How, when, and if to disclose your multiple sclerosis is a topic that has been coming up in our chat room, lately.

This is a tricky issue for the newly diagnosed as well as for long-time MSers who find themselves in a new environment with new people who don't know. Yet.

It’s time we focus on this important topic.

The Summer 2011 Momentum magazine (NMSS publication) has an article called “Disclosure how-to's from our Information Resource Center” with tips on disclosure issues in the workplace.  We'll discuss the information in that issue, information from other MS organizations, and hear from someone who recently successfully disclosed her illness to her son.   

Please come and share your own disclosure stories – the good and the bad. We can learn from each other's experiences and tips.

Note that the format for this chat is a little more structured than normal. 

Although targeted to the Delaware Area, these chats are open to anyone with an interest in multiple sclerosis.
