the past year my asthma has declined prettily steadily, a lot of emergency admissions etc. I've been told it's brittle asthma been on steroids have good days and bad days but life has changed pretty dramatically.
As you can imagine this effects work greatly, (I teach English in senior schools) mainly because I'm unreliable. And it's taking me longer to get over attacks etc because I've had quite a few. Plus my some days i get out of breath really quickly. My work have been understanding but my occupational health advisor for work have spoken with my consultant and have said they think I should be dismissed on medical grounds.
I am devastated however I completely understand they can not let this go on from their point of view. They need a teacher who can be there all the time.
My question is, what now? what kind of work can you do when your so unreliable? I have been told I can apply for benefits etc but I really want to work. I know there is hope and they may find some way to stabilise this but till then what am I meant to do??
