In Reply to: In late 40's with spactic cp --- tired of being a displaced employee posted by C. A. F. on September 04, 2000 at 15:18:43:

: I am 47. I was diagnosed with CP when I was 2. The severe spasms started in my 20's. Mornings are very difficult for me due to stiffness and the medications I am on. I am a programmer/analyst. My main problem at work is that I function slower than others both mentally and physically.
: I can only handle one person talking to me at one time, and it takes me time to formulate questions..
: I now use a 3 wheel scooter to conserve my energy to get through a work week. Last Monday 8/29/00 will be the 3rd time my position has been
: "eliminated" in 8 years. My employer will not give me the criteria they used as the basis to their displacement.
: Has any one else had this problem? It is not my job performance. It is getting harder as I get older to find a job. Has anyone else encountered this?
: I am going to be talking to a lawyer. I feel strongly it is discrimination, but proving it is another thing. Does anyone have thoughts for me on this? I am not a quitter. I do believe that things happen for a reason.
: I have been fighting and proving myself all my life, sometimes it gets old.
: I would appreciate thoughts and experiences that might help me.
: Thanks... a once again downsized person with CP.
:
