i have a place on the lpc this year but im thinking becoming a solicitor isn't for me. i want to work in a law related role but im thinking something more active is for me. the whole reason i went into law in the first place is because i wanted to go out and help people because of what i had been through.
anyway...none of that was relevant.
im in the middle of applying to become a pcso as vacancies have become available in my area.
i have one big concern.
last year i was diagnosed with depression and a eating disorder. i was giving medication and referred to an ed clinic (but after my initial appointment and telling me they'd get in touch, they never did). i am better now...i think.
it was well over a year ago now and its something ive got over. it was just a bad point in my life. things are fine now.
i also had a few problems in my 2nd year of uni and was on medication then for anxiety and depression.
is the fact i suffered from these illnesses going to effect my application? they want to employ people who can handle the job. not someone who is going to crumble. the reason i ask is because they carry out a medical examination and i am assuming they will get access to all of my medical files? i dont want them thinking that i am unsuitable for the job just because i went through a bad patch
is it even worth me applying? i really want to do this but i can't help but feel as though my health problems in the past will hold me back
