hi ,i have been diagnosed withP.P.M.S. for 6 years now, i accept at first it does seem terrible, but remember it is life changing, not life threatening, i am still working 4 days a week , but in a very different type of job, i now work in a call centre, where i am sitting down all the time. If just diagnosed you are probably not showing many symptons , so perhaps now is the time to realisticly look at the job you do now, will you be able to do it in the future ? if not now is the time to look around and find something you will be able to do. I would not still be working without the help of my very good employer a very good housing association who have put things inplace to help me. By my experience , if applying for a new job , dont mention M.S. , although in therory if you are disabled you can claim an automatic interview this dosent happen in practise, go for the interview , get the job and declare later down the line after 2 or 3 years and if you are lucky like me with a good employer they wont get rid of you whilst you can still do the job and by that time you wont want to carry on. REMEMBER IT IS LIFE CHANGING , andlearn to adapt, there are lots of advances being made all the time lets hope 2017 is the year for the big breakthorough in M.S.
