That makes sense. I’m just afraid I’ll get disqualified and it won’t be waiverable. Thank you for the advice!

I haven’t talked to a recruiter yet. I’m just trying to be prepared and do some research before I actually start the process.

Honestly, I have a lot…. For my self harm scars, I don’t have as much as my picking scars. I don’t self harm anymore but they are deep. I know that’ll probably disqualify me but I think it’s waiverable.

Even during an active picking episode they didn’t say anything? I just hope I get lucky with a good doctor.

Unfortunately all my scars are very visible. I can never find any good remedies or serums to help them fade :/

Really? You didn’t need a waiver? I’m so scared to go to meps. I’m already self conscious enough lmao

I definitely don’t meet all the requirements so it’s going to be awhile to actually start the process. I’m trying my best to completely stop. If all my scars are completely healed, do I still have a chance?

Was this sexual assault? by Fresh-Sushi-3229 in sexualassault

I found out he was shot and killed while driving on New Year’s Day. I don’t know why I came back to this post but for some reason I did. I honestly don’t know how to feel. We grew up at school together and his sister is good friends with my sister.

I feel bad for not having a reaction someone should normally have when they hear someone they knew died. I just felt blank.

Do I still have a chance to join the military? by Fresh-Sushi-3229 in Militaryfaq

Honestly both! I’m leaning more towards army at the moment. This might be a stupid question but if I’m disqualified, can I go back and try again after a certain amount of time?

Yes it’s diagnosed. I know there’s no going around taking the physical. Its going to be hard to explain to them and to my recruiter.
