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 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.
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.
