It’s important to remember that you aren’t alone when dealing with MS. You can find support in a variety of places. They can be friends or family, or they may be patient associations or online communities.
“If you are alone, things can seem more complicated to manage. Support can go beyond your neurologist, family and friends.” Jacobo
Building a network of people you can turn to for advice can help you to process information and overcome obstacles. The amount of support you want and where you go to find it is personal to you. It could be as simple as engaging with online communities...
“I use Twitter a lot as I can ask a question or whinge about something and have twenty replies within minutes. The support I’ve found has seen me through many difficult times. Remember, you are not alone.” Jacobo
...or you may want to become active with patient association groups in your area. The most important thing to remember is, support is out there if you need it.
