  1. Well, where do I start??

    I have recently been given my RGMD back from the docs, basically saying I had depression and was dependant on coke. I had gone to the doctor about this confidentially and confidently in March last year.

    Reason for this spout was due to the fact I was travelling and ended up being 'banged up abroad' (Indonesia) for 6 long months!
    I know you lot have been through much worse and seen far more than me, but this place blew my head clean off! Anyway, I was given fluexotine and was told to see mental health board which I didn't show up to see, states it on the RGMD and that I have been treatment free for almost a year now, also was only on the tablets for two months, reason being, because I've seen the state on some people around here that are on them.

    I want to join the reserves and feel completely depression and definitely drug free!

    Is there any point in even sending the RGMD off?

    Patiently waiting for the sarcasm..

    I'd give it a go because let's be honest about it, the AR will take just about anyone as long as it looks like they've increased their manpower on an excel spreadsheet.

  4. Nope, 'cos you'll have so many flags raised against you that you'll look like a battle scene from a Kurosawa film.

  7. I suspect that the Banged-Up Abroad tag would be enough.

  8. Not on my record mate, was a massive setup and the Indonesian government was basically trying to extort money out of me.
     
  9. There is a risk of serotonin syndrome using cocaine and SSRI's.

  10. Good one ha
     
  11. Absolutely no point until you are "clear" of the depression. Iirc 4 years clear of treatment/medication or episodes.

    Still, you've given me something to laugh at.
