Hi guys just wanted to get some comments from people who may understand the situation better.
Basically I'm getting a lot of grief from my employers because I decided to use my phone to record a meeting without first getting permission and notifying all participants.
My MS is in the very early stages and I don't want to declare it to everyone. I've found at meetings that I sometimes tune out or find it difficult to recall exactly what was discussed. Always being exhausted doesn't help and I'm afraid of missing anything.
I looked up cognitive issues on the MS web site and it suggested using a dictaphone. I also looked up the legal side of it and as long as it is for personal use and not shared then it is legal but my employers have told me it is "offensive to record covertly" and "not normal behaviour".
They want me to apologise to everyone who was at the meeting I recorded and I've refused because that would be like admitting I've done something wrong which I don't think I have.
They are now warning me that I could be liable to disciplinary action.
I feel that I'm using a device to help with my disability the same as a walking stick.
Whether you agree or disagree I'd appreciate your point of view.
