Good morning. I’ve been in the process for 3.5 years for a IC position.
I have a couple of things in the last two weeks that have come up. I was recently diagnosed with MS. I have a condition that I was put on steroids for before I start MS treatment. During the stretch of steroids treatment, I ran into a day at work where I let some language (bi*-h) slip over a phone call that a client heard, though it was indirect. I received a warning for this, as my employer recognized that this kind of action on my part “just isn’t me.” I found out the hard way that roids make folks act really weird.
Anyways, I’ve been trying to get in touch with my PoC to inform them of my medical status. This warning event happened a week after I was diagnosed. I’ll keep trying to get in touch with them, but I wanted to see what people thought. Are these things that require self reporting this far into my process? This is a first time offense for something like this and I’ve never been in a clearance process before. I’m still employed and just going about my daily business. I feel much better now that the steroids stuff is done.
And lastly, to anyone out there with MS, stay strong! Thanks everyone.
