I’m new to this group. I’m looking for some insights into work and ms. I worked at a company for 15 years as a bookkeeper half day. I was at that job when I was diagnosed with ms and my then boss was honestly amazing. He was so encouraging and his relentless concern helped me through one of the toughest stage of my life.
Due to circumstances, he sold the company and I have subsequently been made redundant. I started a new job about 6 weeks ago. I asked my doctor to put me on Concerta to help me concentrate in the beginning. However I kept making careless errors. The work involved a lot of detail and the bosses were exceptionally demanding to the point that I was being called and whatsapped until 8:30 at night. I didn’t tell them about my ms as I never wanted to use it was an excuse and I’m not looking for anyone’s pity. I am a strongly independent person and hate asking for anything. I just wanted to put my head down and get the work done. With all the pressure I would sit there and feel like I was swimming. My brain just couldn’t remember everything I needed to remember but when I was away from the office, working from home my work was perfect. What I want to understand if stupid mistakes (concentrating) and memory problems are directly related to my ms. I managed fine at past job. I have left this second job and am now feeling so unbelievably scared to start looking again. I need to work financially. But what if i just can’t manage to think clearly anymore. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I don’t know if the pressure was causing me to kind of flip out and my brain would just switch off.
