Hello, my name is Max, I'm a 19 year old woman, and I have multiple C-Spine issues (I already made a post about it before discovering this forum, I'll try to link it once it is approved so all the replies are in one place and I don't make a duplicate thread). Long story short, I got injured in Army BCT, it wasn't discovered to be a spine issue for months, I was told I was faking by providers and my command, I was told it was all in my head and even referred to a mental health provider who said it wasn't, and was eventually given an Entry-Level Separation for not completing training due to getting hurt.
I finally joined a forum because I see that I may not be the only young person out there with issues like mine. It gives me a little bit of hope: I may be able to live with this and lead a normal life.
