    DoDMET Exam Packet Download Trouble

    I just scheduled my medical and eye exams and I was told I needed to download my packet and bring it for the medical exam. However, the left-side bar displaying the checklist will not let me scroll down far enough to click the link. How can I find and download my packet since it’s not letting me...

    Contacts for Medical Exam

    I wear contacts. I’ve already had my optometric exam. I know I don’t have to remove them 3 days prior for the medical exam, but am I allowed to wear them to the medical exam? Or do I have to wear my glasses? It doesn’t say anything about this on the dodmets website so I assume it’s ok. Just...

    Pre Medical Exam Restrictions?

    My son has his medical exam scheduled for next week. The instructions say to avoid any strenuous physical activity for 48 prior. It’s a big training week for swim and he’s the team captain so his coach is not going to be thrilled with that—but he certainly doesn’t want to do anything that...

As we were together, he suggested I get high with him to help myself calm down. Stupidly, I agreed. I did not know how to say no to him, but I also just made a...
