I am currently diagnosed CIS, and a long frustrating journey to get a second opinion from the NHS where I have seemed to have fallen through the cracks (PALS are helping).
Anyway… I currently live in Manchester, I moved here alone about 5 years ago and have built up a good support system. In January and just before by CIS episode, I had got to a second interview stage with a company in Abu Dhabi for a job. It was all going very well, and I was looking forward to the new chapter as struggle with where I am in my life currently. Sadly with the attack and uncertainty with what was happening to me I had to pull out of the recruitment process.
Now I have almost recovered from the attack albeit with some minor ongoing symptoms I have seen the job re posted and another job I have waited years for. I am struggling with the reality of what this diagnosis means for me and my life and my limitations or whether it just an extra challenge I have to bare but still carry on with life and life plans.
My main concern about moving to the ME is having no support system, a harsh HR system, and new medical structures whether they may not know anything about MS.
