So I'm back off my holiday and back to pain
Had a meeting at college the other day with went well, and asked for another interview as my last interview for level 3 was in a carridor outside the library at break time. (Unsuitable for someone who has a hearing impairedment like myself).
So I went for another interview at the college I took with me my friend and support Rebecca from "Action on Hearing Loss" where I also do my voluntary work and Yvette her interpreter. So I went into the interview with a positive attitude, the lady was rather rude (to put it politely) said that there was only on file about my FMA, and more or less called me a liar, I however still have the emails I sent a member of staff (who no longer works at the college), stating I was going to be late or was unable to come into college due to a flare up and mentioned fibromyalgia. I did explain that I offered to get a doctors letter to prove I have FMA and was refused once I said it would cost. The main reason for not accepting me onto level 3 is because of my attendance I explained that was due to my fibromyalgia, and then I got it isn't noted I felt like saying are you calling me a liar?!
It doesn't look like I will be allowed to do my level 3 of health and social care. But what I will be looking into is Disability Discrimination on the colleges side of things.
I have noticed tonight after going out for a meal with friends that my lower back, spine and hip has been causing me pain after sitting on rather hard chairs.
Could someone give me advice on what to do please?!
