Hi I am hoping for some help here as I’m finding a lot of mixed comments on the topic, last year almost a year ago I was diagnosed with depression and given anti depressants which I took for a couple of months and felt they made me feel strange, tbh I don’t think I was actually depressed just went through a rough point in my life.

Basically by the time a go for my medical I will have been off the tablets for over a year and I’m not depressed now and would not have been for the same amount of time I never had any suicidle thoughts and have never self harmed myself either I’m just wondering if this will stop me from being able to join up?

I’ve filled in my OMQ and sent I away just waiting to here back now.

Not so much a joining up comment but a reminder that depression is a silent killer. I’ve been on anti-depresents for over a year, work related, and it’s easy to seem outwardly ‘normal’.
