So I’ve been in for just over 3 years. 3 years and 2 months actually. And my anxiety is just out of control. I finally said something 2 weeks ago to my COC. I tried to be the super soldier and I was, but in reality I was depressed and always worried and just kept pushing instead of saying something. And here I am, I barely eat and I just don’t focus on anything. I already went to BH and I have a lot of appointments coming up? Does anyone know what’s next or what I should do?
I fell on the ship a year ago and I was put in Limdu due to back and neck pain. At the end of my limdu the orthopedist asked me if I want to go to a medical board process or a second limdu. I chose a second limdu because I wanted to stay and I am about to be a single mom, I needed stability.My second limdu will be up in a month and my condition didn’t get any better but now the ortho is telling me I am no longer eligible for a medical board and he will recommend admin sep under medical condition.my questions is will I be eligible for GI bill and Va benefit?
My diagnosis are:lumbar spondylosis, myofascial syndrome pain, radiculopathy cervical region, adjustment disorder with mixed depression and anxiety, and many more.
Can you help?
I finally got my VA disability corrected and now i need to correct my DoD Rating. I was told by my FPEB assigned counsel that I would have a very good case once my VA disability came thru. Can you help or do you know of any lawyers that I can retain? Thanks
