Nope. You should be safe. I’m at 70% do al the PHAs the reserves asks me to do and there año questions asked. Depending on your rank you should keep both disability and drill pay and give back the difference at the end of the year. Whatever works for you though

Agree with keeping both pays. I pick up both and the VA basically takes out the difference in my drill paycheck. It’s automatic and they do all the math. But that’s the way to go.

What do you mean by “not permanent”? Can the VA drop me at some point....I’m at 60%

P2 if you're condition ever gets better with and you're evaluated again then yes it can be lowered by the VA

Sleep apnea is permanent. You're good

Really struggling to get enough protein when striving for a relatively high-protein diet. Everyone relies so heavily on protein shakes and bars but when I consume too much at once I feel bloated and nauseous. Like I can’t get through half a protein shake before feeling ill, or half a protein bar. Has anyone else struggled in the same way? Are there certain products you found that were better than others in terms of digestibility… or do I just need to eat a bunch of chicken every day? 😂

Our district does not give sick days if a teacher has Covid so if a teacher tests positive, that teacher must use his or her own sick days. If a teacher gets Covid or tests positive, 10+ sick days are gone because of district policy. Some teachers have lost 20-30 days because they tested positive 2-3 times even though they have no symptoms. Because of this, some teachers have stated they will not test and will just come to school unless their symptoms are too severe.

I would like to hear opinions on why schools would require masks at school but go any indoor school sporting event and it’s packed with kids and spectators with no masks. Even school dances hardly require them. Then schools wonder why so many are out sick. I cannot find the rational. I am for masks ( sped teacher whose kids cannot wear them correctly).

So I live in a state that offers paid family medical leave and my company makes me manage applications with the state. I am supposed to get part of my paycheck from the state and part of it from short term disability (managed by Sedgwick who are THE WORST.) I received no guidance from HR on the type of leave I needed to apply for with the state so followed the instructions I was given by the state. Apparently I was supposed to file for a different type of leave and now no one is paying me…
