Case Study 1
My health issue is that I have recently been diagnosed with epilepsy. From time to time I have seizures in my sleep. The effect leaves me dazed and confused.
My department has been supportive of me, realising there are days when I cannot come into work and times when I arrive later than the normal start of my shift. Knowing that co-workers and managers understand my health issue makes a big difference to reducing the anxieties that could otherwise occur. I very much enjoy my job and being able to continue at work gives me great peace of mind, a structure to my day and a much needed income!
