What is good about the military is nearly everything can be waived. Though there are some mental illnesses that are not congruent with military service, they are very rare. As long as the mental illness is not categorized as a psychotic disorder and can be treatable, you should still be able to join the Air Force. An Air Force recruiter should also be able to help guide you on your pursuits to join the military.
