Final Update: Military application
Well, after 16 months of waiting after I first handed in my application to be a member of the Canadian Forces Officer, I have been told 100% that I do not meet the Common Medical Enrolment Standards. This means that my road has come to an end. It also means that I can’t even apply for the reserves as they also follow the CMES.
I feel as though I am letting my family down. I have a long tradition of Military family members and cannot carry on that lineage. I caught long and hard to prove to the CF that there is nothing wrong with me medically, but they are worried about the “what if”‘s and what could possibly go wrong in the future.
So now I continue on my life as I have been with the job I have had now for almost two years. Despite thinking that 2012 was going to be a better year than 2011, it is not starting off that way. Thankfully ITIL only 4 days into the year and there is still 362 days left for things to change and for things to get batter.
For now I drown my sorrows in a pint or two of Guinness and ponder what to do next. I want to tank everyone for all the kind words during my application process and all of the ones when the final decision was given to me. You have all been very supportive and I am extremely greatful to have you all in my life.
