    Thoroughly Confused

    Hey thanks for the reply. I just read this. I was diagnosed with CHRONIC adjustment disorder at 10% out of active duty and that is what is being compensated by the VA. From what I've been told, I should not have even been deployed if this was the case. Either way, the military psychologist noted...

    Being investigated by OSI

    Hey all, I was previously diagnosed during active duty with chronic adjustment disorder. I palace chased and got a 10% disability from the VA for that condition. Feel free to look through my post history for further details. Anyway, I was deployed April of 2016 as an activated reservist. Doctor...

    Admin Sep for adjustment disorder with depressed mood.

    That's interesting. Yea I was definitely diagnosed correctly I think. I was diagnosed initially about 3 years ago, then again with a civilian provider in a mental hospital, then again when I got deployed. Each of these diagnoses had a suicidal ideation episode attached. All this occurred over 3...

    Thought I knew how it worked

    Yea I talked to him again yesterday. He said he was rated less than 30% DoD, but VA combined was 80%. He misunderstood my question when I asked him.

    Admin Sep for adjustment disorder with depressed mood.

    Oh yea sorry about that. I do have chronic adjustment disorder as it has been diagnosed 3 or 4 times over the past 3 years with 3 distinct suicidal ideation instances. Thanks for clarifying that for me.

    Admin Sep for adjustment disorder with depressed mood.

    Hey there. I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents. I'm not sure how the Navy runs things, but in the Air Force, adjustment disorder is now a boardable condition. My active duty psychologist that is recommending me for the MEB said that it is.

    Thought I knew how it worked

    That's strange. It makes me feel better because I was starting to get nervous. I would like medical for my family and I. He did say that he received a one time 110,000 dollar payment as severance. So I know he wasn't retired medically. He must've got shafted.

    Thought I knew how it worked

    Quick question. Let's say I am DoD rated at 30% or higher to be eligible for a medical retirement. Am I able to choose whether I am retired or separated, or is it all based on recommendations by the board. I have friend who was active duty that was rated at 80% unfit DoD and they medically...

    Did my MEB start?

    It sounds like this is your updated AF469 that was established after the DAWG determined you would be coded as AAC 37. As I said above, your regular provider cannot make the determination to place you on AAC 37. Only the DAWG.

    Did my MEB start?

    Hey anonymous1, I'm in the same boat as you. I was told I'd be being processed for an MEB, but I'm shown as AAC 31 on my 469. I did a little research and I found out why. It is in AFI 41-210, which is the AFI that governs MEBs. In section 4.52.1.1 it says "(During any pre-MEB clinical evaluation...

    Traditional Reservist Timeline

    Just got diagnosed with adjustment disorder with depressed and anxious moods and borderline personality disorder. Being recommended for an MEB based on the adjustment disorder. Does anyone know how a traditional reservist MEB works and how long it takes?

    Increasing VA disability rating before MEB

    Thanks for the form. So would it be ok if I requested an increase before the MEB or should I just wait for them to do it as part of the process.

    Increasing VA disability rating before MEB

    I've been told by the base psychologist that I am more than likely looking at an MEB. I have a 10% depression disability from active duty. I deployed as a reservist this past April and returned after only 5 days in country due to major depressed mood and suicidal ideation. While I was deployed...

    Thoroughly Confused

    I'm cross-posting this from vets.yuku.com because I just found this forum and I think this may help me out more than the other. We'll see. First of all, thanks for viewing and potentially answering my question. I've browsed a few of the posts, but they are all from people over 20 years in...
