I have had ms for seven years and am still working full time. I am currently off work on sick leave due to the heat and some high stressful situations. Although I do not take off work sick much I always find it hard to explain or define my ms complications to my companies accident fund employees. Since many employees abuse the system. They sometimes do not take you seriously and think you just want time off work. I now have a hard time putting my thoughts into words. When writing it takes me a bit longer to organize words and sentences but when talking, I dont have the time to organize and can not get out what I need to say. I make outlines to prep for conversations. Can anyone think of words to explain the sometimes hidden diffaculties associated with msView Thread
