My name is Ennio. I’m on my employer’s disability insurance. I have recently passed the 2 year own occupation period. I went on disability in Oct. 2014 for major depression and anxiety, now i have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have pain, stiffness,numbness and burning through my body all day long. Regular daily activities are difficult for me to do.
I have been hospitalized in psychiatric ward for 8 months, with medication and finally 17 electro shocks , I was doing better to be able to leave hospital. They offered me maintenance electro shocks,but I refused them. I couldn’t take them anymore, they are very heavy on the body, very invasive , they affect your memory, concentration and vision. My memory is still not back.The benefits of the electro shocks helped me for 10 days, then I started slipping.
Can I be forced to take more electro shocks even after we saw that benefits don’t last and,
Can my employer fire me during all this
Thank you for your time.
