  1. hi guys, i am stressing big time. i have recently applied for the army and have got as far as the medical part. now i am worried as my doctor has ticked a different box to myself on one of the quesions. should i be worried??? basicaly he is saying i had mental health problems, but the psychologist i went to see said there was nothing wrong with me! there are notes to this effect but am worried about the different answers to the same question. i don't want to be seen as having lied. can anyone help??

  2. Why would he be saying you have mental health problems if you havent before?! What did you say to him !
     
  3. well about 4 years ago i lost a job that paid 430 a week, a 3 bedroom house and my girlfriend of 4 years and my brother(they didn't die). so was feeling kinda low, my friends and family around me were fed up of my moping and rightly so i might add. and told me to sort my head out. thinking i was depressed i told the doc and he sent me 2 a specialist. but the specialist said it was quite natural and i should just continue to live normaly and basicaly cheer up lol. i have now and life is better but this thing on my record is scaring me. i sent off for my notes to make sure that i was all clear before i filled the form in. and it said no treatment rquired and i just had low self esteem. so i ticked no mental health problems. but my doc ticked that i had. i mean if your dog died you would be gutted, it's the same thing realy. just natural upset over losing important things. what do you think?
