Greetings all,

I’m being recommended for a 2nd Limdu for MDD. I’ve been on a list of medications, have not missed an appointment and do everything as required. My psychiatrist changed my diagnosis to adjustment disorder a couple months ago and it seems my therapist and psychiatrist are in disagreement with updating my diagnosis, it’ll go from adjustment disorder back to MDD after time i visit either one of them.

Last visit to one of my doctors, overheard that an admin sep was floated as an idea for me.

Even with adjustment disorder, after 6 months it would be considered chronic and therefore rateable, and i would have to be boarded. But if i was diagnosed with MDD, would CoG admin sep (if that’s what I’m reading correctly) apply? I read that in 2016 Ray Maybus signed that order that mental health diagnosis leads to a med board before administrative action.

I have no punitive history or any pending.

If you are referred and found fit then they can move on with the admin sep I haven't read the official policy but it is mostly there to protect Sailors from misconduct with a confirmed diagnosis. The admin sep is always a favorite tool to screw service members because they give you an honorable discharge and you typically keep all your VA benefits. How long have you been in?

I was given advice to talk to my peblo but i haven’t hit the board stage yet to meet the person. Just looking for guidance or advice on who to seek out that i can talk to about this, safely, since i don’t want to raise any red flags for being too involved in my own care. Just want to make sure I’m covered for all my issues when i do eas
