Tips for Living Well With Multiple Sclerosis

Make the most of every day despite MS.
(continued)

6 Super Tips in the Overcoming Obstacles Game

  1. Like this game, MS can throw a lot of obstacles in your path. A positive outlook can help. While looking on the bright side won’t cure your MS symptoms, it can lower your stress and help you feel better. 
  2. Ever stood on the curb and helped guide a stranger into a tight parking spot? A second set of eyes can really help. MS can be like that too. Don’t be shy about letting friends, family, and others give you a hand when you need it.
  3. This game is full of obstacles, and sometimes living with MS can seem that way too. But you can get around obstacles -- like a dipping sex drive or wobbly balance -- with lots of emotional, physical, and medical support. 
  4. As we get better at a game, we adapt the way we play it. Similarly, living with MS may mean adapting the way we exercise, work, or socialize. Being willing to make these changes can really keep the quality of life high. 
  5. The rules of a game help you win it. And making full use of resources like vocational rehab and your health care team can help you win in your day-to-day management of MS. 
  6. Like the obstacles in this game, MS can really get in the way sometimes. Fortunately, making small changes can have a big impact, whether it’s using a cane for those wobbly days or just letting someone else do the chores.
