Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am applying to join the TA, however I suffered with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy when I was 10 years old, and had another episode at 12 years old, but no further occurences since (I will be 36 next week).
    Looking at the guidance notes it appears that my application will be rejected straight away. I have mentioned it to the unit I am applying to and the administration lady said it is likely to be rejected but to speak to my doctor first before they send off for the medical form (as this costs them money to do).
    I cannot get in to see my Doctor for nearly a week and it's driving me round the bend now.. Can anyone on hear offer me any advice whilst I am waiting for probably the inevitable rejection??
  2. Perhaps you could talk to your Doctor within the week. I'm sure your problem is so bad he/she should ignore the several thousands of patients they have.
  3. Can you smell colours?
