MS

For People with MS, Wellness Is a Lifelong Journey

The term “wellness” is used a lot these days. Often, we hear people taking about improving their wellness by quitting smoking, joining a gym or dieting.

In fact, wellness is more than a short-term commitment to improving one’s health, it is a lifelong process of actively developing physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well being.

For people with multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic degenerative disease, this commitment to lifelong wellness is essential.

I've been diagnosed with MS. Now what do I do?

Learning that you have MS can be frightening. It’s a diagnosis that changes your life, and, as people with MS can attest, managing the symptoms of the disease can be frustrating and complex.

While everyone’s MS is unique, there are some similarities, and there are some lessons that can be shared.
