    Well hopefully you'll get lots of sleep tonight and feel lots more awake when you've had chance to rest properly. 

    Yes I'm happy to talk. Today I met someone who told me that they wouldn't employ someone if they had a disability because they would lose them money. He also went on to say how he doesn't think that people with disabilities should get reasonable adjustments at work. 

    It's made me sad because I quite liked the person and now I'm feeling like I was wrong about his character.

    Hi @MrsORB. So sad and annoying that people say that to a person with any disability. No doubt you have a lot to offer. I'm new to this forum and I've picked up a few ideas and links to read and maybe you may find it useful also. It's Saturday 19th and hope you day today has been good to you. Take care. Mike
