Life Ibnterrupted, It's Not All about Me continues to interest readers around the world.

Best selling author, Dr. Beth Erickson says:

"Recently, I interviewed Chris Tatevosian on my radio show, "Relationships 101" on He gave an excellent interview about how his degenerative illness (Multiple Sclerosis) has impacted himself and his marriages. Too often, the impact of a chronic physical condition is discussed only from the patient's vantage point. However, Chris is willing and able to share with listeners the mistakes he made in his first marriage when he overlooked his wife's needs and feelings, focusing only on his own. His candor and willingness to be vulnerable so that others can learn from his mistakes is inspirational and educational. His heart is as big as the sky, and that comes through and carries the day for his entire life now. Although he is legally blind and lives in a wheel chair, it could be said that his mantra is, 'It could be so much worse.' He is a wonderful guest for any media who are willing to look at serious topics such as managing a life-threatening illness with grace." I recommend visiting Chris' site: of I know you will enjoy.

Disability and Job Discrimination

Now That's Improvement, NOT!

More than seventeen years after Multiple Sclerosis forced me from the workforce, the most efficient, prosperous and profitable economy on the planet, it pains me to learn that record numbers allege disability discrimination on the job.

During the late 1980's with the establishment and implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I was living and working during an exciting time. A moment in time punctuated with this law promising and providing protection against job discrimmination and job security for the disabeled employees working within our great country.

Yet, today I read an article written January 7, 2010 by Michelle Diament in disabilityscoop A premier Source of Developmental Disability News entitled Record Numbers Allege Disability Discrimination on The Job.

The article reported allegations of workplace discrimination based on disability rose to the highest level ever last year. Of the more than 21,000 cases reported 20%, still a lofty number were legitimate. As to why there were so many, 80% false discrimination claims filed, I offer this theory__ because the economy is so bad and so many people have lost, are losing and are afraid of losing there jobs people may be filing false claims hoping for a financial award. resulting an explantion to which was also hinted upon within the aforementioned article in January which stated, the reason is unclear but may be due to the economy, changes in the workforce or better awareness, stated Equal Employment Opportunity Commission officials.
