I am at a loss of what to do. I have just been told that I am being medically separated from the Naval Academy, and that I will not be able to graduate or commission. It has been my dream to become a Marine Pilot, and I was selected to do so at service assignment. However, because I sought help for depression, I have been found medically unqualified by the academy, and they are separating me. I have tried to fight this, but it seems that there is nothing I can do. They have given me five business days to check out, and I do not know how to deal with some of this stuff. Aside from losing my career, my dream, and my naval academy family, I feel like a complete and utter failure, and am entirely embarrassed and ashamed about my reason for being separated. I also have no idea what to do about a few other things, for example, my loan. As soon as I am separated, the interest rate sky rockets, and I don't have the ability to access most of what I saved from it. I also don't know if I can argue that the academy pay for any further schooling that I have, because they are kicking me out so close to graduation. Going home is incredibly anxiety-inducing as well-- thinking about answering questions from friends and family about why I am home is incredibly upsetting, and I do not know how I will handle the transition back into 'normal' life, seeing as no one in my family or community from home has ever been involved with the military. I would appreciate some guidance in this, and would gladly accept any insight anyone might have regarding this. Thank you very much.
