regardless of the quality of their work.

Recently, the picture has become much clearer, and more of my fellow veterans came by my side, some that I served with, who shared their testimonies, and helped me regain control over my butchered claims.

 

The circumstances nearly put my family through homelessness.

The circumstances nearly killed my wife (Type 1 Diabetic...Can't live without insulin, which means you HAVE to be able to afford insurance - because paying completely out of pocket would be financial suicide, thus begins the vicious cycle of "do I eat, or do I pay for insulin?")

To quote Google "A person with type 1 diabetes incurred annual insulin costs of $5,705, on average, in 2016. The average cost was roughly half that at $2,864 per patient in 2012, according to a report due to be released on Tuesday by the nonprofit Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI)."

This doesn't reflect costs of specialist co-pays, endocrinology, and a host of other devices, tubes, lancets, Bgs strip tests.....JUST THE INSULIN COST.

Also, the circumstances nearly killed me - My glimmer of hope was fading fast.

Unfortunately, while witnessing our struggles, my father succumbed to illness.

Hadit elders and family ensured that I did not derail on my path through the claims process.

The ship is nearly on course now, and we're out of the choppy water.

Now, it's time toss other Veterans the lifesaver and help them find their way along with us!

I am forever grateful, and humbly look forward to helping others in need to the best of my ability here on Hadit.

I've got your 6.

couldn't have said it better @Buck52 the people are what makes hadit.com special. When I started hadit.com all those years ago, my hope was that veterans would jump in to help each other and it has exceeded my wildest dreams.

    • 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.
