I have worked at the VA hospital for 7 years. I have told my doctor, each and every time I go see her, that I don't feel like I can keep working at the hospital due to my constant fatique and irritability. I have told her I want to quit, that I miss time from work due to my problems. I am currently rated at 50% for Dysthymic Disorder and 40% for a bad back. My doctor says I also have PTSD, but my claim for that was denied when I didn't provide VA with proof of a stressor. I am also rated 0% for a bunch of other problems. I saw a VSO last year and told him I wanted to quit work because I just can't do it anymore. No energy, constant fatigue, a back that just about kills me, etc. I get about 2 or 3 hours sleep a night and my back bothers me if I sit to long, if I stand too long. My doctors said she does not think I should be arround returning Iraqi veterans because I stay so mad about the war. My nerves are shot to hell. The VSO told me that to file a claim for unemployability if I had to quit my job for medical reasons. With the VA getting as sticky as they are about veteran's disabilities, would I be wasting my time attempting to go for unemployability? I don't know how much longer I can keep on making it to work, when i feel as bad as I do, but I know I have to pay the mortage. Appreciate any help anyone can give me.
