ChristieAnn67 - I looked up the New York State's DMV form to apply for the permit and don't see UC listed on it. This is the one I viewed.

could it be NYS doesn't include UC as a disability?

While I'm still unsure If I would apply for it, it sure would come in handy in emergency situations when seconds count in a huge mall parking lot:)

I think having one would ease a lot of fears that I have about not being able to get into the store (bathroom) fast enough. As others have stated, I wouldn't use it if I was feeling good. When I'm feeling good, and it's a nice day, I'll purposely park farther away.

The urgency and fatigue are big deals. The other day I had to go into the pharmacy to pick up my Es and I was SO tired that I parked in the "parents with children" parking spot. I really didn't care what anyone thought. I knew I wasn't going to be long and if someone asked, I was in such a mood that a "bloody D" line would have come out of my mouth.

I'm very glad to hear that your GI was the instigator! Bravo for him for standing up for his patients.

Good topic.... I would bet most of us would notice that as we get closer to our destinations, the urge gets worse! Parking closer would sure help.
