MS and my unemployment

Hello.

I was diagnosed with MS last August 2016. I kept it for my self at work. I was put in situation to disclose my disease at work to stay safe. Unluckily, I was not given the accommodation I needed to keep my position. I have been subject to disability separation.

    Hi marie66mm,

    I’m sorry to hear that you were forced to leave your job. It sounds as though it was not a choice that you made, I thought you might be interested in the collection of articles and information regarding reasonable accommodation at NMSS. An MS Navigator may also be able to answer your questions or to help you connect with help.

    Thanks for being here, we’re glad you’re part of the community, -Warmly, Donna (MultipleSclerosis.net team)
