Does anyone know if there has been any research on the salaries of people prior to diagnosis and at various times points after such as 1yr 2yr 5yr 10yr?
I personally am required to be the breadwinner in my family and yet I have relapse remitting MS. I previously lost the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink, I had 2 strokes, lost sight and hearing. Thankfully most of this came back, however a year later the same happened again.
I have had almost 2 years in 5 out of work for various reasons that stem from MS and zero support from the state due to previous financial circumstances and the government’s general non acceptance of MS affecting lives.
I have noticed my salary drop by over 2/3 and am really interested in speaking with people who have become financially secure or remained so since diagnosis. Personally it’s a helter skelter.
I am keen to hear of any research on this topic so that I can look into new ways to address the problem I face and I believe others must also face.
Note: unemployed again for last 3 months and if I don’t get help, we will lose everything.
