Can I ask about the nature of your mental disability, just for the sake of curiosity really? Your condition doesn't seem to affecting you academically I would've thought you would do well in the job market, unless it's social anxiety related maybe.
Thanks Befuddled, i would be happy to say that i don't have one. But i have spent over three years altogether in acute psychiatric wards, the last two which were all together five years ago. i literally started uni on day release from an open hospital.
Plus this degree has been difficult, given my condition. I have had to see a support worker at uni, and a community senior nurse, at home, every week each for an hour, for the last five years as well, so i have had support as well.
I would like to think that i can get a job, and on paper it would seem that i can. But I know that there is a definite stigma attached to people like me, as well as a criminal record, which also could be a problem as well.
I am physically quite week, and prone to singlemindedness, which could also be a problem. I'm not saying that i can't get a job, but just that being 35, and having as the best things on my cv, the fact that i was awarded the visas for my wife and step daughter in 2013, doesn't look good, to employers does it?
