I'm another one with HS. I try my best to keep away from doctors and procedures to the HS as I don't want this condition dominating my life.
I work full time in an office job and this is great as I dont need to move too much so when I have a flare up is not a massive issue, however, I use public transport (bus) to comute to work and back and lately I've been having a lot of boils on my inner tight area and when they are active I struggle to walk to the bus stop and to work.
What happens is that I've been getting late to work when I have these flare ups on my inner tight due to pure mobility issue, what I normally would take 10 min to walk takes me more than double depending on how aggressive is the flare up and pain. I'm afraid lateness events could affect my job or even make me lose my job in a near future as every time I'm late they make me fill in a lateness form and it goes on my file.
I do have a car sat at home on my parking space and I only dont drive to work because I dont have a granted parking space at my work's building and parking on nearby car parks would be very expensive for me as I spend £2.90 daily for commuting by bus where as to drive and park my car nearby would cost me £6 daily so is out my budget.
I work full time and I've never claimed benefits to my condition, but I feel that it would be of a great help if I could have a disability badge for my car so I could drive to work and park on the street in front of my workplace's building, ceasing my struggle and pain to walk and the late events.
Has anyone here have the disability badge for car parking due to HS? How did you get it? Was easy or a nightmare? How could I try to get one to help me to keep employed? Any ideas/suggestions is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
