I know this has been mentioned before, however I wanted to add my story and ask for advice. Im applying for the Royal Anglians and am waiting for my doctor to complete the medical forms, however i have an entry on my medical record of depression and i self harm. It was dated just over a year ago. I have added a letter explaining the situation, which was a family death and relationship problems at the time. The incident of the self harm was a stupid action during an argument with my wife where i scratched myself. The wife and I went to the doctors to talk about marriage councilling and the doctor put it down to depression (for Both) and noted the incident of self-harm. I was perscribed mild anti-depresants for 3 months which i didn't take. The thing I want to know is, with my letter and the doctor (hopefully) adding to the notes would this be ok for the selection doctors. Do they take into consideration every case or will they see (depression/self-harm) and refuse without looking into it. Im hoping at worst they may defer me for a year. Any comments welcome.
