I posted on here a few months ago about possibly having to go through an MEB after a Celexa-induced suicide attempt, followed by being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. First, thanks for those who commented and supported me I didn't reply, but I saw the comments and the reassurance helped. My MEB has officially been started, and I'm in that minimum-four-months limbo, rushing to finish my CCAF and all that. The problem for me is since I started taking lithium and zoloft when all this occurred in October, I have gained 40 pounds. I am not one of those who can sit still for very long, either, and I'm very active and work out at least five or six times a week. The weight is purely medical and is depressing just on its own. Now I have been counseled about my fitness several times (by different individuals) and have been told that I will receive a referral EPR if I don't pass my fitness. I have done all I physically can do. I pushed myself harder than ever at our last command run and almost ended up in the ER with lithium toxicity when I was done. If I am unable to pass my PT, will that hurt my MEB and make things worse for me? This is the main issue that has been plaguing me like none other, and because I've had adverse reactions to medications in the past, they're not willing to change them. Thank you in advance for your time.
