  1. Hi,

    When i was 10 years old i was diagnosed as having asperger's syndrome. While i had quite a lot of problems from it at a younger age, I'd say that i'm a completely different person now, many of my symptoms have reduced significantly and I no longer have any problems of any kind. I am now a month shy of my 17th birthday and had reached part-way through the application process (done the BARB, english and numeracy tests and got very good scores on all of them, sent off my medical forms) only to receive a letter telling me that i have been medically rejected, the letter stated that because soldiers have limited access medical care and attention while on operations. Now, i've never needed any kind of medication or medical support, and i'm convinced that i would have absolutely no problem with anything i could go through in the army. The letter stated that i have the right to appeal, and i suppose my question really is what do i need to do to appeal and what information do i need to find? At a guess, i suppose i'd have to get assessed by some sort of specialist (I'm convinced that if I did this i'd be confidently told there are no problems), would this be enough evidence to successfully appeal? Hopefully there are other members on this board who have been through the same process for similar problems and would be able to offer advice, cheers.

    That's just a nice way of saying we don't want a ******* mental anyway near anything more dangerous than plastic cutlery.

    Try the search function. This topic has been discussed ad nausium. On the assumption that this is a real question, I would suggest that you have a look at previous threads on the subject and delete your original post as I suspect that your query may draw a lot of abuse.

    Mate blame your parents its their fault they got you the ******* label when you were ten because it would get you extra help at school, well now its come round to bite you in the arse. Too many people in the last decade or so have been labelled aspergers or dyspraxic or dyslexic or some other ******* thing because their "Right on" parents forced the issue and got their kid statemented. Now my spelling is fairly shite and I struggle to read tabulated information and forget things. apparently im dyslexic! My ******* arse, I'm ******* idle and don't pay enough attention to details sometimes. And sometimes when people talk to me I'm not actually ******* listening because they are boring the tits off me, which is why you'll hear me quite often say "pardon could you repeat that"

    So to the OP. sorry mate yer fucked.

    To my fellow arsers if we every converse and I say pardon its not because I'm deaf its because your a boring **** and I'm not listening, Ta.

  8. I can't see why the army has problems with aspergers. I love it lightly blanched with a butter sauce. Perhaps you overcooked yours.
