Don't ever hurt yourself. You've already been through so much. Ask for help.

My post TDRL story:

So, here is the severance pay timeline (2017):

August 3rd: Accepted PEB Decision and elected to receive disability severance pay (DSP).
September 21st: DFAS received severance pay packaged from HQ USMC
September 27th: DSP moves into Audit phase
September 30th: I am honorably discharge from the USMC
November 15th: DSP moves into Review phase
December 21st: Funds allocated for payment
January 2nd: Payment to be made

Regardless of anything else, I was paid as an E4 for 13.45 years of service for the 2015 base pay. My time as a Sergeant accounted for nothing, DSP is NOT calculated via High-3 or Highest Grade Served.
