I guess you’ll have to make the most of it. What is your ideal job, by the way?
Did you answer 'Yes' to 'Any disabilities?' I always do now.
I was wondering about whether I should now answer yes or no to that question. I want to answer yes, so I guess I should!
I answered 'No' on my employers' medical questionnaire - but they already know I'm on the spectrum, and I explained that I answered 'No' because I don't like to think of it so much as a disability as a 'different ability'. But that's a personal thing - and I'm confident that my employer (being an autism trust) will be understanding. But in any other circumstance, I will answer 'Yes' in future.
