    I have ptsd but it won't affect me as a daycare mum. Nor will my anxiety. It was never a factor for me doing childcare in a centre or from home.
    And yet you are making broad, sweeping comments about mental illnesses that you presume can be controlled. Would it be a factor for you if you openly declared your illnesses? I dare say it would be.

    I'm talking about people who have their condition under control. Or who have a condition that won't affect them at work.

    You can't possibly make that call.
    And I do not mean to offend but this is a dangerous attitude to have.

    As someone who has been recently diagnosed with PND and BPD, I have been advised by a specialist that there is no guarantee that I will ever have my mental illness under control (only managed) and that all I can do is take the meds diligently, report any changes and hope for a life close to normal.

    LMF did you see the other question? How would you feel about a daycare mum who had a pre-teen/teen child with autism or adhd or bipolar disorder?
    Never thought about it, Autism/ADHD are no big thing to me because my son has it so I understand it, I dont understand these others and just thought they were not controllable 100%

    Where are the broad sweeping comments? Where have I claimed to be the one to make that call. My cousin did fdc when she lived here. It was not a factor, and she did choose to disclose it to the scheme. She had the all clear from the relevant people. Now she is in her final year of a social work degree.

    My brother is a teacher. He is in high demand. Having bi polar disorder has not stopped him. He also teaches private swimming lessons and does private tutoring. It has not stopped him. He chose to disclose it to Cath Ed.

    So no, it does not in itself stop people from doing fdc. Maybe in other places it might, but not here.
