Well the VA has surprised me with sheer excellence once again haha
I found out today while meeting the new doctor I requested, because my old one wasn't all that helpful, that my old doc diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. The fun part is I found out today, and this diagnosis is dated back to June of last year. My old doc diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and didn't even bother telling me at all in the last ten months . . . haha. I've been in and out of the VA for over two years with no call back about my claims and no diagnosis (or so I thought) until today, kind of.
After so many years in the Corps you learn to just laugh nice and hearty and move when you've been shafted haha
If any other vets would care to share stories of how wonderful the VA has been to you, go ahead. I would just advise ahead of time that you not share any info that could screw you over or get you in trouble or anything.
I would also add that some of the people who work at the VA are absolutely amazing. My case manager cares so much and does the best she can to help me out, and the guy who took my blood today was hilarious and gave me a few tips on how the place works and thanked me for my service about ten time (he's a vietnam vet I think). So, I don't want to seem like a downer, but if anyone is disabled after your service you know as well as I that the back times and horror stories are endless ha.
