As a child I was always short, so my parents took me to an endocrinologist who prescribed human growth hormone to me. I took it for about 5 years and just stopped it in December. I’m now 5’7” but understand that any prior use of hgh is disqualifying for military service. I was devastated to find this out but was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and received a medical waiver for it. It has been my dream to go to West Point since for as long as I can remember.
