Hi haven’t been on the forum for a while - not great at these things ... I was diagnosed type 1 four and a half years ago, and since then my employer has just never been able to understand why I need to go to appointments. I usually either have to use up all of my holiday time (surely this is bordering on discriminatory) or make the time up. I’ve been through it so many times that I know that it’s not quite DDA worthy as Diabetes isn’t serious enough to warrant some sort of support The other issue is that when I get ill with it really floors me. Ive tried explaining this to them but it’s coming down to a ‘computer says no’ scenario... So I’ve been subject to a ‘stage 1’ warning due to having more than 3 absences in a 12 month period since last July. Having had a day off in August, September and just yesterday I’m now about to have a ‘stage 2’ interview. This is really getting me down now...it feels like an attack that I just cannot defend against.
