Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with tracheobronchomalacia a rare lung/throat condition. I'm only 20 and have been told it will only get worse, and as I'm so ill now and so young in the early stages of this illness the worst is yet to come.
I've applied for a blue badge and sent all my evidence off as I get very breathless and tire easily, I never use stairs if I can avoid it and on bad days I can bearly walk 2 or 3 steps. But I'm worried about not being given one because I'm so young.
I'm starting a new college course in September and the student carpark is a good 5 minute walk away from the building I will be taught in. The disability team have told me I can park at the building I need to and even arrange for a reserved disabled parking space to be given for my use only BUT only if I have a blue badge. If I don't recive one I'm worried about not being able to do my college course, but I'm scared they will refuse because I'm too young.
