I was diagnosed with copd in 2008 and it is now at a moderate stage.
I will be 59 in May. I have worked full time at my company for 5 years.
There is now a restructure at work and my teams work is going to be moved into other teams workloads, and I may have to re-apply for these roles.
I get very tired now during the week, and breathlessness is at its worst early mornings on waking. I also have bad leg circulation. I enjoy working but I am worried that if I get one of these new roles they will now come with extra responsibilities targets and deadlines, and my anxiety will may increase under more pressure.
The restructure consultations have invited applications for either voluntary redundancy, shorter working hours or job share. My employers do not know I have Copd. Do I tell them or say nothing?
