This is probably a silly question, but I'm going to ask it anyway! I don't want to claim disability benefits, as there are plenty of you guys out there who need them more than me; plus, I have a job that pays me too well to consider it whilst I can still drag my bum out of bed every morning to get to it!
My question is, can you be categorised as having a disability, even under those circumstances? I guess I'm looking for some aspect of protection from the disability discrimination act, as my job is ever-changing, and there are certain things that I just can't do these days, despite the fact that I'm only 32. My boss is a stickler for rules, and if she can find a way out of making any allowances for my health issues, then she certainly will - she's already increased my workload against the advice of Occy Health because (and I quote) 'he only said he hoped it would continue, not that it had to'. This isn't a situation that I wanted to ever find myself in (as, I suspect, it is for most of us), but if there is a way to fight back a little, then I'd like to find it!
