I posted a few weeks ago asking if my university could require me to see a specific doctor to get accomodations, extended time on exams, placement in a hall closer to my dept building, etc. i spent the last few weeks securing a letter from an ME specialist in the UK. However, in that time, my school has come back and said that they will accept my original letter (from an ND in my home country). My question is, how much discrimination can I expect if I disclose my ME/CFS diagnosis to the school? Does anyone have experience with this? Is it worth disclosing my diagnosis in order to be placed in a residence closer to my department? My original letter states my diagnosis as mitochondrial disease/dysfunction which I have tests to prove and asks that I be placed in a hall no more than 1 mile from my department building. However, now, I am struggling a lot with the distance and all my symptoms are getting worse. The new letter from the specialist lists my diagnosis as ME/CFS + mitochondrial dysfunction and asks for me to be placed as close as possible to the department. I am scared because of the extreme risks of exercising too much (that are potentially not reversible), however, I do not want the school to know I have ME because they could easily discriminate against me within the bounds of the law. For example, by saying things like "Oh sorry, all the accomodation is full" even though it is not. There is no way for me to prove that this is not true. If anyone has studied in the UK and has experience with this please let me know.
