2/15/2011 results are in 50% permanent for Bipolar disorder

Its been a long long process and very stressful. I am thrilled with the outcome since I was only looking to get 30% or even less like 10%, since that seems the norm for bipolar.

Thanks to everyone on this forum and thanks to Jason for creating it. This has been the place I have turned to for many many answers.

Finally I can get on with my life!

O I won't forget to take care of myself. I am happy with the outcome but it does suck that I have a medical problem that I will have to live with forever. I have a great wife who is there to keep me in check and make sure I take my meds and see the doc when I'm getting out of hand.

Good luck in the future and don't forget to apply for your VA benefits and compensation for any service connected conditions beyond those rated by DOD.
