Fingers Cross my trip to the AFCO Will bring good news!.. Got an interview tomorrow and im going to see if it will be possible for me to still join the marines even tho i have been taking medication up till last year for ADHD.

Im Just going to be honest with them and tell them why i was diognoised with it and show them how mature iam and fingers crossed i come across very well!.. And they will tell me that there is a good chance that ill still be able to get in.

Im sure there must be a few lads in the marines with ADHD. There a Thousands of people who have ADHD as a kid. Some might not even realise but its true!. So i just pray to god that i can still join!.

Maybe my doctor can clear my medical record of it??. Is this possible?.. Also if my doctor explains to the Medical Staff that i have no symptoms of ADHD anymore that might help!..


FINGERS CROSSED :unsure:

Best of luck Rusty,

You have a good attitude and let your Careers Officer see that, respectfully show determination to forward your application. remember the AFCO officer wants you to join just as much as you do.

All the best
