I just received a phone call from QTC and i do in fact have an exam however it IS NOT for PTSD it's for my already SC condition for a seizure disorder and it's next week.

I specifically asked the woman i spoke with and she conformed that it is indeed for this condition.I think( although i could be wrong) i may not need an exam for PTSD( either i have plenty of evidience and / or enough to substantiate the claim PTSD) afterall think about it if i needed one why not schedule both at the same time on different days.Who knows i am just an average joe.

My exam is april 17th @ 10AM.

I thought i'd inform the board the status of my case.

What do you think about a statement from myself descriibing my struggle with my "seizure disorder"...and my fiancee who has actually witnessed on several occassions to wirte a letter.I finished mine a few days ago and "L" finished hers yesterday. Let me know , if any , what you think. Thank you and take care. Coop

PS: obviously anyone on here who was either in the military or is familiar with the process i would hope reply to this afterall i am all new to this stuff.

I think the letters are a great Idea coop and I would keep copies for later in case they are "lost" in someone's desk. Always keep copies of everyting. Good luck guy.

I am not so sure. I have both. Severe PTSD and Partial complex seizures (PCS) on top of that. My PCS is caused by multiple head traumas/and suffocation in relation to the sexual abuse. I never
really suspected that brain traumas could cause symptoms that was similar to PTSD symptoms. Freezing, numbing, loosing the thread and orientation. Altered perception, people and things moving around, altered perception and intense panick attacks, because of short seizures from 2-8 seconds, mostly in the shape of absences. I could not tell What was PTSD and what was PCD. But brain scans and EEG could!! Medications (Lamictal and Clonazepam) and disability has improved my quality of life. I work part time with what I really want now.

So I think it necessary to be checked up to see if you have seizures and /or PTSD. Did you have any head traumas due to pressure waves from explosives?

I live in my own little world - but that is OK! - They know me here.
