My daughter suffers from "made-up conditions", notably OCD and Trichotillomania (look it up). She is on anti-depressants, hasn't attended school for a year (bullying due to her appearance) and we take regular trips to the local A&E. As part of her management programme (there is no treatment) she uses various devices to distract her, including a spinner. Cadets is one of the few reasons she has for 'being'.
Shame on some of you for your bigoted and uninformed comments. Are you really to be trusted with youth? Teflon, in particular I find your attitude most distasteful; shall we weed out others on the basis of their admin burden? Perhaps we should start on the girls first, moving on to the Sikhs/Muslims as we have to order different uniform? Absolutely shocking.
