I’m relatively newly diagnosed. I am aged 32. I was diagnosed with MS last year. It started with my eyes going blurry. I was told by my optician to go to the eye hospital. That’s when they then sent me for an MRI. The results were confirmed. I had MS.
I didn’t tell my employer because the symptoms went away after 2 weeks.
I then had an episode after a year and I told my boss. My boss told her deputy that I had MS. This was done without my permission. My boss is great but her deputy is the office gossipmonger and I’m worried or rather unsure as to who knows.
I am so paranoid now, because whenever I pass people I don’t know what they are thinking and if they know. The deputy is also showing signs of hostility towards me.
I’ve tonight told my boss that i’m unhappy that she disclosed my illness without asking me for permission to do so.
Please can someone advise me on what I should do next?
