Thread revival, first post.
My situation: I'm currently an AS200 in AFROTC competing for a FT slot. I have been officially diagnosed with ADD (not hyperactive) since I was very young and I have an extensive history with taking medication and using IEPs (after age 14). I performed poorly in HS academically although there were multiple circumstances so I would not say that ADD was the main cause. I have read the standards and I've basically prepared myself for the inevitable reality of getting my DODMERB disqualified and having to go through the waiver process.
However, while I have taken medications sporadically over the last 7 years including stimulants, the longest I ever took them was 2-3 months at a time and never consistently. Most recently I tried taking a nonstimulant last June (so less than 12 months ago) for only 2 months but it didn't really make a difference (meaning the effects of ADD are so low that any medication doesn't really make an impact). As of now I can function without medication and do not require any extra time or accommodations in school. I have spoken to several doctors and physiologists and they have all agreed that I do not require it and I can function just fine off of it.
If theres anyone who has any advice on this subject or personal stories please post them or PM me. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
