I have posted a couple of posts about joining, i apologise if i am repeating what has all ready been asked. I need a serious answer with some clarity. I am planning on joining the TA (infantry) however i have asthma. I know that this is a HUGE thing against my application, but i was wondering if there is some way to appeal. I have never been admitted to hospital because of it. I can run 1.5 miles in 12 minutes, with no asthmatic signs and no inhaler needed. I was in the cadets for two years and had no problems with my asthma. I often do exercise and do not need my inhaler. I get mild asthma around animals, like horses but i am not intending on going in the household cavalry. Can you give me some advice on this and how i go about informing the recruiters (and the medical assessment). Any help or advice?
