So, after 9 years with the same company I have now accepted a really exciting new role at a different company. Many reasons behind but a big one is my health has massively improved since being on T3 (at first a combo and now solely) since August/Sept 2014.
I'm filling out a new starter form for HR and there is a page on disability. It states:
"There may be legislation in your country which protects disabled people. A person is defined as disabled if they have a physical or mental impairment with long term (i.e. lasting or expected to last at least 12 months), substantial effects on ability to perform day to day activities." Examples include mental and physical disabilities and:
*Long-standing illness or health condition such as cancer, HIV, diabetes, chronic heart disease, or epilepsy*
How do we answer this? When I first became ill it affected every aspect of my life and job. When I flared up or was under medicated I was a mess. I feel well now but I know this disease can rear its ugly head whenever it wants
So, would you say yes? Has anyone said yes? Is it good to keep a record so if there is a flare I'm a little more protected?
Two questions in one day. Hope everyone is having a good one! xx
