Anyone have any experience with this? I've just been approved and am considering appealing. Long story, but I don't get along with the doctor that signed off and he rated me for the lowest category he possibly could (we once had an argument about whether or not I was elgiable for SSDI after I had been drawing it for a year). Also, I'm assuming this gets turned in to my unit S1? I'm not in a WTU (another long story) and no one seems to know where I turn the form in.

Good Luck Brother, I withdrew my application because I felt that if I accepted it, it would not help me recover.... just make me more dependant.
I struggle and sometimes I question my thinking, but I'm just not ready to accept that I can't do more for myself.... making myself better or
somehow willing myself better by trying. ;)

I can understand your thoughts on this, its a personal decision; but you don't have to give up just because you accept it. I've been going to school at night since I've started the MEB/PEB process. Two more classes and I've completed my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I'll probably always need physical assistance, but I'm trying to keep going as best I can. Hard for an old grunt to get used to it though.

I agree that the decisions made in the process are personal to those making them...

Just to inject some humor into the day, when you say you are a grunt getting a degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, it triggered visions of something like this:

I know, and I too started classes through Voc Rehab while on active duty.... my cognitive losses through TBI/PTSD and severe depression prevented me from keeping up with the class work and the Voc Rehab counselor had me drop the classes before failing them. I have since taken a different holistic approach... trying to strengthen my body and mind first, then apply my strengthened energy towards a goal. The goal of becoming certifide as a veterans advocate and service officer. So far it is working, and I am becoming stronger... but I'm still frustraighted by the process and how little Dr's work together towards my recovery. No medical tests requested have been turned down by Tri Care, yet my Dr's always seem to resist in requesting more comprehensive tests to determine what is causing my conditions... just working on the easy stuff and claiming that "in time, we will figure this out". Which make me feel like they are just humoring me, and treating as though I were a meer adolecent child that is confused about his symtoms and pain. It's challenging everyday to not just starting slapping the crap out of them..... and I really like most of them..... lol. :mad:

When I enrolled at Brandman I told them hell no I don't want to be a marriage councelor; enroll me in just the counceling tract. Then the advisor explained to me that insurance companies wanted everyone to have the MFT certification; doesn't matter if you are going to do marriage counceling or not.
