I’m 21 and currently in the Navy, I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and stopped taking it before I joined the Navy. I did not tell the navy about my ADHD and it hasn’t been that much of a problem but work is a struggle most days. I work in intel sitting at a computer all day and it tends to get boring. I am considering going to SUNY Maritime in 2022.
My understanding is the USCG doesn’t allow people on Amphetamine’s to get their third mates license Would being diagnosed by a DOD doctor have any impact on the USCG giving a waiver, I know Navy is DOD and USCG is DHS. It will show up on my medical records which the USCG has access to because of TRICARE. Worst case scenario I don’t get prescribed/diagnosed by a doctor and have to potentially struggle through college.
