I'm in the process of trying to sign up to my university's RNU (just starting my second year), and it seems like the application is going well. I'd really like to become an officer and join warfare, and I think it may be something I'd enjoy and be good at. All the while, I've been wrestling with the NHS on attempting to rescind a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome I got back when I was a kid. I've felt for years that the diagnosis was wrong, but now that it may prevent me following up the job I want to do I've been trying to dispute it for the past several months. I'm being sent on a constant runaround by the mental health services, being referred from one department to another (with an inevitable one month gap between any correspondence and an appointment, of course); it's been going on for the past half a year. I completely understand the rationale and the reasons the RN and the URNU do not accept those with ASD, but I firmly believe that my diagnosis was and is bunk and I would be able to serve well. If the mental health specialists weren't giving me such a runaround, I think I may be able to have the diagnosis rescinded by now. Would medical give me a firm "no" on the basis of the diagnosis? I am socially apt and clear in my speech, and I can pick up body language and subtle social cues; I can demonstrate and argue why I the diagnosis is nonsense, but would medical be forced to deny me anyway, or given that I'm disputing it and I really don't display autistic characteristics will he give any leeway? Cheers in advance.
