When you're living with MS, it can feel as though you're taking a few extra things with you when you go to work. For instance, if you haven't told your employer that you've been diagnosed with MS, you're taking along the extra burden of having to keep a secret. You might be trying your best to manage your MS symptoms on the job, dealing with things like fatigue, vision problems, and even physical balance. During the workday, all of these things -- these "extra burdens" -- get piled right on top of all the other work-related stresses that you face every day. It's a lot to have to carry. My guest is Dr. Lauren Strober, a Senior Research Scientist at the Center for Neuropsychology & Neuroscience Research and a staff neuropsychologist at the Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation. Among her research projects, Dr. Strober has taken a close look at how people living with MS cope with work-related stress. We'll also take you through the dangers of surprise billing, and explain how you could end up with thousands of dollars in medical expenses that you never saw coming. We'll tell you about a couple of outstanding FREE events that you'll want to attend. You'll find out about the MS Society of Canada's #MakeMSMatter campaign. And Peer Baneke, the CEO of the MS International Federation will walk us through the newly announced Patient-Reported Outcomes Initiative for MS. We have a lot to talk about!
