I am not sure what your question would be but here is the exam questionnaire. I think they are all the same except the exams for PTSD and a Eating Disorder.

You can always try to ask your question (s) and someone will try to answer it/them.

Do you see a shrink at the VA?

Do you know your GAF Score?

Do you have a mental health diagnosis?

This will help the examiner make his diagnosis and opinion if asked to give one

Hope This Helps

Your answer is that you had a perfect childhood and you were fine until military service. You don't drink or take illegal drugs. You did well in school and got along with everyone. Your problems with bi-polar began in service and continue to this day. What kind of meds do you take now? Bring them with you to the exam. I am not being flip. Concentrate on what happened in military and how disabled you are now. Don't go back in time before the military. Don't discuss your family, work or school before military. Don't talk about legal troubles before military if you had any.

Here is the rating schedule for service connection depression

General Rating Formula for Mental Disorders:

Total occupational and social impairment, due to such symptoms as: gross impairment in thought processes or communication; persistent delusions or hallucinations; grossly inappropriate behavior; persistent danger of hurting self or others; intermittent inability to perform activities of daily living (including maintenance of minimal personal hygiene); disorientation to time or place; memory loss for names of close relatives, own occupation, or own name

100

Occupational and social impairment, with deficiencies in most areas, such as work, school, family relations, judgment, thinking, or mood, due to such symptoms as: suicidal ideation; obsessional rituals which interfere with routine activities; speech intermittently illogical, obscure, or irrelevant; near-continuous panic or depression affecting the ability to function independently, appropriately and effectively; impaired impulse control (such as unprovoked irritability with periods of violence); spatial disorientation; neglect of personal appearance and hygiene; difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances (including work or a work-like setting); inability to establish and maintain effective relationships

70

Occupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity due to such symptoms as: flattened affect; circumstantial, circumlocutory, or stereotyped speech; panic attacks more than once a week; difficulty in understanding complex commands; impairment of short- and long-term memory (e.g., retention of only highly learned material, forgetting to complete tasks); impaired judgment; impaired abstract thinking; disturbances of motivation and mood; difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships

50

Occupational and social impairment with occasional decrease in work efficiency and intermittent periods of inability to perform occupational tasks (although generally functioning satisfactorily, with routine behavior, self-care, and conversation normal), due to such symptoms as: depressed mood, anxiety, suspiciousness, panic attacks (weekly or less often), chronic sleep impairment, mild memory loss (such as forgetting names, directions, recent events)

30

Occupational and social impairment due to mild or transient symptoms which decrease work efficiency and ability to perform occupational tasks only during periods of significant stress, or; symptoms controlled by continuous medication

10

A mental condition has been formally diagnosed, but symptoms are not severe enough either to interfere with occupational and social functioning or to require continuous medication


Also you might want to go to the ROI (Release of Information) Office at the VAMC to get a copy of your last mental health visit to see what your current GAF and your current diagnosis is written in your records.

Hope This Helps
