I do not regret holding it back, I was abe to progress further, doing things that the administration would have likely not have OK'd if it had been known. Of course with that said, my progression has been blessedly stable, and it would have been wrong to continue if I thought that I was putting others in harms way.
I am absolutely positive it would ruin my career. I have 4 years left, then I dont care who knows but until then, I will push it, fake it, whatever it takes. Of course if I got to the point where if I was to 94 someone and doubted myself, I would hang it up immediately. In this line of business its tough. The physical abilities test and gun qualifications are TOUGH. But so far I am doing ok. Were you able to get medical retirement based on your MS?
