I have a question. The army diagnosed me as bipolar and retired me. I just got my severance pay after four years on TDRL. Since, I have spoken to two other docs who have confirmed that not only do I not have Bipolar, but whomever diagnosed me got their degree out of a cracker jack box (direct quote). Both of these doctors, independently, stated that I had PTSD and a momentary break. One doctor went so far as to say that if she failed to go to sleep for 5 days, she would hallucinate as well. Long story short, much better now. It was all situational and I have no problems. The problem with the western way of thinking is that there is no belief that these types of things can heal.Is there a way for me to get my diagnosis changed and go back in the Army? I'm certain the severance pay would have to be recouped, of course it already is by the VA (whenever they start to do that of course). So, is there a way? I did not receive this diagnoses until recently. is there an appeal process I can do, retroactively?A perm exemption doesn't go high up. It is just decided by the command you're in that you can still do your job, even with that medical problem. Where a new canadite wouldn't even get the option.
