MyCounterpane has reunited with Heather Leffel once again to ask an important question that is a challenging aspect of living with a chronic illness such as multiple sclerosis: employment.
Whether you had a career you loved or a part-time job that helped pay the bills, losing a job can have an immense effect on your wellbeing and lifestyle. This is true under regular circumstances, but especially true if you’re already living with a chronic illness that affects your life in so many other ways.
Therefore, we ask:
How has losing your job/work affected you?
Of course, losing work may not always have negative consequences – it may also be a blessing in disguise. Whatever the case may be, please use the form below to submit your experience with how losing a job has affected you.
