I've been on a profile, chit, limdu, etc... for 4 years for fibromyalgia and other stuff, but was never on it consistently for 365 days due to deployments and a PCS. My package is going to the DAWG this month to see if it goes to the MEB, based on everything I've researched and been told I should be pushed to a MEB and medically retired. But it seems like a random decision could be given as well. I guess time will tell.

I was hoping to be out within a year, but I don't think that is going to happen.

4 years is a long time to be in the process, hopefully you can have enough time to initiate and complete your meb/pep. First step of course is getting started. I dont know about a year. But it could be done.

Apparently the PA who was submitting my package to the DAWG was missing information and it was submitted in September. It is now completed and will be submitted to the DAWG on 26 October. Hopefully they have everything needed to move this thing forward. Just want to know one way or the other now.

Thats what im hoping for, i called DC last week, they said itll be done this week. Said its at the Second Officer. I heard the third officer only reviews the case if necessary, do you know if thats true?

How did you guys get told where it's at? When I called, they just confirmed they received it and that it's in the process of being adjudicated. I asked where it was and then the person (a chief, I believed) repeated the same statement.

Sent off last month. I emailed my PEBLO after a week or two to see if it was received and accepted by the board...got no reply. So I waited a bit and called and was told to wait 3 to 4 months like everyone else. Wouldn't even be told if my case was accepted or not. I called the PEB in DC today and spoke to a chief, I think, to confirm if my case was accepted. He said it was accepted and in the process of being adjudicated. Not know what that really means, I asked where it was at. He repeated the same thing. Wouldn't even tell me when the case was accepted. I know it's not done, yet, but would like to know dates so I can generate a mental timeline.

From someone who suffers from GAD, this process is difficult. I'm not expecting instant results because I understand the process...just some help. Just would have liked to know WHEN my case was in DC so my command and I know. Looks like I may have to drive down to the hospital and ask my PEBLO questions in person.

Sorry to hijack your thread. Glad to see the processes working for you!

Mine was sent up on the 22nd of September and haven't heard much of anything from my PEBLO. Had to decline a job offer because of the unknown completion time. How did you message the VA to receive a response?
