The job was an Air Force pilot. I was medically disenrolled from ROTC 1.5 yrs ago, and I can't get into another service.
As far as my parents, I don't know. For the first time, I opened up to them about my ex after we broke up. When they found out that she and I had talked about 2 wks after the break-up, there was a dramatic change in their behavior. They questioned everything I did, everyone I saw, and everywhere I went. My father and I didn't speak for almost two months. Two weeks ago, my mother told me I was breaking the family up and causing irreparable harm.
I am back at college now, but the counseling services on campus keep putting me on a two week waiting period. Also, because I'm in college, I pay for everything myself and don't have the money to seek other help.
I don't know where else to turn. I'm serious when I say, that whenever I talk openly to one of my friends, they pretty much stop speaking to me. The only person I have had multiple serious conversations with is my ex, which doesn't help me very much.
The diagnosis was dermatitis. It was BS, because I've seen two other dermatologists since then. I've explained the situation, showed them the sight, and had both of them declare that it's more than likely not dermatitis. The original diagnosing doctor refuses to recant his decision, and says he feels threatened by possible litigation if he recants.
The problem with the two weeks is that it continually shifts. Unless I'm pregnant (impossible because I'm male), have H1N1 or suicidal, the health center on campus really has no desire to see me for free treatment.
The thing about the dermatitis is that though it's treatable, the Dept of Defense has deemed it a nondeployable issue, meaning I cannot deploy outside of the United States. I've talked to brass all the way up to generals with multiple services, and have had senators and congressmen ask for me. No dice.
There is only a central appointment center that can be spoken to, and they are the ones giving me the run-around.
I just feel like no one cares.
