    PTSD :

    Everyone is claiming it now. A girl I went to school withs kid was diagnosed with it because he saw his neighbors arguing. The fakes and frauds out there are clogging the system for people that really need it and according to these articles, it doesn't take much to fake it, and even if you do, you still get paid. I met a young guy at a surplus store several years ago (2004 I think) that had his leg mangled in Afghanistan, and he had only gotten 40% disability.


    http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-p...804-story.html


    "Assessing PTSD becomes even more difficult in a VA system that gives veterans a financial incentive to appear as sick as possible, former and current VA mental health clinicians said. The number of veterans on the disability rolls for the disorder has climbed from 133,745 to more than 656,000 over the last 13 years."






    "To get paid for PTSD, veterans must link their symptoms to trauma that occurred during their service. In 2010, the VA expanded what situations could qualify. Credible fear of being attacked — without actually suffering or witnessing violence — became sufficient."



    "In one case that Moering reviewed in 2009, he searched military records and concluded that a Navy veteran on the disability rolls for PTSD had lied to VA clinicians about having served in the elite SEALs and concocted his combat history.

    The VA responded by reducing his PTSD rating from 50% to 30%, records show."

    "I know I’m going to catch hell from my brothers and sisters in the veteran community on this one, but it needs to be said: I’m becoming skeptical of some PTSD claims, and you should be too."

          I agree wholeheartedly. The problem is that the people that need the treatment have to get in line behind all the frauds that are just trying to get a check.

                That's what the articles above are saying. One doctor is quoted as saying that up to 50% is fraudulent.

                  There are a lot of doctors that think owning a firearm makes you mentally ill. I wouldn't get too excited that someone said something unless there was a legitimate study and some real homework done.


                  PTSD is not a scam, though some scammers obviously do jump in and claim it. But there are a shit-ton of deserving people who not only don't claim it, but don't even realize that they are being affected by it.

                  Talon, did you know the studies that HAVE been done say that fire fighters and LEO go through it too?

                  I know more about this topic than I want to get in to here.

                  But I will say this....... Anyone that will sit on the sidelines and claim that most of it isn't real have never put themselves out there, and have never had a buddy die on their watch. If they did, they would be haunted, and it would have a name. PTSD.

                        I showed an article that stated that there was much fraud, and I said that that is bad for the people that really needed it. I know there is PTSD, that's not the point of any of this. The point is that the system is over burdened by the fakers according to the article. I would think/hope that you would want the fraudsters out of the way of the people that truly need the help too.

                          My point was that the article didn't quote studies, but a few opinions. I agree there is likely fraud, and should be tightly policed, as you said to protect those who deserve it. But I disagree with the connotation that the fraud is widespread without documentation......

                            It's certainly not easy to get disability. The requirements are rigorous
