My Story 1 Appreciate this

I was a research scientist at a pharmaceutical company for 15 years after receiving my PhD in biochemistry. I was diagnosed with MS two years after I started working, so I was able to work for 13 years before my upper management recommended I take extended disability leave. I incorporated a business to facilitate technology transfer but after ten years had to dissolve it for financial reasons. My wife is wonderful! She continues to support and care for me.
