    Protect My License

    I still have my license and work a couple of days a month. My manager is very understanding and works with me so that I am still able to work when I feel well .

    Protect My License

    I was also boarded for MH reasons and was terrified they would report me to the Board of Nursing. I worked very hard for my license and did not want to lose it. I was given 70% PDRL from the DOD for MDD and anxiety. I did not work with patients during my board because of my diagnosis and mental...

    Borderline personality disorder

    I would not worry too much about the BPD diagnosis. I have BPD, MDD and anxiety, all diagnosed while on active duty. The VA rated me at 70% for MDD and anxiety, they did nothing with the BPD. Most people with BPD have depression and anxiety.

    Dual Process MEB

    Please try to stay positive, there is still a good chance this will turn out in your favor. When the CG sided with a chapter for me I was so upset that I overdosed. Bad idea. Not only did it not work but I realized later what it would have done to my daughter (she had just lost her father 6...

    MEB vs Officer Elimination

    Hopefully it won't take that long for you. It was 10 months of hell for me but I'm glad I stuck it out. If it wasn't for my psychologist I don't think I would have made it.

    MEB vs Officer Elimination

    Sorry to hear you're going through this, I've been though it myself and know how stressful it can be. Don't give up. It takes a long time at HRC (mine took 10 months) and I came close to just taking the chapter a few times because I couldn't take the stress. I'm glad I waited it out. I think the...

    If it went to the ARBA it can take up to a year. Mine took 10 months.

    Dual Process MEB

    I am finally starting to out process on Monday. Friday afternoon I fell and fractured my radial neck. How is the best way to add this to my VA claim. Should I try to add it now or wait until my official ratings are back?

    Dual Process MEB

    Sorry to hear things didn't go your way. Hopefully the CG will go with the MEB. Just try and keep positive (I know it's really hard). I'll keep good thoughts for you.

    Dual Process MEB

    Finally after nearly a year of waiting, my packet came back from the ARBA. They have decided to let me medically retire! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me. Katz11_11: have you heard anything yet?

    What to take to get some sleep?

    I would stop drinking before bed, alcohol causes sleep problems. When I cut back on drinking I found I slept a little better and did not wake up as many times during the night.
