Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. i was recently reject during my medical because i overdosed last year, it was a totaly isolated incident and it was the 1st and only time i have self harmed. im currently trying to appeal, but i would like to know if anyone thinks that it might be successfull or not?
  2. Short answer, no.

    The RN is already overburdened with medical and welfare leg-irons, and doesn't need to take people on who are pre-disposed to theatrical behaviour. Save yourself the grief of trying, as it will make the eventual rejection harder to take.
  3. Afraid not!!!

    Try the post office!
  4. First and foremost, you cannot appeal against a decision made against set standards. Tough. Your appeal will be unsuccessful.

    You will not be even potentially medically fit for another 2 years. Even then, it depends on the reasons for your self-poisoning. If you were under a particular stress at the time, then your case will be stronger than if you were just a bit bored (like the majority of self-harmers, in my experience).
