Hi was told this was the best place to post. I have two questions really. 1st, I recieved a letter from the SMO at Pirbright, my application for regulars has been defferred until 2009 on the grounds that he is concerned about 'my fairly recent episode of low mood and emotional instability that accompanies such a low mood' I had an episode of depression in June 07, I was and still am my grandfathers carer, he was saying to me that he would like / prefer to take his life than live in constant pain. So I saw my Gp saying that I felt depressed and was having thoughts about death, this was because I was worried that I would turn up one day and find him dead. So I reffered to a mental health nurse, he said I was not depressed, I was never prescribed any medication / anti depressants by Gp. I am trying to get a statement from the mental health nurse that states that the thoughts of death were in relation to me being concerned and worried about my grandfather. If I get this infomation would that help me in regard to appealing the decision of my defferral? 2nd, Would someone with pectus carinatum (pigeon chest) be barred from entry into the Army? Thanks for any help.
