This episode 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 Yvonne DeSousa, who is a paid spokesperson for the MS MindShift. Yvonne was diagnosed with MS in 2009. She quickly discovered that humor was able to help settle her fears and act as a release. Years later, Yvonne has continued using humor to not only improve her mood, but she's also worked to spread laughter and joy to the rest of the MS community through her blog and her book.
In this episode, Yvonne shares how she adopted a comedic outlook on MS and has been able to introduce different lifestyle choices into her everyday lifestyle to help maintain a healthy brain and a positive attitude. We're also discussing ways people living with MS can use laughter as a coping mechanism, along with shifting their focus towards brain health.
