With my MRI images and cognitive assessment report in hand, my neurologist explained how MS had compromised my cognitive and physical functions, leaving me disabled and unable to work. He explained that “chronic” meant “permanent” disabilities. The employment rug was yanked out from
under me and there would be no holding onto my career.
