Anqunette Jamison: MS made it hard to do my job, mind would play tricks on me: VIDEO

FOX 2 News Morning anchor Anqunette Jamison was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in  but says she was likely suffering symptoms for 10 years before that. Her mental and physical health have declined, making it hard to keep up with the everyday demands of being a TV news anchor.

"I thought that I could do a few more years at this job, but in February I suffered a relapse," she admits. She went on medical leave shortly after that before ultimately deciding to retire.

Q says her MS hasn't necessarily affected her mobility, but it's definitely affected her mind. She's especially noticed short-term memory loss.

"It's difficult to do this job when you're afraid you may forget what you're saying as you're saying it. Also, my mind plays tricks on me," she says. "I call people names and it's not their name. I called Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dr. Carson. I know the difference. So, it's strange because a lot of times you won't even know that you're making those types of mistakes."

She says her symptoms became so strong that she couldn't even be at work for 8 hours a day.

"At 10:30 in the morning, I would go home with a headache and a stomachache and I would get in bed, and that was my day. Every single day," she says.

Eventually, Q put her health first and went on medical leave in April 2016.
