Understand Stephanie’s Story from the Inside-Out

When I received my diagnosis of relapsing MS, I felt angry and distressed and not sure about my future or what this would mean.

I became blind in one eye, walking with a walking stick and I had lost the ability to write with my right hand. I wanted to teach German for the government but wasn’t allowed to because I have MS. I seriously hope that my experience can inspire other employers to hire more people with a chronic condition.

Even though I was diagnosed with MS, I was determined to have another baby. After working closely with my doctor, I recently had my daughter and, just as when I had my son, I have a social and family network to help me when I need it.
