  2. Get help filling out any Docs they give you.

    Otherwise your 'E.M.' will probably come out 'AIDs'

    Are you certain that it was your medical that you failed? And not your knowledge of English spelling and grammar?
  4. Dyslexia should not prevent you getting in....
    However if your condition was M E Myalgic Encephalopathy/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome) then it is quite legitimate for the medical staff at selection to seek clarification of your condition.On an optimistic note,if you were allowed to complete selection(PSSR,team tasks and run) then they were reasonably confident you wouldn't go and die on them.

    The specialist will probably talk to you in the first instance,check your heart,lungs,blood pressure and then take a LARGE PAINFUL BIOPSY FROM ONE OF YOUR GONADS (only joking :D ).If you are truly recovered from this you should have no problems
  5. Fixed it for you.
    Teenager that is tired and depressed - sounds like a modern teenager to me. Now when I was a teenager I was constantly happy and full of energy, birds, beer and the invention of internet porn AWESOME!!!!

    I bet the GP gave you pills to take?
    Get a second opinion and learn to spell.
