    Hi @spikey :) I've just replied to your comment on the attitudes research thread. I'm really sorry to hear that you've faced these sorts of attitudes. They often come from a place of ignorance and misunderstanding, but I know that doesn't really make it any less painful to hear. 

    You've mentioned employers' attitudes, which I think is a really important issue. Are you struggling to secure suitable work at the moment?
