Hello everyone,

Have M.S. since 1994 and work in sales/design in ceramic tile. I am experiencing more ofter the loss of thought and memory. Knowing something very well and suddenly my mind goes blank and cannot remember. Forget trying to multi-task that does not work. It is scary when you are working with a client and I try to work around it hoping no one notices. I am on S.S.D.I. but being single I have to try to work to pay bills. My co worker knows of my M.S. but gets annoyed with me and says things like I already told you that! That just stresses me more. Any suggestions? I want to find another job but feel like I am in a box.
Thank you,
Terry

Ireneliz,

My doctor told me to go and apply for S.S.D.I. she also gave me phone number of Attorney. I called attorney and applied through that way. It only took 6 months and I was approved. I know there were several factors regarding including disability, M.S. and had hip replacement surgery, my age, lack of experience so on.
Did you talk to attorney or apply on your own?
