This special episode of RealTalk MS is sponsored by Celgene and the MS MindShift initiative, which aims to educate about the important role the brain plays in MS.
My guest is Ashley Ringstaff, who is a paid spokesperson for the MS MindShift. Ashley was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS at the age of 22. Many of us know that MS can be very unpredictable – never knowing what symptoms you'll have to deal with day-to-day. This can lead to frustration for many people living with the disease. Ashley doesn't let this frustration get in the way of living her life to the fullest, especially when it comes to being the mother of two boys.
We'll be discussing what it was like being diagnosed while caring for young children, and the different lifestyle choices that Ashley has adopted to keep herself stress and frustration-free throughout her MS journey. We'll also talk about the importance of brain health and share some tips on what people living with MS can do to keep their brain healthy.
