Can i enlist in the marines?

Hi, i have a question on whether i can join the USMC. When i was 16 years old i had many issues with my dad and the police were called and i was taken and i was asked if i wanted to go home or if there was any place that i could go. I didnt wanna go home and had no place to go so, i was placed in a mental institution. Then they said i had bipolar disorder. I got out a week later and the issues with my dad happened again and i was taken and this time i didnt wanna go to the hospital so i had to be put in against my will. Years went by and ive been seeing a doctor and i did a psych test that proved that i wasnt bipolar and now i have been off the bipolar meds for about 3 months. No issues at all. My dad left and ive been doing very well. I am now 20 years old in university a junior majoring in bio on a pre dentistry track. Ive always wanted to join the marines and ive read online that if you are on meds then u cant join or if u are diagnosed with bipolar then u cant join. BUT i was wrongfully diagnosed and im not on meds. So is there any way i can be allowed into the marines? This has been on my mind and a dream for a long time. I havent really told anyone about this so then i thought... whats better than asking strangers for advice. Im sorry if this was long i would really appreciate some insight. If you are currently in the marines or know a recruiter then plz help me find out what i can do. Thank you so much in advance

    You are DQ, because of the time you spent in the mental hospitals, there is no way around it or exceptions.

    never.  PDQ no waivers authorized for the inpatient mental health stay.
