Urgent problem with my medical forms

#1
My medical forms got processed at lichfield but I got rejected for life because they are under the impression that I have serious OCD (Obessive Complusive Disorder) and they will not be able to supply me with medication in remote locations.I had a OCD tendencies when I was a kid but got over by myself I was never officially diagnosed by a doctor with OCD I am unaffected by it now and it's like I never had it. Will they reconsider as I don't have an OCD problem and have never needed nor required medication it's just a complete misunderstanding. I am really starting to worry now that i will never get in.

If you dont suffer with it not, did you need to put it down on the medical forms?
I didn't know there was medication for OCD?

If you were never officially diagnosed with it, how is it on your med forms?

I can't quite remember but I think one of the questions was do you have OCD and I put yes not thinking because I had it in the past. Please tell me this problem can be resolved. I also had to see a therapist due to depression and I told her about my problem as a kid and I she sent a letter to my GP just to update him but my words were taken out of context and I think she must have assumed that I still have a problem.

I think the med forms have a list of all med problems like have you self harded in the past, do you suffer problems with this or that, have you broken sprained anything???
You just tick yes or no.

I don't know if it can be resolved and this isn't going to help now, but you should never 'officially' confess to having anything you've not been diagnosed with by a medical professional.

I think I may end up trying for the R.A.F so would they request the medical form from lichfield or would you do another one. I have also got my GP to write a letter saying that I do not suffer with OCD and have never needed medication do you think this will help.

It would be a fresh start at the RAF I think.
The RAF will still look at medical records and if there is a letter in there from a therapist about depression they won't ignore it and if it goes into detail about OCD then the RAF may look at the situation in the same manner that the Army do.

When / if you apply for the RAF they will ask if you have ever been refused for the other Services. As your answer "should" be yes they will want to know the reason.

Edited to add: if you are rejected on medical grounds for one service I would imagine that the other services would also reject.

Thanks for the help guys like I said before my GP is sending a letter to say I don't have OCD nor do I need medication so I guess I will just hope for the best. Wish me luck.

Just thought I would update you on the situation I got another letter back rejecting me again. So I rang them up and they said I should write another letter as a 2nd level appeal and that I should appeal the entry guidelines that do not allow me to get in. What do you think my chances are of getting in, they are looking pretty bleak and I will be totally screwed if I don't get in because this is the only thing I want to do with my life.

You should appeal, I've had to appeal two seperate occasions with two unrelated medical problems (historical, nothing wrong now, and they were physical, not mental).

Keep appealing, make them realise that you no longer have OCD, and were never diagnosed with it.

TBH, I would think they would be more worried your history of Depression (as they will see it).

Well each time you appeal you usual appeal with a new piece of evidence to back your case. To be honest I would have an official letter drafted with all the details you can find, including a statement from you GP saying you where never diagnosed with it and if you feel fit even your therapist saying you are A-OK. A common sollution the army use is too deffer you for a set time, a friend of mine appealed due to a record of breathing difficulty caused by VERY bad asthma, several years of records of him being rushed to hospital etc, hes now fine and was told aslong as his record is clear for another 2 years they will let him have a shot at it.

If want any help with the letter feel free to send me a pm.

See this doesn't make sense to me that breathing problem your friends got seems alot worse than the minor problem I had but they are going to let your friend in with 2 years of a clean record and I have never had severe problems like your friend so why the hell can't I get in.
