    Our eldest is an unstablised epileptic, and aged 17 & in school. Amazing how many stools we fall between as he's not a child nor an adult!

    Also, read this thread from start to finish & learned So Much - thank you all who've posted.

    We're already in the process of getting a disabled buspass for him.
    If we can sort a disabled railcard for him, then he can begin to get around as freely as his public transport using agemates.

    Sorry but you really missed what they were saying, that was NOT what they meant at all.

    I'll try and explain - they were saying that people COULD PRETEND to have a bad back and get free stuff. They could have said leg instead of back, or anything else, they were not picking on people with chronic back pain. Sadly there are many people out there who fake illness or disability to get things for free - benefits, free entry, a blue badge etc. We all know this, and although some get found out too many just sail through life taking what they can but not entitled to.

    I have a chronic long term health condition but don't consider myself disabled, I struggle with my mobility and am in a lot of pain, but I don't claim anything, I have disabled children though, one is autistic, non-verbal and uses a wheelchair and we have to feed him, change him and everything else, I claim everything I can for him and his older brother.

    I don't like the name of the thread either, and I don't like fakers or those who claim what they shouldnt, but the poster certainly didn't offend me or my children and nobody wih a genuine health condition should have been offended either unless they were faking their condition.
