I'm a current mid in the class of 2020. To make an extremely long story short, after a surgery in January this year I was diagnosed with a complex, chronic pain condition. I spent most of my spring semester in Walter Reed undergoing treatments and hospital stays, attending only 40 days of class. I was unable to partake in any summer training's as I was in rehab or back in the hospital, and have taken the fall semester off to continue rehab and go back into the hospital a few times for more treatments. I am 100% committed to the Academy, and absolutely believe it was the right place for me. I did really well academically, and with the military stuff for both semesters, despite my extreme difficulty last spring. It's been a dream of mine ever since I was little to serve, and the Academy felt perfect. However I'm now facing a likely medical separation for this issue, and I'm just wondering if there's anyone else out there who has been through something similar. Whether they were med-boarded out themselves, or know someone who was and just has any advice on how to move on. Just being away for this semester has been hard, and I can't imagine having to leave for good.
