I am still working full time and driving safely. My voice is about 99% normal, I can type OK and my emotional liability is now under control with the wonders of modern medicine. I commute about 50 miles each way (with 'normal' Los Angeles traffic) and the drive is starting to be hard on my arms which are now starting to atrophy. My question is, what is the best way, what are the right things to say to my employer about my ALS DX? I am still 100% productive and want to keep working as long as I can; we need my salary and insurance. My wife would like to attend a meeting at my office with me and my management to 'plead for mercy'. Is that a good idea? I would like to propose to my boss that I officially work at home (telecommute) 2 days a week. Our company does not have an official policy about telecommuting. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
