Who here depressed but has no right to be?
>26 years old
>probably 7/10 in the looks dept
>have good career (army officer, Britbong)
>live in university style accommodation with a bunch of other people my age
>good family, parents still together and now retired together, brother has just joined army as well, sister married
>family home in one of the nicest parts of the country (Lake District)
>have a car and motorbike
>no gf, occasionally get dates from online dating but only ever had a gf for 3 months at one point a few years ago
>slightly socially awkward
I don't really have any right to be depressed but I still get it. Anyone else know this feel?
my life isn't that great, but it's easily fixable if I just got a job.
>last 2 digits of your post decides which girl you can pick
>you can only pick one
>implying you have a choice at all in this roll
This is some strange guilt tripping, this is basically how normies treat robots.
I remember you. You were saying how being an army officer is "basically a reasonably well paid office job" and how you spent most of your time "replying to emails".
What's up bro. I'm >>25566344, still at Sandhurst atm. Just about to go into senior term. How's life?
Same here, i think it's because of winter. I fucking hate winter. Riding my bike to school -6, dark af outside at 7:35 am just aint fucking fun
Haha, yep, that's me. Things are all right. I don't even hate my job, it just wasn't the life of adventure and excitement I though it'd be. It's rather weird getting thrashed through years of training, then getting to Regt and the main effort being the Summer Ball.
Look forward to Broadsword, or whatever it's called now. Genuinely an amazing experience.
>the main effort being the Summer Ball
I remember you saying exactly this haha.
I'm commissioning into the RA and hoping to do some ally shit through them. Commando course, patrols course, whatever. My family knows an RA officer that is doing some sneaky-beaky stuff at the moment and has just been posted to Poole (SBS). He says he was put on exercise alone on Dartmoor recently for 10 days with only 11 boiled sweets.
wud b laff. Better than sitting on a tank hoping I'm not obsolete and will never ever be deployed anywhere except Canada or sitting in a shellscrape writing orders for my trillionth platoon attack against one guy under a poncho.
>loving gf of 2 years
>have my own place, even a little yard
>have a degree, working on my second
>work comfy part time job
>drive a nice car
>parents love me
All for nothing because I literally hate myself. Anything bad happens and my thoughts immediately drop to suicide. Sometimes I can barely move or talk because I'm just so overcome with despair, I've tried to kill myself before but ultimately I'm just a spoiled, cowardly brat that doesn't have the guts. I hope I get in a car accident or get cancer and die. People would kill for my life and it's wasted on me, literally autistic with no social skills and horrible anxiety, I'm barely staying afloat, I just want it all to stop
Tell me more. How old are you? How long between your two degrees and did you work or do anything in that time?
Above all why are you doing a second degree? I assume they're both bachelors level. What are they in?
Yeah, RA is a good choice. Best Troop Commanders' Course, people respect you, big enough Corps to go off and do actual interesting stuff. If you want to go SF I wouldn't waste your time with Cdo, P Coy, etc. Do orienteering, go on the SF briefing week and crack straight on. Although do your research - I work with SF types arm, and you'd probably be surprised at what the officers actually do day-to-day.
>Do orienteering, go on the SF briefing week
I don't know what these are - can you explain?
>you'd probably be surprised at what the officers actually do day-to-day.
Hmm..can you tell me more?
Ive been severely depressed for the past few months and I'm it entirely sure why. I'm way better at being social now and don't throw spaghetti everywhere when talking to girls. I have a job (shitty fast food wagekek job), I have a few friends (could have more but extremely introverted and asocial), and I'm like a 7.5/10.
Lately I've been considering suicide more than usual.
It's a chemical imbalance in your brain. Consult a medical professional.
You're in the bingbongmilitar, did they not teach you to talk to a doctor if you have something wrong with you?
They'll set you right if you're honest with them.

I feel ya, OP. I really feel that I have no right to feel unhappy about things since I really had a very comfy life so far. Especially after I read some of the stories by robots here who had actual mental disease and severe family issues.
I just try to respect that and be a responsible member of society, but am still depressed and kind of enjoying it.
>pretty much all my life I've been reading about joining the military
>tfw out of shape and probably not military material at all
I'm 19, is it too late to try to straighten out and have a go at it?
>literally dating/fucking a Stacy right now
>honestly can't stand it
>tried to tell her I only want to be friends
>she keeps trying to set up dates
>keeps telling people we're dating
>many mutual friends so I can't just tell her to fuck off
Honestly I should really just date her, it's just a number of small things that are turning me off of this girl.
This. OP here again, I have no right to be depressed. Maybe it's my occasionally shit social skills that get me down. But that's nto enough.
Maybe >>25569825 is right. Perhaps I should - but the army don't like people that have mental disorders.
>18, almost 19
>in one of the best unis in the country
>got my own apartment, moving in half a year from now
>I'm overweight and can't get myself to work out
>still in love with the girl I kinda dated when I was 14
>failed one of my subjects
>weird relationship with parents
>0 emotional intelligence
>constant mood swings that are more frequent than ever
>feel like I'm not living my life how I want to be because I want to give back to society in a meaningful way
I feel like shit, then I realize that I have no right to feel like shit and I feel wven shittier. At least I can vent here, because I'm afraid of others intentions.
Nah, in the US Army at least the policy is to view it basically the same way as any other injury you might get while serving once you're already in. They want you performing your job at 100%, so if you have a treatable condition they'll treat it to get you there. They've already invested thousands in you through training and what not, it's in their best interest to help fix what's wrong and continue to get their money's worth. I have depression, I talked to a doctor, got an anti-depressant, and had the option of weekly counseling, RTD.
im gonna make you bleed missy
Still me, just want to say further that the whole "don't lie on the medical paperwork or we'll jail you" stuff only matters on the way in. You've already proven you are competent enough to pass training and do your job, there's no reason to court martial you for having a problem you want to fix.
Not being eligible for depression kind of makes it worse I feel like
Shit really? So the website and everything saying "infantry requirement 1.5 miles under 12:45" is bullshit?
I kinda understand that 12:45 is slow but I thought doing your 1.5 miles under 10:30 was enough
For context I'm just comin back from a 4 month ( officially documented and treated ) injury and doing my 1.5 mile bang on 10:35. Just wanna join as soon as I can and almost anything bar RLC , Sigs etc
The website says that? Sounds like it's wrong. I'm at RMAS at the moment and to PASS we have to do it in 10:30, and for infantry they "say" you need to do it in less than 9:30 but I know people who haven't quite made it in that time but still got infantry (though the majority are under 9:30).
Yeah website says 12:45 infantry , 13:15 support , 14:05 everything else at Selection still.
I'd be going selection for regular entry at Lichfield.
So you really think a 1.5 mile time around 10:00 wouldn't cut it for infantry no more? Damn. Fair enough but wish the website said so
RLC gets a bad rep outside the army and Sandhurst because a lot of people are posh toff cunts that swan around visiting regiments and then ultimately fail at AOSB. Ignore what they say - RLC is probably a better career choice than the RAC unless you want to be a cunt for 3 years before being forced to leave the army.
Signals have some pretty good branches, not sure why you think anything is wrong with them. 299 squadron for example do what I call "sneaking into hotel rooms and drilling holes" type operating. Other roles include infantry attachments where you tab with a radio on your back with an infantry unit into combat.
Obviously the infantry, RAC and RA will always be the most popular, and the AAC are obviously popular if you want to be a helicopter pilot. But ultimately as an officer your job will be the same wherever you go in the army (AAC admittedly is different).
You're going as a soldier? Maybe it's different, I don't know. But I think you will do the BAA test (aptitude) and based on that you will be given your choices of arm. The most intelligent people go to the Int corps, REME, Signals and possible Engineers. Infantry tend to take the lowest scorers. Bear in mind who you could end up serving with when it comes to being a soldier.
I don't think they'll stop you if you score highly, so don't worry about that.
Even though I'm an officer (or will be soon) I fucking hate some officers. Something about Sandhurst just reinforces their sense of superiority and arrogance. It's most common in the RAC.
Ah okay cool, I guess I'll just tell me CSM my position / run time and if they say I should go selection then I will if not I'll keep getting the time lower.
I've heard that about RAC officers before but I'm not to worried , I just wanna do 5/6 years playing soldier then move on with my life I think
>19 years old
>8 or 9 /10, have women looking at me constantly when I leave the house
>tanned skin, brown hair blue eyes, 6'3 with broad shoulders, low body fat %
>academically gifted, 98th percentile in my country in abstract reasoning, 99th percentile in clerical speed and accuracy
>top of my class in electrical engineering, 3.8 GPA
>on a sports scholarship for basketball, starting point guard on the team
>also starting striker on the soccer / football team
I mean at the same time I'm a social recluse and I don't talk to anyone. My parents were both fucked in the head and I have a lot of mental issues. I've been going to counseling since I was 13, been on anti-depressants since I was 15.
I'm not but I really need to roll 00 desu senpai
