I'm applying sometime in the future and I'm worried how I'm going to come across.
I applied once before, but because of a history of eczema I got the three year deferral. Found out some months after that I've had SAD since I was younger. It's not bad - I still go about my business and go to work and such, I just have moments where I feel uncomfortable around people. There's people with this illness that wont go out of their houses out of pure fear, so from my point of view, my symptoms are just a niggle that aren't going to interfere with my (hopfully future) of a soldier.

But it's the recruiters/doctors views I'm worried about.

Anyone else in the forces with this disorder?

Go into an AFCO if you still want to join after seriously considering the following:

"What will I do when I have to be surrounded by people whether I like it or not."
