I lost another damn job in January. Took 2 hours off to go the the VA because my meds ran out. They were my anti-anxiety meds and I went a week without them and was pretty wound up because of it. Got the meds but going without them for a week caused me to have chest pains and shortness of breath. I called in sick after spending a day walking around holding my chest thinking my heart was going to explode. I am turning 50 this year, I'm 30+ lbs overweight as well as on meds for high blood pressure and I have high chloresterol so I was a bit concerned. Well 2 hours after calling the boss to let him know I was going to the Dr. I got a call back from him saying "We've decided to replace you Bill". I got fired over the phone! I was Never written up for anything in the 2 years I was there!! Of course my replacement started 4 days later and happened to be an old friend of the boss. Crappy thing to do I think. Now I'm waiting on my unemployment to start. Once I see that coming in I will FINALLY be starting my VA claim. PTSD, bad knees, & hearing loss in my right ear. Hopefully I'll get something from them. Of course I might be dead by the time I get approved. :twisted:

I've been in the VA system for almost 12 years but never took the time to start a claim because of all the perceived hassle. At times it seemed like reliving the moments and trying to convince someone I have issues was worse than just ignoring things. Then the possibility of being turned down because I wasn't "screwed up" enough was insulting. Add the fact that the VA hours are the same hours I was at work & I just didn't want to be bothered. Now that the PTSD requirements are supposedly eased and my 12 years of counseling and hospitalization have been documented coupled with being out of work I am going to pursue it. I'll keep you all posted.
