For many people, one of the most challenging aspects of living with MS is living with uncertainty. Living with unanswerable questions like, “Is today the day I experience a relapse?” “Will my disability worsen?” “Will I be able to continue working?” “Will I be able to take care of my family?”
These are all very real questions, and while there may not be answers for them today, there are steps you can take and strategies you can adopt to ensure that you're managing and minimizing the uncertainty of living with MS.
Joining me to talk about her journey as a mom living with MS and to share how she's learned to cope with the uncertainty of MS is MS advocate Sarah Wolfe. Also joining our conversation with specific strategies for living your best life despite the uncertainties of MS is Dr. Laura Hancock, a neuropsychologist at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
It's a big topic, and I'm devoting this entire MS Awareness Week episode of RealTalk MS to my conversation with Sarah Wolfe and Dr. Laura Hancock.
