I was a young onsetter aged 38 yrs old upon diagnosis. Im female.
I continued on working for until aged 50 yrs and my job was a very male dominated
I had to take my employer to 2 industrial tribunals but they pulled out each time.
In the end I asked for one result and that was that they left me to work until I decided I wanted to leave.
However they had the ability to retire me when I had worked my full service but I retired just prior to my official retirement date.
I wasn't going to have anyone tell me I couldn't work just because I was diagnosed with a disability.
I actually left with 4 commendations for outstanding work .
