Everyone here knows how MS can effect a life, a person and a home. My husband has shown to have progressing MS, and though it is still relapsing/remitting, it is starting to show signs that it could be much worse if not handled properly.
I have been desperately trying to get a letter from his neurologists saying he is disabled, so he can get on disability and focus on his health, until then I am working two jobs.
I have not received any letter, phone call or confirmation that they even received my request. For more than 6 months we have been waiting, and when we failed to get him disability the first time, the hospital told the disability folks that he has MS…that is all. Something they already clearly knew from his medical records.
I have started a petition to try to urge the hospital to produce a letter explaining him as permanently disabled. If he is forced to work, when he has clearly worsened, his MS will progress and I am scared he will die too soon.
Please sign this petition to help my husband, explain why it’s important. The government doesn’t see MS the way we do.
