    I received notification a short while ago about being Disqualified medically due to a bee sting allergy I have. I've gotten stung twice in my life and both stings resulted in mild hives but no swelling of any kind. My RC applied for a waiver for me last week, but does anybody have any idea on my chances of getting the waiver or a possible timeline for it? DoDMERB has all of my documents already, including a letter from my allergist that states that I "can be considered NOT to have a risk for a severe reaction to insect stings greater than that of the general population."

    Thanks for the help!

    I wish you the best on this waiver. I do know that bee sting reactions are unpredictable despite best guess estimates. Too many variables to consider.

    I'm interested to know what others think on this since allergies are such a big part of life.
