I remember someone on here once mentioning that when filling in forms like medical questionaires for Occ health medicals they always say they have Fibro and class it as a disability. I gave this some though for a while then decided to stick my neck out and class myself as having a disability too. I was a bit nervous about doing it even though the forms say they aim to be an equal employer and encourage applications from disabled people. However, the result is that I now have two new HCSW 'bank' jobs with a hospice and the NHS and I only have to work core shifts not long days or nights! I'm so glad I took that advice otherwise I think I'd still be telling myself not to bother. Thanks everyone for all your input & advice making this community a great support network. Nwg x
