I am involved in my health decisions

Absolutely. You need to be your own biggest advocate. Be willing to understand your disease. Understand alternatives. Understand what and how your body responds. MS is unique as it is not the same to each person. Give the time and effort to give your self the biggest chance of success.

How have you been doing?
I was reading an article about coping with the burden of living with a chronic condition, and I came across a piece of advice which consisted of sharing in the decision-making about your health, meaning that you should be included in all the decisions concerning your disease management, your treatments, your healthcare team, etc.
So I was wondering if you can say that you are part of the decision-making team in your case? Or are you feeling as if you have been left out and you have no control over the decisions that are being made concerning your own health?
Would you like the situation to change? How do you think you can change it?
Any thoughts you have on the subject are welcome!
