I know no one has a definitive answer, but could you give me insight based on your experiences?
Also, most camps allow 5 books to be sent at one time, but I read on this that Carswell only allows 3 and must be in an envelope? Could domeone clarify this for me? I want to package and mail some books before I leave (probably in June).
Thanks for any info you can provide and for the above post, which was VERY helpful!
This is too late for you but it might help someone else...
Taking psych meds like Zoloft alone will not disqualify you from camp status or relegate you only to FMC Carswell. The pill line at FPC Alderson, for instance, is made up mostly of women taking psych meds and the line got so long that they had to split it into two shifts.
