  • please help! Facing disqualification

    Hey guys, Ive ran into a big problem, ive always wanted to join the guard but today found out i have retinitis pigmentosa. Ive never realized having any of the symptoms of it or anything. Im a certified EMT/Firefighter in the civilan world and never encounterd any problems. My rectruiter told me to just bring the paperwork with me to MEPS and see what the Docs say. Ive been researching this for like 5 hours straight and cant find anything on people being in my shoes. My recruiter said I could get a waiver for it and be sent to another eye specialist and see what they say seeing how the doc i went to was for eye glasses and not an opthamologist. HAS anyone ever heard of any cases like mine or similar with eye realted issues. I have been so excited lately on finally making my decision on joining final, and now this. Any info or advice from anyone would be greatly appriciated!

    Thanks everyone!
