Marine Corps and Being Bipolar!?
k heres the story. when i was about 11 years old i was told i was bipolar and i started taking meds for it. it was an off an on going thing. i was taking the meds for periods of depression and anger. I am almost 19 years old now and have not taken anything for almost 2 years now. My parents and i know i am fine and well. My mom took me to my Doctor almost a year ago and he said that i am not bipolar and there's no way that i am. i just recently graduated from high school and am wanting to be a Marine. i am not sure that this is a conflict and if i am going to be an automatic DQ since my doctor said i am not bipolar and i am healthy. Let me know. Thanks in advanced.

As far as I know, any history of Bipolar is a PDQ. Friend of mine who was off meds for a year by his doctor tried to join and all the recruiters he went to said don't even try.

Are you serious? not even if i got a letter from my doctor saying that i should have never been on the meds and stating that im not bipolar? That was also a time in which i was understanding that my parents are divorced so im pretty sure that played a big role in it.

People handle divorces in different ways, believe me, but not everyone is diagnosed with bipolar. You can serve your country in other honorable ways, but I don't think the military is for you. Serving in the military is a privilege not a right. And the people setting forth that privilege have certain regulations to abide by, and this happens to be one of them.

Sorry, chances are slim to none. Another reason why I hate doctors, they screw more things up than they fix
