Hi everyone,

How are you doing? emoticon cute

Adjusting to life after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis can be challenging. It requires becoming more aware of the limitations that your body will experience and the lifestyle changes that these changes will force upon you. These adjustments my impact every aspect of everyday life; from basic mobility, to relationship dynamics with family and friends. The nuanced list goes on, but let's hear from you!

What is the most difficult or frustrating aspect of living with MS? How do you cope with this or these challenges? Is there anything you miss about your life pre-MS? Do you have any advice to share?

Feel free to share your thoughts and experience here! 

Take care,

I try not to think about the things I can no longer do and make modifications so I can keep doing some of the things I enjoy. An example is Photography. I can no longer climb hills or walk on uneven ground so I had to adapt how I shoot. I also had to give up photographing HS sports. BUT I consider myself fortunate that I'm still on the right side of the grass. I will not let MS drag down my mood. When it tries to, it's very brief.

@Bigkenny Hey, I've been where you are. accepting all of this is hard and crazy overwhelming. Your life isn't over, you just may need to adapt the way you do things. Do you have any friends or family you can lean on or talk to about it? Let them know how you're feeling and ask them to help you distract yourself or clear your head. When I'm having a bad day I talk to my kids or I try to throw myself into something I love to do. I'll go for a (slow) walk just to get some air and get out of my negative space or I'll watch a show or movie with my kids or grandkids. What often starts off as a temporary distraction actually does me a lot of good.
