To conserve resources for the severely ill, the government is urging residents not to seek help unless necessary. But the pivot has left many confused and anxious.
I guess I just want to vent a bit, I am usually too angry at this point in my Friday drinking but I am kinda mellow right now so yeah, I am proud of having served my country, even though I was not born here I love this country like no other on earth. I joined the Corps (believe it or not) because I wanted to serve it, plus I always though the dress blues were cool! i joined the infantry because I was young and felt like a f****bad ass (and yes I had a 70+ asbav so it was decent) I was deployed to Iraq, fought there, things happened, it truly doesnt bother me their casualties, the ones trying to mess us up, our own casualties just broke my heart but hey thats what we signed for right? but what I cant fucking shake off, and it eats me day in and out, its the civilians that were bystanders and got smoked, theres a couple of images that replay in my head, guilt is unbearable sometimes, drinking helps me somewhat, or at least it soothes me or whatever the hell alcohol helps with, I am going tru therapy at the VA but will see…anyone here has something that can relate to this? and please dont come to me with that shit that "better them than us" I dont wanna hear that, we had NO business being there except that cocksucker Bush used us as his own personal hitmen to finish his family vendetta against the Husseins…..rant over.
Just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone with a service-connected disability. To let your kids use California state colleges fee waiver they just need to be a California resident ( which I think is 2 years living there) you do not need to live in California for them to get it.
Some Democrats had hoped to act on the issue before their party loses unified control of Congress, but a lack of political will and time appears to have sapped momentum for doing so.
I separated from active duty in July 2016 and made some mistakes financially, stopped paying it (not sure when). After finally getting my life together, I ended up paying the balance this past March but upon looking at my Experian credit report, it's not showing any data (balance history or anything) prior to March 2022, so there's no date of first delinquency. I'm afraid that this might show March 2022 as the date of first delinquency by default.
For Transunion, it shows that the last time I was rated "OK" was for the month of June 2015 (I think this is when I stopped paying it) and was reported in collection for the first time in Sep 2016. It shows no payment/balance history data until June 2020 where my balance started increasing every month yet paid nothing.
Is this something I can dispute / how would I go about doing so?
About a year ago, a claim was added to my VA disabilities that was title “unspecified depressive disorder” as secondary to a lumbar strain.
Since then I have worked on improving my overall health, found other ways to be active, regular chiropractic adjustments, and a lot of my back issues are milder to the point where they don’t effect me mentally like they used to. I was never on any meds or never had to receive psychiatric help or hospitalized. What can I do to be re-eval’d and potentially have this claim removed?
Is there a way to request an evaluation be done?
I’m thinking about filing for an increase, but I can’t find my VA mental health records anywhere. I used to be able to access them through the blue button report. I’ve looked all over myhealthvet.gov but no luck. Does anybody else have this issue ? Or does anybody know how I can access those files ?
