Trying to go back active duty army after two years,

Trying to go back active duty army after two years, currently in the army reserve with no break in service between active and reserve. I have an honorable discharge, all 1's on my reenlist code, can pass a PT test, but receive 50percent disability for allergies, a scar from inguinal hernia surgery that the army fixed, lower back strain, haglund deformity, knee strain, and anxiety. I no longer have a problem with anything except I can't get rid of haglund deformity without surgery, and even the anxiety has went away...But I am still rated 50 percent overall for everything. Can I get back in? If not what can I do? Can I lower anything? Also for the explanation on anxiety it says "a mental condition has been formally diagnosed, but symptoms are not severe enough either to interfere with occupational and social functioning or to require continuous medication" is there anything I can do to get back in at all?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I was told to talk to a recruiterJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That should be it
