Possible income sources of MS Patients

  • By Amit

    Employers are not inclined to hire me because of my disability. I am unable to earn my living. They consider my being physically disabled will not let me do the desk job which involves no physical capabilities. Alas! Who am I to change their perception? I also realise that we have equal opportunity employers only for name-sake but none who can walk the talk.
    Considering this, what are the possible income sources of MS Patients when they are compelled to sit at home?

    Hi Amit. I’m so sorry to hear everything you’ve experienced. It’s very unfair people living with multiple sclerosis sometimes face this perception from employers. One our contributors wrote an article which includes resources for job hunting with MS: https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/help-for-the-disabled-looking-for-work/. Wishing you the best of luck job hunting. Keep us updated on how it goes. – Kelly, Community Moderator
