I've had eplipsy now for 8x months has a result of a brain haomorrage, the medication is managing my seizures and I've not had one since October.
I've been out of employment due to the whole thing and feel better now to return to work, I'm not going to lie, I've never felt so much discrimination in all my life, who knew that people pre judged your CV, and when they ask about why I've had this amount of time off and I explain about my brain haemorrhage and eplipsy, eye brows are raised and then I'm "unsuccessful" in the process.
I recently applied with the NHS and I've had the same thing happen, even though I researched and was aware of thier "disability interview scheme" which complies with the "equality act", I met all requirements and qualifications but was told I was unsuccessful.
I feel I've been discriminated against, but has I'm coming to terms with this whole thing, I don't know what I should do next?,
No seizures in 5 months and more then able to work, but it seems employers don't want to know and I'm now having to face the thought of claiming benefits just to survive, I'm to proud to live of the state, but I'm confused of what the next step is? Anyone else facing the same problems or any advice would be grateful?
