How can a calendar help treat multiple sclerosis's effect on the brain?

ANSWER

Use the calendar on your computer or cell phone to keep track of your schedule. Set it to send you reminders a few days or hours before a birthday, meeting, or other event.

If you're not a big fan of technology, write important dates on an old-fashioned paper calendar.
