Well, my goal of joining the Army (which I've been working towards fitness-wise for the past 2 years) has been shot down after my medical appeal came back with a resounding "No, fuck off". What should I do with my life now? I don't want to join the police because I cannot deal with wankers causing trouble, and I don't know how to drive since my plan was to learn how to drive in the Army for free. I'm toying with the idea of taking up boxing. What do you lot recommend?

There was obviously a reason why you failed the medical exam, what was it?

Quit worrying about and go for a long hike.

When I was younger I had a few epileptic seizures. They were relatively minor, in that I was fully aware of my surroundings and was (mostly) in control of my body. The only known trigger was CRT televisions and monitors. My fits would always occur after a good amount of time had passed when watching the monitor (usually around 20 minutes). Given this, the rarity of CRT monitors nowadays and the fact that it's been over 7 years since my last fit, I would have bet my life on the appeal being accepted. But apparently, when it comes to photosensitive epilepsy, they allow no exceptions.

I should add that my seizures involved my head jerking back to the point where I would have to lower myself to the ground.

was this in your medical records?

>>17982710
if boxing is your interest definitely go for it, maybe you could join the fire dept to have a (manly) job, if ur boxing goes anywhere u can focus on that later on.

Yep, all of this was in the medical records and doctors note I gave to the appeals guys. But no luck.

>>17982797
Firefighting doesn't sound like a bad idea honestly. I'll look into it, and hopefully the medical requirements aren't similar.

damn that sucks, I want to join the airforce and I think I might have mild dyslexia (never tested) which is an instant reject so I wonder if I get any tests. anyway good luck to you bro
