otolorin posted a topic in Open ForumHi, anyone/everyone who has a physically demanding job with PD,please give your insights as regards how you are managIng to cope.on the job.My temporary disability insurance is running out,and I have not been assured of any type of accommodation on my job,when I informed my manager about my PD status.In fact,my boss doubted how I will be able to cope,while dealing with PD symptoms.I have not been fired either.I have always been a conscientious worker before my diagnosis.My other thought is switching to a less demanding job,but,that will mean a reduction in my income.Might consider switching career,but that would mean going back to school.And future cognitive decline is unpredictable.Please share your experiences,if any.How easy is it,applying for a new job/career,when you have PD?Do you have to inform your new employer about your PD status? I will appreciate your contributions.To some extent my symptoms are controlled by medication and exercise and don't want to retire early yet.
