This past year I tried to join the Navy. well I chose to be honest about my childhood asthma (I had 1 asthma attack when I was 4 years old and had breathing issues UNTIL I was 11 then I got off my inhaler). It's allergy induced, not exercise. I've never had problems since I was 11, however I picked up a bad habit and I am actually a 2 weeks clean from cigarettes. When I took the palumonary test I passed but it showed bronchial reactivity, my officers tried for a waiver but the Doc said no. I was thinking of maybe joining a different branch (NG ) and try and get tests from a real allergist to run tests and to measure where its at. Then maybe my recruiter and I can sweet talk the Doc. I honestly think the only reason it showed anything is because of the D*mn cigarrettes. I really don't like giving up things but is there a slight chance of me getting in? And don't please don't warn me on the dangers of asthma magically coming up for no apparent reason or anything related to any consqequences because I'll ignore it. Or maybe this is one goal that can't be kicked?
