(I used to have an account on shift.ms connected to my facebook but it won’t let me log in this way anymore- is anyone else having that problem??)
I came on here to 1. rant and 2. get advice.
I was diagnosed last year with MS after a bout of numbness from my chest down. Once this went away after a month or two I I haven’t experienced any symptoms other than fatigue and restless legs. I’m doing pretty well and i’m very grateful for that.
It has always been a dream of mine to work in Canada after graduation with my boyfriend. I am currently on my work placement year in but will graduate summer 2019 in the UK. I have recently researched whether or not my MS will affect me getting a work visa. I have heard that I will only be allowed to bring 90 days worth of medication (tecfidera) with me to Canada if I do manage to get a work visa. And tecfidera has an annual cost of $25K whereas the allowance for foreign workers is around $6K- or this is what I gathered from the message boards.
Surely there must be a way around this for just one year abroad??? I am absolutely heartbroken and feel like until now, I have been able to deal with every hurdle MS has given me but this is just too much to accept. I have moved from Ireland to London this year with no qualms and have no doubt I would be as good a worker as anyone else in Canada. The question is just about whether or not I’ll be medicated there…
Any advice or experiences welcome! Let me know 🙂
