It seems like diabetes is considered a disability in America. I’d love to hear more about that, and how your school/workplace has had to adapt to acknowledge this.
In South Africa, things are less clear. I had to check the box for dabetes under the disability section of the application form, but a lot of funding opportunities and bursary schemes here do not see it as a disability. If it was acknowledged as a disability, I would be eligible for more money for special equipment (I could use it for test strips and insulin!) and be funded for a longer period of time. Oddly enough though, both dyslexia and epilepsy ARE classed as disabilities. Is it just me, or does that seem unfair?
