Good evening everybody, I seriously need your guys help please. As you can see I was "diganosed" with depression about three years ago and I'm so worried that will disqualify me, but let me explain so you could tell me if their is a possibility of me being able to join. So about three years ago me and my ex girlfriend got in a huge fight, I stormed out of my house. Long story short she got worried about me because I wasn't answering her phone calls and called the police. They found me walking around town and took me to the hospital to be evaluated. The hospital released me that night as I said I was going to make an appointment with a psychiatrist the following day. The next day rolls around I made an appointment to see a psychiatrist and the following day I go in for an "evaluation" where the guy ask me a bunch of questions without even looking at me once, and at the end of the session says I have depression and bipolar and gives me a prescription for both. I filled the prescription once and stopped taking the pills after like three weeks and stopped going back to the psychiatrist because I felt like I didn't even need them in the first place.i never did self harm or anything like that. But now I face a dilemma. I've come to the point in my life where I realized I want to do something bigger than me and do something great with my life. I want to join the massachusetts national guard but I'm pretty sure my "history" of depression and bipolar will dq me. Is there a way I can still join? As I said it's not like I was suicidal or anything its just because my ex gf called the cops. Could I get a waiver? Or meet with a doctor approved by the guard or something so I can join? More specifically I want to be part of the nation's first infantry. Please any answers would be a huge help! !!
