As many people may be aware the army are making massive cut backs to impress the public that they are giving the forces more money when infact there not. Due to this alot of soldiers are been giving the boot for there medical disabilitys. I am aware alot of these are deserving due to idleness but there are some of us who are genuinly biffed. I was fully fit up until 6 months ago serving with brigade operations company but was diagnosed with an illness called ulcerative colitus. Due to this i was P7(home only downgraded). This disease is incurable which will obviously make me biffed for life. I have now been informed i am to start the process for medical discharge and if i do not get this then i will be admin discharged on medical grounds. If im honest am sh*ting it as i would never of expected it and have no clue what to do. I dont understand the process of a md and didnt think i could just get the boot. Trying to find help from my chain of command results in one answer and that is "prepare for civvy street". I have been warned ive got a max of a year left. I am considering legal advice but not sure if this is a good choice or even worth it. PLEASE i would really appreciate some help or some guidence as what to do as i feel like i am been shat on by a giant. Thank in advance.
