I hope its okay that I share my story, another sad story that’s all ye need!
But any advice
would be gratefully appreciated.
My world fell apart in the last year. I know very “melodramatic” given what everyone has gone through on this website.
Last year at 30 years of age
, I was diagnosed with Early Onset PD
In my heart I knew it before the final diagnosis but I still both shocked and devastated. Six months later my already failing very long term relationship ended
, I took it very badly. I felt like I saying goodbye to more than him but also to a chance of a normal life.
Now six months later again, my office job is in jeopardy
as I’m making mistakes unrelated to PD but nonetheless the stress has been extremely difficult. I’m wondering should I tell my boss about my new disability although he may not want me regardless and I don’t want to play the pity card. Feels like its just knock after knock and somethings goto to give.
In truth, I’m finding a five day week exhausting. But the thought of losing my job is the last straw, a farewell to my independence and purpose to my day. When I say this, I do NOT want to offend anyone, I’m speaking from how I feel at this moment in time and my moods change like the wind.
But I question am I wasting my time being so stressed and unhappy
in this high pressured job when I should be making the most of my time before my PD progresses even further. Daft question, just wondering is there any jobs
suited to PD?
Sorry just looking for a bit of hope and guidance.
Thanks for reading this far
