MIL Currently working on enlisting, how much will they look into med. history?

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by KillerRobotJews, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. I basically had to lie about having ADD on my paperwork or be instantly DQ'd. When I go to meps for the physical/medical exam will they pull up prior insurance records/medical history at all? I'm really nervous about this as enlisting is almost a necessity for me at the moment :hs:

    I told them about my ADD history and the Army didn't seem to care too much.

    ADD is a good thing in the cockpit. Check gauges, look outside, talk on the radio, get lane alignment, check gauges, clear airspace, talk on radio, high five co-pilot, check gauges, talk on radio, etc etc.

    :rofl::rofl:

    I think the ADD diagnosis was more because I didn't give a shit about any of my classes in high school or making good grades. Biggest inconvenience as far as the Army goes was waiting a week for the waiver to get approved on my first flight physical.
     
  8. I didn't even notice the humor there at first, I'm really stressed about this

    ADD is the new garbage can diagnosis. Dependent on how severe yours is, you may be able to get a pass with a Dr.s note.


    Don't stress about it.

    the reality is that nobody will go into those records unless something provokes it. ie. habitually high fiving the copilot at inappropriate times and it gets noticed

    whether or not you're comfortable with this hanging over your head during your enlistment is up to you. i highly discourage enlistment if you have any doubt in your mind concerning your ability to perform military duties.

    having already lied about it, dont give them a reason to suspect otherwise. if you feel comfortable with lying to the doc at meps (not advocating, its a personal choice you have to make), then dont say anything. otherwise go back to your recruiter and have them fix the paperwork BEFORE you go to meps.

    your good man, you were a child when it was given to you and you just thought they were flintstone vitamins. ignorance is bliss. enjoy signing your life away and have fun. always make sure your weapon is on safe and your add will come in handy.

    good to see you are getting off on the right foot with your new career :ugh:

    enjoy the lie as far as it will take you because it will catch up eventually.

    My friend is in Iraq right now and when he inlisted he droped dirty for weed twice! His recruiter told him to drink a lot of water and come back next week. I think you will be fine. They are begging for people to do Mr W's bidding.

    the places in between
    1: this never happened.
    2: Mr W isn't bidding any more.
    3: you should really stop sucking cock while posting on the webs. Your brain can only process so much gayness at one time.

    the W bidding part is gay leftie bs, but the whole thing with popping hot on a station test is very much true

    we had some piece of shit at my station dumping down gallons of water to clear his system of THC :ugh::ugh:, he spent like the entire day there thinking that doing that would qualify him to join. it's shitty but it's the reality of these all-star recruits. this was back in 06 though.
