Dizzycast Ep. 3 A Disclosing Dizzy

This month me and Dizzy have been thinking about disclosing to other’s when you’re diagnosed with a chronic condition such as MS. 🙂

In this episode we chat to Jen and Robert about their views and opinions on telling others. 🙂 We’re also joined by Michael who talks to us about life with primary progression MS.

Don’t forget that you can also potter over to Dizzy’s Dotty Team page, where you can find out more about Michael, Jen and Robert 🙂

We really hope you enjoy this months episode. 🙂 xxx

    Love it!! I adore that intro jingle too. Interesting issues around medication. I did struggle with the sound a little at some points as voices seemed very quiet (around 23 mins) turned it right up though and was fine. Well done guys, you’ve shared some very personal, very important experiences 🙂

      Lol! I love that little jingle. Glad I’m not the only one, as I’m aware I let it run for a while…. 🙂
      And thank you for the comment about the sound. I’m still struggling abit with the technical side of it, but think I do finally understand why it is quieter. Hopefully! So should be sorted for the next one. 🙂
      Thanks for listening and commenting Caz, we really appreciate it. 🙂 xxx

    Thank you everyone for a very interesting podcast. I got a lot out of the “telling people” part. Like you I have had a bad experience at work and left a part time job to aid my well being.
    Shine Through is a rather uplifting song – a good reason for a wee dance around the kitchen! xx

    So, appreciating it.
    When I first became symptomatic, and I was on the job for close to 10 years, and I was a contractor – my line has always been “It’s not cancer, it’s not contagious, it’s not terminal and it doesn’t effect my brain.” Since the place was huge, people would run into me and say “OMG, OMG what happened to you?” My response “Oh, I’m just falling apart.” That job eventually used it as an excuse to let me go. Attorney said, only firm she had heard of taking away reasonable accomodation. I was also up in the air about declaring disability on applications. I have definitely lost jobs because of the perception

      Thank you for commenting. I’m sorry they used it as an excuse to let you go and actually took away reasonable accommodation. That’s awful. I really struggle with what to put on application forms. I do now usually tick the box on the equal opportunities form, but a lot of places now aswell send out a medical questionnaire. It is just another stress.
      Hope you’re doing ok. Sending Dizzy hugs. 🙂 xxx
