What do you gyes work with?

hi

such a shame if you have to give up.

i used to have nice handwriting but not now. however i can manage a brush so i’ve taken up painting.

i am medically retired so not in the same situation as you.

don’t make any hasty decisions because with ms changing so often and because we have clever brains we often find a way round the difficulty.

good luck and try not to get too despondent

let us know how you get on

I agree with the others don’t make any rash decisions. I work in IT support. I now struggle to use a keyboard that is touch like an iPad as that doesn’t cause me so make issues. Also use voice recognition software. I found it so frustrating not being able to use a computer which is my passion as well as my career. Access to work helped me with finding alternatives. I don’t know about photography but I am sure there must become way to help with adaptations. I understand the concentration thing, I find that so frustrating but try and cope with it, it is not easy and there are times when I go and shed a few tears in the toilet at work when it has all become too much. Hang in there and see if you can find out if you can adapt things to make it easier for you to continue with your passion. Sorry I can’t advise where to go for this help. Try access to work or speak to your tutors for assistance. Barney
