FAQ

How can I access my military medical records?
I am non-military, however, if the missing page was created while IN the Navy, then you must go to the DOD, to obtain those records.  The VA system (called VISTA) only has PHI records AFTER you got out.  It is unfortunate that these CLOSED systems are separate silo’s of information, closed meaning they aren’t sharing the records with other .systems. The good news is the DOD is changing systems (Cerner), and the VA is now looking for an “off-the-shelf” solution.

What should I do with my life?
Live itElaboration was requested. Here are my thoughts: Wake up every day. Breath. Shower. Make your bed. Get dressed. Have a light breakfast and cup of coffee. Read whatever piques your interest for 5-30 min. Go do whatever job it is you do. Take an hour lunch, either with coworkers you like, your boss (even it he's an asshole), or on your own. If on your own, read something else that piques your interest. Do puzzles. Listen to music. Drive around. Relax and just don't do work on your break unless you have no choice or you work an irregular job. That's your time, don't give it to an employer. Finish the rest of your day doing whatever your work is. Strive to do the job as well as you can every day. You don't need to worry about mastery unless your in love with your work. If you are, great. You're very lucky.   Your job is what you do for money, not who you are. After work, go home and relax for 5-15 minutes when you get off work. Hangout with friends or family at least a few nights a week. Have a nice dinner with them as often as you can, and have a couple of drinks. If you don't have friends, you can find some. You honestly don't need many. One good friend who you enjoy and who enjoys you for nothing other than your company is invaluable. Explore your city/town with them. Go eat with them at restaurants you've never tried before as often as you can, and make sure you have at least one favorite spot where the waitstaff knows you by name. However, don't eat out every day. Learn to cook. Cook for people and they will love you. If you don't have family, your friends can be a wonderful substitute. If your single and wanting to date, find someone who will date you, but no pressure, you can get a dog too. If you have a girl/boyfriend, spend time with them, but make sure you have at least 3 nights a week for yourself. Realize that the best relationships come about when you don't make the other person responsible for your happiness and they don't make you responsible for theirs. People are frail and full of faults, so it's best to realize that you are the most important person in your life and are entirely responsible for yourself. If you're married, I hope it's a marriage that allows you and your partner to be exactly who you are with no expectations. Enjoy time with your significant other. If you have kids, play with them, help with homework, read with them, hug them. They should be your passion project. If you don't have kids, get a dog, a cat, a fish tank, or a turtle. Practice a hobby. Listen to music, new and old. Hone professional skills as often as there is time. Read a book. Watch your favorite tv show. Go to art galleries and museums. When the weather is nice, sit somewhere outside by yourself for 5 min to 1 hour every day. Look up at the sky at night. Once a week, go over your finances and budget. Also run errands once or twice a week, or more if you need to. Don't buy too much crap you don't need. Don't use credit cards too often and make sure you never carry a balance more than 20% of your credit limit. Pay your bills on time, but put money aside for you that you don't touch. Plan a trip to the most exotic place you can afford to go 6 months from now. Aside from travel expenses, you'll be surprised to find how easy it is to find awesome cheap food and great people almost everywhere. Hostels are cheap and exciting if you can't afford a hotel. Go alone or with someone you get along with exceedingly well. Find a creative endeavor and pursue it for you and you alone. 10 min to 10 hours a day. Doesn't matter, but try to master what you love. If you don't know what that is, keep playing until you find something. Could be writing Quora posts, poetry, essays, or novels. Or it could be photography, drawing, sculpting, painting, building furniture, chess, collecting grass specimens, composing music or collecting records. Could be calculus, or cartography. Could be anything. You're free pursue as many creative outlets as you like. It's ok if you never land on a single one.Don't try to predict your future. Try not to put more emphasis on the western ideal of success than is required to secure an income that suits your lifestyle. You'll know what lifestyle you enjoy when you find yourself content just being alone wherever you are. This feeling seems to come and go though. I'm about to turn 30, and at least it has for me. That's generally how I know when it's time to do something else and what I think will drive the next two to three decades, until I become wise.
How do I fill out the DL number if I lost my licence and don't know what it is?
Contact your local DMV to have a new one sent to you ASAP. It is illegal to drive without one. When you go to your state’s drivers’ license division website to have a duplicate made, it’s possible they may give you something to print out with your DL number.
What are your experiences being unable to work due to mental illness? How much do you collect in disability (if you do)?
My experiences are varied and unusual. I have been a butcher, baker and candle stick maker.Really.I have been a bee keeper. I have been a manufacturing machine operator and manufacturing supervisor. I have been a printing press operator. I have been a caterer, a farmer and a farm to table cook and host. I have been a florist's support staff. I have worked in construction, landscaping and I've painted homes. I have been a cook and a custodian. I have been a caregiver. I have been a handy man. I have been a house husband. The list goes on…I could not stay longer than 4 years at any of my jobs. My depression and anxiety always brought me to a point where I just couldn't go to work anymore. I would wake up and just… not… be … able … to … go.“What was the point anyway? Clearly I am a worthless piece of shit and not worthy of anyone's investment and training and clearly no one can rely on me.”Clearly.The most important work I have ever done was my most recent real job. I was a caregiver for a home health aide company. My sole client, we'll call him Bob, is a middle aged man who had suffered a major stroke when he was only 22. It left him in a wheel chair with a useless left arm, nearly useless left leg, impaired speech and totally reliant on his caregivers. Bob is a very large fellow. 6′4 and 250 pounds.Before I came along, Bob rarely left the bedroom he had grown up in, in the slum. His caregivers would come in the morning, give him a bed bath, struggle to get him in his chair, and then sit next to him in front of the TV until bed time. This was no way to live.I had no training in regards to Bob's particular needs. I just had to figure it out as we went along. I had to listen to him. Astonishingly, he counts me as one of few caregivers that actually did listen to him. You see, he is very hard to understand. The stroke affected him terribly. I listened hard.Towards the end of the second day we worked together, I asked him why he never went anywhere. He said it was too much trouble. He didn't want to hurt anyone. He is very conscientious of his size and the safety of others, you see. Bob has a heart of gold. I listened harder.“Too much trouble? Are you fucking kidding me? So you intend to just sit here for the rest of your life? That's likely to be a good long time, Bob. I'll not have it. Tomorrow, we are going somewhere!”“I haven't had a shower”, he says.“Well, who helps you shower and when?”“A nurse helps me shower. On Sundays.”“You … only … get … one … shower … a … week? Oh my God! No wonder it smells like beef in here. Gross! Dude, things are about to change…”And change they did. Bob and I worked together for four years. We became like brothers. And we never sat in front of his TV in his room unless he wanted to. He rarely did. He showered every morning, we'd get him into my truck, and we'd take off. The mall, flea market, Walmart, open spaces, fishing, Golden Corral buffets, Hastings… you name it. It didn't matter where we went. Just out. Somewhere. Anywhere not in front of his TV.We laughed. Every single day. Gut busting, side slapping guffaws of hilarity. Every single day. Along the way, I fell in love with my friend, and I made a commitment to myself that I would always be there to help him, protect him and laugh with him.Alas, one morning, I awoke and just… couldn't …go … to … work. I quit.The guilt from my decision grabbed the reigns of my depression and threw them away. I fell hard and fast. Ultimately, it cost me my girlfriend of four years, my home and, well, pretty much everything.I left my friend behind to the mercy of the woefully incompetent caregiving agency that “supported” him and I carved bloody holes in my soul every day for a year because of what I'd done.Of course, Bob doesn't see it that way.It's been 18 months since I left. Ownership of the home health care company changed hands, and the new owners are trying hard to fulfill their obligations to their clients. Bob doesn't sit in front of the TV now unless he wants to. Thank goodness. And me?I spent four years trying to help my friend learn to walk again. Funny thing is, all along, he was teaching me how to walk. I get it now. My depression is in remission, and I'm ready to look for work again. Ready to try again. Ready to laugh again. Bob taught me that I'm worth his time, his love and his forgiveness. He taught me that I can make a difference, that I don't have to be perfect and I can have a good, fun life, even if my depression puts me into an emotional wheelchair now and again. He taught me that I don't have to sit in front of that TV unless I want to. I just gotta ask for a little help.I can't bring myself to apply for disability. It feels like a lie. Besides, maybe I won't need it for the next four years anyway. How do I reconcile that? Don't know. Musician and writer are the next things I'm adding to my list of skills. And who knows what else, in the meantime, as I get back on my feet.
How often do medical records get lost?
Not very often when you consider how many people are on record. Now that we have electronic medical records the rate is even better. Paper records seven or eight years old are destroyed or put in storage. It isv of no comfort if yours is the one lost, for you it is 100%. Usually when records are “lost" they are misfiled because of a misspelled name.
How can you find lost medical records?
That would depend on who lost them. If it's a doctor's office or hospital, it could be that they were archived since it's not possible to keep all records immediately available. There is a recommended length of time to keep records (check with your state medical society for the regulations around this). If you lost them, check with your doctor or hospital for copies. You will have to pay for the copies.
