Hello, I am hopefully going to complete a PGDE in a few years time for Primary education. It's not the course I am worried about but rather how I will deal with placements/work once I have graduated as I suffer from severe PCOS. This has been officially diagnosed since I was 15 or so, of which I first got diagnosed partially because of how much time I ended up missing from school. Over the years I have managed to reduce my symptoms slightly but during my period I have ended up having to miss at least 2-3 days off of school/work due to the sheer pain of the condition. I'm scared how this may affect me when working full-time, especially since I already know my current employer's (at a local corner shop part-time) opinions on it. And they're not nice ones. Has anyone else had to deal with this or something similar? And what would you suggest for future reference? Thank you all!
