So in service I had an event that I mentally blocked out but was recorded, was seeing the base mental health and was under the care of a military psych and a therapist. my work performance deteriorated, I couldn’t meet my PT times even though I was healthy and fit.
but during the end of my service and my honorable discharge for “failure to meet standards” I was in mental health, I reported sexual harassment and assault, was put on 2 different antidepressants and prescribed benzos for anxiety. So I get discharged and I get nothing, I had to leave all my stuff at the base. So I file for social security and they find that I was disabled and unable to work the same month I got discharged? SO bam SSDI….I applied at the va and they rated me 70% for mental later that year….then I went to VocRehab people told me due to my SSDI and my condition(s) It wouldn’t be possible to go about finding a job or even start school…so I apply for TDIU and it gets denied….then I email alison hickney for help and I get approved for 70% IU P&T for mental and backdated to discharge date.
like, is this normal?
also I didn’t become “bipolar” until I was put on antidepressants, then to combat the bipolar VA put on anti-psychotics…but the original problem was anxiety….which I’m sure it is PTSD related to MST. Like these diagnosis and pills have been destroying my mind. My VA psych prescribes meds that interact with my migraine medications…like I just don’t trust the VA
I see my fight for SMC as I have all the evidence, but the white house hotline doesn’t care, Alison Hickney is gone. I feel so alone. Like the stress..
I’m 100% for mental. I’m pending for migraines from 30% to 50% and I have a handful of 10% rated stuff.
