I am going through the unfortunate process of redundancy & consultation (as are thousands of others!). When I looked over the consultation papers, the statistics offered are 25% of employees are declared disabled. I know who I work with: I have RA & my friend has retinitis pigmentosa and is going blind. However, an additional two members of staff have cited themselves as disabled because they have dyslexia. I would LOVE to know how others feel about this! I personally can't believe how lucky they are getting to the loo on their own, or doing up buttons, but can say, 'I'm disabled'. I would love to have that sort of disability!
