I've a great job with a company who are very helpful re my mod/severe COPD/asthma. I receive top rate mobility but no care aspect. My company have put me through 'reasonable adjustment' to be monitored on an annual basis. My job is largely sedentary but it is very pressured and in education; I am constantly hit with the colds and illnesses of both students and staff. Whilst at work I am largely able to do my job but my problem is in the amount of time I have off sick (and ongoing tiredness because of poor sleep with my breathing). I do feel that each year is more difficult but how does one go from employed to 'too unwell to work' without being penalised by the DSS? I am 52 so too young for official retirement and just can't seem to see a clear way forward. Any ideas?
