  2. P.S how will AngryDoc's sticky work with my case?

    Do I fight the case that there was no reason that I should have taken them to begin with?
    I did act up a little to get them... just so I could feel better.

  3. You have to be 2 years clear of anti-depressants before you will pass a medical examination for the Armed Forces. This is to ensure you don't suffer low mood once taken off the meds. Whilst you had perfectly good reason to be prescribed fluoxetine, we have to ensure things are stable before we put you through a relatively stressful environment. I'm afraid this is common sense - applied by people with a lot of experience dealing with mental health issues in Service personnel.

    As my sticky suggests, you cannot appeal our standards.
     
  4. I understand this, but I'm absolutely fine :D

    I truly believe that I perhaps miss-understood the reasons for taking them. I wasn't depressed, just down for a week. So I started taking them straight away. Been off them for 3 months and it's had no side effects...

  5. Noted, but the 2 year rule will still apply.
     
  6. Thought I would ask here rather than start a new thread. Are heart murmurs checked for in the initial Royal Navy medical? I know of quite a few people who have been deferred from Army selection because of them and I would hate to pass the initial medical then get the boot at Raleigh.
     
  7. If you have a murmur without an echocardiogram proving all is well then I'm afraid you won't even get as far as RALEIGH.
     
  8. So it would have been picked up in the medical? I've never had a murmur but after waiting so long for entry I just wanted to make sure that if I did it would have already been picked up
     
  9. WTF are you on about????
     
  10. Err, yes. The bit where the doctor listened to your heart with a stethoscope is to pick up murmurs.

    If this didn't happen please PM me the location of your medical as I may need to have a word!
     
  11. Yes they did listen to my heart, however I was unsure whether or not murmurs could be picked up with a stethoscope or only with an echocardiogram. I know I sound incredibly daft but I am clueless when it comes to medical malarky.

    what I should have asked to avoid coming off as a moron is; do stethoscopes pick up heart murmurs.

  12. yes they do....
     
  13. No not at all. They pick up nothing, they just do it for fun really. :eek:
     
  14. so just to Clarify that Chico, just for Drivintothebeach, they don't?
     
  15. Indeed they do; however they can be fooled. All you need to do is subtly make a 'bum-bum. . .bum-bum. . .bum-bum' in a rhythmical fashion with your mouth, and the doctor will hear only that through the stethoscope.

    You gopping, highly retarded camel-toe of a human being.
     
  16. Ask a burglar. He'll give you better advice than any doctor,they're supposed to be pretty good for cracking safes,

  18. Her: Oh doctor, I'm in trouble.
    Him: Well, goodness gracious me.
    Her: For every time a certain man
    Is standing next to me.
    Him: Mmm?
    Her: A flush comes to my face
    And my pulse begins to race,
    It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
    Him: Oh!
    Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Him: Well, goodness gracious me.
    Him: How often does this happen?
    When did the trouble start?
    You see, my stethoscope is bobbing
    To the throbbing of your heart.
    Her: What kind of man is he
    To create this allergy?
    It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
    Him: Oh!
    Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Him: Well, goodness gracious me.

    Him: From New Delhi to Darjeeling
    I have done my share of healing,
    And I've never yet been beaten or outboxed,
    I remember that with one jab
    Of my needle in the Punjab
    How I cleared up beriberi
    And the dreaded dysentery,
    But your complaint has got me really foxed.
    Her: Oh.

    Her: Oh doctor, touch my fingers.
    Him: Well, goodness gracious me.
    Her: You may be very clever
    But however, can't you see,
    My heart beats much too much
    At a certain tender touch,
    It goes boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
    Him: I like it!
    Her: Boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Him: Well, goodness gracious me.

    Him: Can I see your tongue?
    Her: Aaah.
    Him: Nothing the matter with it, put it away please.
    Her: Maybe it's my back.
    Him: Maybe it is.
    Her: Shall I lie down?
    Him: Yes.
    Her: Ahhh...

    Him: My initial diagnosis
    Rules out measles and thrombosis,
    Sleeping sickness and, as far as I can tell,
    Influenza, inflammation,
    Whooping cough and night starvation,
    And you'll be so glad to hear
    That both your eyeballs are so clear
    That I can positively swear that you are well,
    Ja-ja, ja-ja-ja-ja.

    Her: Put two and two together,
    Him: Four,
    Her: If you have eyes to see,
    The face that makes my pulses race
    Is right in front of me.
    Him: Oh, there is nothing I can do
    For my heart is jumping too.
    Both: Oh, we go boom boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom
    Boody-boom boody-boom boody-boom-boom-boom,
    Her: Goodness gracious,
    Him: How audacious!
    Her: Goodness gracious,
    Him: How flirtatious!
    Her: Goodness gracious,
    Him: It is me.
    Her: It is you?
    Him: Ah, I'm sorry, it is us.
    Both: Ahhh!
