  1. I'm interested in joining the army but i have a problem. I currently have a glandular disorder that requires me to take long term medication(probably for the rest of my life).

    Ive read the " medical requirements" which states that "Unfortunately and understandably, there are many medical conditions that are not compatible with Army service.

    So before you apply it's important that you reveal your complete medical history. Please see below for a list of some of the conditions that may make you unsuitable for Army enlistment. .........Diseases (e.g. glandular or hormonal) requiring long term medication or replacement therapy."

    So what I want too know is do I have a chance of being recruited in the army. Bearing in mind that my condition is in control and the only problem holding me back is my medication( 3 different tablets and 1 injection per day).
  2. To be blunt, not a ******* chance.
  3. Oh well...
