Hi, my name is Chris, I'm 23 and was in the process of joining the Guard in Washington State when I had to go see the psychiatrist because of a few traffic violations I had when I was 18. She diagnosed me with Adjustment Disorder (which I've never been diagnosed with before) and now I'm looking at trying to get a waiver. After readin about the symptoms of Adjustment Disorder, I can honestly say that I don't have it. I think she based it on the fact that I was adopted and moved frm my adopted family in CA to WA, then my real mom moved to FL so I went with, didn't like it and couldn't find a legit job, so I moved back to WA. I know I have to see a psychologist and get a note, but does anyone know if its difficult to get a waiver passed for Adjustment Disorder? Also, how many times am I allowed to send up a waiver? I was told as many times as I'd like, but I'd rather have thorough information. My plan is to keep getting more and more psycologists and psychiatrists to say I'm ok to serve if the first one fails and I can submit as many as I want. However, if its a one shot deal, then I'll be looking at going to 3 psycologists and 3 psychiatrists before I join. I realise this is expensive, but I'm willing to do anything to serve my country. Any input would be more than helpful, thank you.
