Good Morning, Just registered and yes, I was a firefighter/paramedic in Orange County, Florida for 18 years and Lake County, Florida for 2 years. Had to retire last August with my diagnosis of severe, aggressive RRMS. Angie Robertson

I know this post is on the older side... and I don't know if anyone is even following it anymore..but I am also a firefighter with MS. I am also currently looking for any firefighters who are active on their department. I am wondering how their department treated their DX.
I am still "in the closet" about mine for now because I don't know how they'd handle it.. whether with open arms or if the only see the "stigma" attached to it.
Career firefighter/medic here. On the job 15 years. Found out last August that I have MS. the city I work for has so far been very helpful and welcomes me back with open arms. I was off for 2 months when they found out exactly what it was. The officers have been very helpful. The guys on shift with me have even just like they were before. It's been a great experience SO FAR. If I can be of any help please let me know. Josh
