I am the caregiver of a current service member who is up for MEB due to knee issues but also suffers from a pretty severe case of PTSD. What factors are taken into account when determining the rating for PTSD? Although my husband is currently hanging on in his job in the military, he calls me on the phone about five or six times in a ten hour workday because something has upset him. If he gets really upset, I actually come to his shop (he is "the boss" with 17 years in) under the guise of bringing him food. His PTSD is from running convoys so driving also makes him pretty crazy. He has god awful road rage that would frighten any sane person. I end up doing the vast majority of the driving, including driving him to and from work sometimes. He also becomes very stressed out in crowds and sometimes has outbursts that I have to quell. Simple tasks such as filling out paperwork at a medical facility induce a hail of profanities if he gets frustrated. I go to all of his medical appointments with him and I usually end up having to complete the paperwork for him if the form is more than a page or two. He has been working with a therapist on a weekly basis for the past year plus taking meds but neither has been effective. His therapist almost labeled him as unfit for duty a few weeks ago. Fortunately, I am certified as a peer support specialist for PTSD so I know how to handle his outbursts. I feel more like a handler than a wife sometimes. What level of disability rating could the VA assign him based upon the above symptoms? I am terrified of them rating him at 30% or some other low rating. He literally requires at least part time care from someone who is trained to understand mental health issues. The only way that his issues would be completely "fixed" is if he never had to deal with other people ever again.
