Everybody remembers the day — sometimes, even the moment — when they were diagnosed with MS. And in that moment, you may not have known very much about living with MS, but you probably felt like everything was about to change.
One of the most common emotional responses to MS is grief. Joining me to talk about the relationship between grief and MS, as well as share some specific steps and strategies that you can take to process and manage grief in a healthy way is clinical psychologist Dr. Rosalind Kalb.
Dr. Kalb has specialized in MS care and education for almost 40 years. She's a past Vice-President of the Professional Resource Center at the National MS Society. And currently, Dr. Kalb is the Senior Programs Consultant for Can Do MS.
We'll also share the details of the experiments conducted by two German scientists that may shed important light on the process of myelin repair.
We'll tell you what a research team learned from the largest MS fatigue study ever conducted in the United Kingdom.
We'll highlight some of the changes to the updated guidelines for diagnosing and treating MS in the U.K.
And we'll share the results of an extension study of Kesimpta presented last week at the annual meeting of the European Academy of Neurology.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
