I put on here a few weeks ago that I had an Occupational Heath Appointment last week. I received the report yesterday (and again today after some amendments), and one of the things she's put on there, is in the workplace I now have to be considered Disabled, and covered by the Disabled Persons Equality Act as I have a lifelong condition that impacts upon my day to day living.
Can I ask, if anyone else has been registered disabled due to their PA? I have no issues with disability per se (my mother was a special needs teacher for 20 years so I'm more comfortable with people with disabilities than not it seems), so that doesn't bother me, but I don't really know how it will impact everything else, work, life, home etc. and what I can do to help myself.
My boss will receive the report on Monday I think and then it's up to them whether they aid me by letting me go part time to if they stop my probation now and get rid of me (although I think the equality act may cover me there). It's all just become so overwhelming. Just over 2 months ago, I had no diagnosis and no treatment and no disability. I was just a bit unwell. Since November, I've been diagnosed, had 2 treatments, had Occupational Health, and now have a disability. As you can imagine it's all getting a little too much now.
