Hello, I was wondering if some one could shed some light on this issue. My Army application, as expected, was rejected on medical grounds. After posting and reading previous threads I wasnât too surprised. Iâve heard unofficially the stance is you need to be off anti depressants for 2 years. How ever, my letter of rejection from the Medical Wing, ADSC Pirbright states thus: âThe reason for the rejection of your application on medical grounds is due to your history of depressive symptoms lasting 6 months or more which ended in June 2005.â âUnfortunately, such a history is incompatible with enlistment as our experience has shown that individuals with such histories do not fare well when faced with the demands and stresses of service life and often go on to develop further problems which we would not wish to expose you to.â Ok, Iâm not some emo razor blade junkie, I was on the medication after a sudden fatality in my family and the subsequent loss of my business. I donât believe I was on them for 6 months, that Iâll have to check with my doctor, Iâm sure it was Feb 05- June 05. Judging from this letter, I find it hard to believe that, hearing unofficially, I can re-apply in 6 months time. This letter sounds very final to me . Can any one enlighten me please? It would be extremely appreciated.
