Hello all. We're a couple that just applied. We did the medical application, and our results really did a number to the countries that we were looking to apply for; I didn't have one country available, she didn't have another, and in the end only one of our top 3 choices were available.
Thing being, our medical differences are minimal - she has sports-related asthma that hardly ever needs an inhaler for (and doesn't, unless she's long-distance running and even then is not necessary), and I had some conjunctivitis (cleared out like it would, and it happened well before the "recent time frame" the application notes). I don't see either of these being so crucial as to exclude countries (and that's my opinion, of course there might be details I don't know that make these situations more critical).
I heard back from our recruiter with a couple options - call the nurse phone line, or put it in comments that make note of our opinion concerning medical details.
Have other peace corps workers had experience with this issue? Any insight to the process?
Thank you for your help!
