[IPu] Trying HEROC ?

Hi All,

IAfter much reading of the Disability Discrimination Act, I couldn't work out
where we "fit in" as an exclusion to some Govt Services ie.NDSS.  (I'm not
saying we don't, but that I can't locate it).  I read the summaries of the
cases that HEROC conciliated and those they rejected under the Disability
Discrimination Act ... couldn't find anything even similar.

So ........ I emailed HEROC today asking them for the particular parts of the
legislation ???
And quoted them Tori's NDSS aims.  Then explained our situation re:syringes.
I then added details about how I believe a Pump has actually "saved" the
Government money.

- Saved them the cost of a Pancreas Transplant (and ongoing Anti rejection
- reduced Specialist visits (from 3 weekly to 3 times a year).
- well enough to return to work last year.  Then return to study this year
(this makes me a "productive" member of society, ....  right) ???

They have a three day turn around for enquiries.  Update you next week.
