You are correct in your assessment: I was Administratively Separated and Discharged on March 24, 2014.~
I got into some verbal only arguments with my fellow division shipmates and I was having abnormal physical problems like horribly painful back-muscle spasms that were actually caused by suppressed stress
and this in combination with my high school history of failing to adjust I was diagnosed with a 'General Personality Disorder': basically I was having trouble 'adjusting' to 'a military Navy lifestyle'
and usually they would suggest the P.A.S.S. program as this happens some times or often to new recruits especially if they've never lived away from their parents before,
but because of my history in high school my psychologist said he was seeing a 'pattern' and he diagnosed me saying 'I never developed any social skills' and he said that this 'condition' was disqualifying so I was to be 'separated' and then processed out of the military.
At first I fought it all the way, but then I had a mental break-through of an epiphany during P.E.P. or Psychological Education Program and realized I had joined for my parents and I just severely brainwashed myself into believing I also wanted to join for myself.~ So I waived my rights and a 3 weeks later: here I am.~
What I feel like I really want is to be free, experience every thing, and happy: so I am now a Freelancer as in I don't want to have a 'permanent' job and I don't want a 'career'.~
I already have trouble dealing with stress for as long as I can remember, and I didn't realize it until I got home but the military is incredibly stressful.~
I know the rest of the Navy is not like Basic Training, but just the thought of being "tied", I compare the idea to a dog on a leash the dog is free to do what they want within confines of that leash but they are always aware that that leash is always there, now makes me want to jump on over to Canada then hitch the next ride to Europe.~ Haha!~
Oh and you do
get access to the internet in separations, but you're not "supposed to" be on sites like this or 'Facebook' but most people do any ways as in their words, "I don't care." since they are being basically 'kicked out' of the military in their eyes.~
