Posted this a few days back in flight surgeon and haven't heard an answer. I realize you can't speak to the medical issues, but perhaps the legal? Veteran here with some questions based off of a thread I read earlier. I finally found a school that works with the GI bill after they closed the loop hole overspending. Now I am wondering if it's just a waste of time. I'm currently receiving 40% disability for wrist, shoulder, and minor tinnitus (only affects sleep...hearing tests are decent.) My eye sight is 20/20, i'm not color blind. My issues do cause me not to work in heavy lifting physical positions anymore, I am still physically fit to the full extent possible with said issues. I run, eat right, etc...just no crazy weight training. So my question is...if I'm collecting VA benefits...am I just wasting my time and GI bill heading in this direction? I can tell you without a doubt I don't want to end up in some federal witch hunt nightmare, so give it to me straight if you can. Almost forgot, Only meds I take are Motrin. I can sometimes go a week or so without any depending. I've learned of different ways to deal with pain online and when I was in physical therapy. It's helped a TON. I've never been a fan of the clouded pain med feeling. Tinnitus I deal with by using a fan as white noise while I sleep instead of sleep meds.
