I have a history of anxiety but I don't know what's exactly on my medical records, I'm pretty sure depression isn't on there and I was on beta blockers for panic attacks but came off them a while ago, would I stand a chance of joining? On the website it doesn't say anything anxiety or depression but I know it might come up, or is there a certain amount of time you have to be symptom free before joining? I really want to join. I'm 18 btw and won't be joining straight away, maybe decide next year.

Find out what's on your records, first. Don't go into this without the facts.

I applied for the navy 2 years ago, I told them I had depression in the past and was on tablets for it and they asked how long ago, at the time it was 18 months and they said fine.

What I would say is ring the recruitment office and ask them the question. Don't give your name and then you can decide if you need to speak to your doctor to see what is listed on your records.

Oh okay, what job did you apply for though? I was going to ring at some point and maybe get an interview just see what my options are, well not interview but just go in and speak to someone.

Well they won't say no straight away because they don't know what else is on my records and they won't understand the situation, also it's just in general what my options are for joining if I do

I'm not talking in riddles.

You're the one who says that you don't know what's on your records; so go and find out what's on your records, that way you'll know what rules apply when you go talk to them at the careers' office.

That wasn't rude.

If you think it was, you'll hate basic training...

You might not hate it but it won’t always be enjoyable.

Drewski is absolutely right though; speak to your Doctor and take it from there.

No ones doubting that, however plan ahead and if you’re not applying until next year - there’s no harm in speaking to your Doctor and finding out all the answers to your questions now - which could save time next year.
