Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the Army

#1
Have just decided, from a thread in the RAMC forum, to expand it into here. the discussion is centred around the possibility of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder preventing someone joining the Army.

now, the comedy possibilities are potentially endless:

i would love to see this guy in the army. can you imagine the fun? i don't think he should be discriminated against simply because of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder :) having seen some of the symptoms displayed by friends with it.

i'm sorely tempted to start a new thread in the NAAFI bar about this.

on the ranges. can only fire an even number of shots. must load, make ready and unload twice.

on the parade square!! doing drill with whichever foot makes him comfortable.

on exercise - must compulsively wash hands over and over, despite being in a camming up lesson.

oh this is so getting copied into the NAAFI bar :D
there must be so many possibilities out there for how OCD would "enhance" their military training.

ho hum :)

Lots of chaps in my regiment had OCD. Whenever I went for a wander round camp, some of them used to raise their right arm, bent at the elbow, with the palm of the hand facing me and the tips of the fingers in contact with the forehead. Then they would put their arms down until I had done the same. Weird or what.

Hi all this is my first post on arrse i suffer with OCD and as a regular i have found that it dosent affect any activities where there is any danger or risk where my full attention is given but on a parade or such iv learnt to make it subtle.
Thinking of myself doing things things afterwards is stupid but oh so funny in the big picture

Simple, sit the OCD bloke down with loads of scotchbrite, flannelette, oil etc and the units weapons.

Everyone else legs it to the pub, and come back to an armoury full of gleaming weapons. Besides, how good would the sinks and mirrors be???

But due to ever increasing cutbacks you will now have to make do with a combined OCD/MLAAAR.

What should this lucky individual be called?

A chronic, progressive pathological condition, mainly affecting the nervous and digestive systems, caused by the excessive and habitual consumption of alcohol. Also called chronic alcoholism.
