  • Waiver for prior eating disorder non other specified?

    I understand that the military will not allow enlistments for those who have prior mental ailments. I know this includes those who have had an eating disorder (including unspecified) for longer than three months. In my case a few years ago I was hospitalized for a week (voluntarily), that would be the time of diagnosis and the time I was medically diagnosed, after I was discharged I experienced no relapses and no further medical attention was given, other than check-ups which lasted for about 4 months. I did receive counseling for about 4-5 months though medically I was up to a normal weight. My question is will I need a waiver to serve, as medically I only fit the criteria for less than 3 months time. However I fear that the few months of counseling may disqualify me, and if that is the case, will it be possible to attain a waiver? Please be brutally honest in answering this question, and please no one suggest that I lie, I know that meps can pull medical records and more importantly lying is against my values and the values that I would swear by if I am accepted into the National Guard. I am currently mentally and physically fit, however I understand that the military may consider me a liability. Again please be brutally honest.

    Additional info: I was never on any medication.
