Hiya All,

It has been a while since last reporting on this site. Glad to be back, although I've been ill and experienced some emotional hardships due to losing both of my parents and my eldest sibling last year.

My family and I lost my father on Feb 7, 2019 on a Thursday, and two weeks later, we lost my mother on Feb 21, 2019 on a Thursday, and lastly, we lost my oldest sister on Mar 7, 2019 on a Thursday which all succumbed to death in a month's time.

It really took a tow on me physically and emotionally due to me being the baby of the family and was my mother and father caretaker while dealing with my own health issues. Time brings on changes that we're sometimes not able to predict. But, I would like to say that I am doing so much better and I really miss you guys.

I'm still in the 90's club with pending claims that I'm hoping to get me over the hump. Well...from time to time, I'll be checking in on this forum because of such great Warriors, with such great knowledge and kindness. Hope to chat with you all soon!

Sorry to hear about your ordeal with the loss of your loved one's, as well. We will be just fine! I'll have to admit that it had been such a long road to recovery but I refuse to give up. 

Peace be with you all!

    The Veterans Crisis Line can help even if you’re not enrolled in VA benefits or health care.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to 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.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    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. This process does not take long.
    • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
