  • One firm diagnosis of multiple sclerosis – this could take you a while to obtain, so be patient.

  • A liberal sprinkling of heavy-grade bullying at work, of the nastier  and more vicious variety.
  • For added panache, throw in an unfair dismissal along with a copy of the Disability Discrimination Act.
