Yes my attorney said it was good to inform my employer. She told me it was the right thing to due. If I had to go back and do it all over again I would do it the same way I did. As my attorney has told me there are laws that are in existence for just this. The federal Americans with Disibilities Act as well as state Civil Rights Act. My employer was completely wrong in what they did. All they had to do was follow the law.
thanks for the reply gary.......did your attorney say it was good that you informed your employer? If you had to do it over again, would you do anything differently? How have you adapted to the meds? are those meds the ones you started on? any side effects?
I have adapted well to the meds. I started with the Requip and then started the Azilect about 6 months later. The one thing that I get affected with is fatigue. I do get tired about midday and I need to take about an hour rest (nap) and then I am able to reenergize for the rest of the day. The meds keep tremors under control, it is just when I am under stress then the tremors show.
Just remember no matter what you do those laws still protect you. Thats why they were enacted.
