Ok, so I'm sitting here still kind of pissed about the VA and their crookedness from yesterdays double cross with the suppression of vital information that could help Gulf War Vets and the phone rings, it's my long lost pen pal the VA RO in Waco, Mrs. Elizabeth calls me to get some information from me to see if I wanted to let them take my overpayment for one of my sons of about $1400 so it doesn't go back to accounting and get a letter on to make payments. She told me that I was 100% but didn't know if it was P&T. Increase in PTSD from 50% to 70%, Fibro still at 40% which is the max, IBS 30% which puts the rating at 87.4% or rounded up to 90% but we will see when the Official BBE come. She also said that it was retroed backed to August of 2010 from the 70% rating to the 100% rating. Is this something I can rely on? I don't know but as she got off the phone and said that since I have direct deposit that it should be in there by the middle to the end of next week. I'm excited about the money but more excited about the 100% IU now, like I mentioned in another thread the clock has started to tick so my wife can get DIC, this was my main concern at this point in this long 2yr and 7 month battle. I'm glad I went to the VA 6 yrs ago even though it took 17 yrs to fess up to my problems. How do I feel? Mixed emotions at this time , glad the fight is over but pissed off at the length of this claim and all the stuff we have been though as Gulf War Vets. Will be on here sharing what I know to help others get their claim.
