In the United States, more than a third of a million people are living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Much has already been discovered about this disease, and research continues to offer new treatments and better management, which means a better quality of life for people with MS.
Living with MS is a challenge, but it's a challenge that can be met. Keeping yourself well, both emotionally and physically, is the key. How and what you do for yourself ~ how you take control ~ will play a big part.
Learning as much as you can is the best way to address your concerns and prepare to work with the health professionals involved in your care.
Through its chapters, the National MS Society offers counseling, education, social and recreational activities, information and referral, equipment assistance, and more.
The Society publishes many pamphlets and articles about various aspects of MS. To ask for these or for other information, contact the chapter nearest you or call the National MS Society at 1-800-FIGHT-MS [1-800-344-4867]
