Hoping to get some constructive opinions from the bright minds on this board. Right now I have a good job with one of the world's largest companies and therefore have a great benefits package including long-term disability. In otherwords, if I become disabled I will still receive my salary until retirement (I'm 33 now). I have an opportunity to go work for a privately held, smaller company which would be a lot more fun, lot more money, but I won't be able to get the LT disability insurance now because I have a pre-existing condition. Currently I am asymptomatic and have only had a total of 2 exasperations over 6 years but I realize most start off mild and that could change tomorrow.
Do I take the job and roll the dice that the pharmas will figure this out in the next few years and come up with a decent med that halts progression? Or do I play it safe and keep working for the man?
Thanks to any who respond
