Hi to you all.
I am 55 years old and up to the \"on set\" had always been healthy.I was diagnosed with WG in Feb07. When told my first remarks where \"what the heck is that\" (or words that express the same point!) I actually have a stammer so not only was I given an illness I could not spell-I could not say it either.
I went through and am still on the standard WG drug range. As with the described symptoms I had the whole thing, nose,eyes,lungs,kidneys etc. As luck has it my Kidneys recovered and my lungs regained some strength.
I still \"run out of steam\". I am deaf in one ear and have constant nose problems. However I always try to remain positive.
Have any of you returned to full time employment? have you told your employeer about WG?I had a very good well paid postion as a Project Manager but was pushed out due to the illness.
Anybody else had similar employment problems and has anybody had any dealings with the Works and Pension office?
In closing are we with WG considered disabled? I ask because the illness is so rare I feel WG is looked upon as a \"made up condition\" and is not considred serious as we all know it is.
Comments would be appreciated.
