I have been lucky – California in the latte 80’s to mid 90’s- employers bent over backwards in getting the right phones for two of us. Me in other offices. And I was an independent contractor. In Philadelphia in late 90’s Tomis 2000- forget it I could not even get a good chair.
Why I decided to work just as anAnimal care provider- critters are almost always on my side( cats are tough but I love it).
Olly helps on speech to text. Not 100 percent
Use that along with roger pen
Advocacy is not just for us. It’s helps paves the way. Penn care has learn a lot from me because I speak up. Pushing for non phone access for appointments and questions. They are awesome though .
I am working on Sociel security being more understanding of my limits as a single hearing impaired l cannot work in previous field and less as in animal care . Expenses are high for hearing costs etc . They reduced my payment to cover Medicare . It is tough. Waiting for appeal date
Life is hard- chocs. /Critters/ aids off when I can and books / wanderings. So great.
