Hi, I've recently applied to join the army, I have been deferred for two medical reasons: whip lash from a silly car accident last year and anxiety, i have to the best of my ability written a personal letter explaining further into detail about issues raised and I've got 3 additional letters. One from my gp to explain I'm not anxious and a letter from Physio therapist explaining whip lash has been resolved, and a letter from the owner of the gym where I train. I have also sent them my gym routine and all run times distances etc. I sent all this info off yest and it's a case of waiting now. Has anyone had experience of being medically deferred, appealed and been successful? The letter I wrote took me about 3 weeks to complete as I really went to town on it hoping for a good result, I explained the issues raised are of great concern where the anxiety is regarded, and that I really am not an anxious person the appointment I had booked for the gp was nothing to do with anxiety, it was a separate issue all together, he just so happened to ask me how I was feeling and I explained I was slightly worried about the separate issue I had, he then headed the appointment with anxiety!!!. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
