    Am I disabled? Am I entitled to badge/benefits?? 6th Sep 07 at 10:20 AM
    I have been diagnose with arthritis in my foot eventually after 2years or 'nothing wrong' after an x-ray 18 months ago when it was clear that the bones in my foot have disintigrated. I was then put on the waiting list for surgery & have had 1 year of pain/discomfort. My operation wacurings this week with low chances of curing my foot, at best just an improvement, at worst it will be worse than before.

    I lost my job 2 months ago, mainly for not getting along with my supioriors, but maybe some resentment due to the time off I would be needing and the slight affect on my work.

    I am only 21, am now on crutches for 6 weeks+ and have had part of my toe removed so will need physio.

    Does this count as light disability? I am more interested in parking badge than benefits as I need to get to college and hopefully work (before my savings run out!) I can't drive for at least the 6weeks, and may have to get an automatic after that as I get pain using clutch (left foot)

    I aslo have a 20month old son and he will be starting nursery/playgroup soon.

    Sorry to witter on, just trying to include fact, any help would be great!
