I'm currently gearing up to apply for an AROTC or AFROTC scholarship, as I'm a junior in high school. This has always been my goal and plan - however I've realized there are quite a few Medical DQs that apply to me, so I wouldn't want to waste my time if it's certain that I won't be able to get waivers and therefore can't join. I was diagnosed with asthma as a child (before 13) and it didn't bother me very much after 13 - but I still get the prescription for an inhaler, have used it during a rugby game, and had to use an albuterol inhaler recently during a bout of pneumonia. I was treated for a depressive episode, but it was resolved and I have been off meds for the appropriate time, with no intention of going back. I also have a note from a psychiatrist officially stating that the depressive episode was resolved and the date I was taken off medication - not sure if that would help my case. I have fructose malabsorption, and I've read at least for the AF that malabsorptions are a DQ. It's managed well (on my own), no medication taken, and I've found I can now handle fairly large amounts of fructose. I had chronic headaches for about a year following an accident - treated and resolved (I was 12-13 at the time), but was also briefly treated more recently (16 yrs old) for a flareup of headaches. My neurologist has clearly stated that these headaches are not migraines. I know this is a lot (and a lot of waivers), so that's why I'm very nervous about whether I should continue dedicating myself to the military, or if I should pursue a plan B. I'm in very good physical condition now (can pass PFT, PFA, rugby player), very good grades and test scores. Any advice?
