    What I wish I knew from day one.....

    I started this thread so people coming behind us do not make the same mistakes as we did. I have come up with my 10 big ones! 1. As soon as you start your med board, start Social Security! I don't care if you think you will get denied, or you don't need it. You have no idea what will happen...

    NG LODs, Med Board, and VA

    I cannot tell each and every one of you how important your LODs are to your future. Each and every word listed on that LOD is so very important. Don't be scared. Get an LOD if you are hurt, and spell out exactly what happened. I had an LOD from 2008 that I turned in, and I knew I would be...

    2012 Fibromyalgia / Social Security Administration / Plus other links

    I suffer from 3 diseases (RA, AS, and Fibro) and many injuries (so I am a very "complicated case" with VA and SSDI). Throughout my life, I thought I knew pain, but until I was hurt, and also developed RA, AS, and Fibromyalgia, I did not know what real pain felt like. When I was originally...

    17+ years - Faced with 20%

    I have been at a WTB since 12JAN2012 (not even a year). I was only here 30 days before my packet was approved for MED Board... not therapy, nothing. AND Now... my packet is in the IDES system and is being rushed along. My VA physical is a joke. My IPR is a joke. My appeal is a joke. I...
