    I had the same issue. All I can say is be honest or look into entrepreneurship if you are struggling to be hired.

    Hi @Rhirhi ;

    Been there went through years of disability discrimination in the work place, and hte employer closed our local branch to make me redundant, (all the other staff were transferred to other branches, since then I have never even had an interview for any of the thousands of job applications i have made.
    I was told by the local work coach that i would never get a job due to the nature of my complex communication disability, employers not being willing to make the required accommodations, such is the corrupt nature of many in our society.
    Hopefully you will find some type of practical solution..

    Have a look at working freelance or for yourself. What are your skills and abilities? Consider all options. Perhaps you can do a course or something that would improve your chances of finding work? Keep us updated. Best wishes!
