    SSDI Continuing Review

    Psychiatry is BARELY a science on a good day. That is a fact. Psychology is also hardly a STEM degree. Therapy is time and again proven to be as much help for some vets as pica is for bulimics. Many brain injuries are lumped in or even misdiagnosed (by a shrink) with PTSD and no amount of...

    VA caregiver program

    I was told the program is "temporary to get the veteran the best version of themselves" today on the phone with the VA caregiver support line. She made it sound like it was just a little help to get over a hump. Is that what people are experiencing out there in the real world?

    I in fact had no issues with the block checking, and I am still being sent to do a physical (which is probably normal from what I have read). Thanks for the information.

    SSDI Reevaluation

    Thanks James, I did not do my due diligence and educate myself on the process. I certainly would use that as a cautionary tale for anyone else with SSDI. I am playing catch up now which is never a good place to be.

    SSDI Reevaluation

    Babs, Sent you a PM on how this turned out for you. I had to do the long and short form, and now it appears as if I have to have a complete workup done because of "Lack of medical evidence". I thought they had all the evidence they needed when I was awarded the SSDI.

    Interesting case

    One for the history books. My father was medically discharged in 1974 from the USMC. His DD214 has a 20 percent rating, of which he still has a copy of. The VA in 1978 said they did not agree with the findings of the PEB and did not honor the rating. (I have no idea how or why, but they...
