    It doesn't matter how much hope you have. And it is not a narrow mindset to lay out the parameters for joining and then simply tell you whether or not you meet them. People come here all the time with things that disqualify them and believe they can make it happen just because they want it to happen so bad. There are other ways to serve your country besides being in the military. Look into perhaps your state defense force if they have one. These are volunteer organizations that work to support the military and still give you a military environment.

      Well, going to the hospital doesn't mean the OP was necessarily "admitted". With psychological issues, a patient can go to the hospital to be evaluated (example, going to the ER) without getting admitted to the psych ward for "long" term evaluation. It's a grey area here that really depends on what her medical records say.

      Considering the OP's requests above, I'm closing this thread.
