I am 36 years old, and I'm seriously considering a career in the foreign service after spending the past 12 years as a journalist.
I have had several bouts with mild/situational depression over the past ten years, mainly after the death of a family member and later dealing with some heavy duty pressures. I was treated with an anti-depressant in all of the instances. I'm fine now and no longer taking any sort of medication.
Will this past medical history eliminate me from consideration for the Foreign Service? Will it in any way jeopardize my chances of acceptance?
