afternoon chaps. ill get straight to the point; i was diagnosed with aspergers (autism) when i was young and they started giving me incapacity benefits when i started college. 6 years later and im still getting the benefits, but the aspergers doesn't really affect me anymore. so ive decided to stop being a lazy twat & leeching from the government, and do something worthwhile for a change. i plan on trying to join the navy. i spoke to the local AFCO last week who told me that usually having aspergers would stop me from joining, but considering my case is so mild i might have a chance. i didnt mention the benefits though, as to be honest its bloody embarassing. is me being on benefits for all this time gonna stop me from joining? p.s feel free to take the piss. i deserve it.
