So I don't want to start an argument or minimize ANYONE'S suffering. I have a friend whose husband directs a very large veteran non profit. I said to her I have something that is the #1 reason veterans go on disability. She knew instantly. Tinnitus. She said that upon getting out of the military veterans are often instructed by co veterans to open a T case no matter if they have it or not because they WILL get it eventually (which I actually thought was odd. I know she really believed that in the most sincere way but is that true?) She did not say this however but T is not something you can test for so there is a good possibility that it is utilized so often because of that as well. There have been many stories about how veterans have misused disability and again this is not to diminish anyone's real suffering. I am saying this because it is often something we hear and it instills fear in us.
