Coping with MS
Many MS sufferers find it hard to cope with the fact that
they have got the neurological disorder. Typical
reactions to finding out that one is a sufferer are depression, stress, low
self-esteem and as a result, a change in sleeping pattern.
People automatically assume that life will change drastically but depending upon the severity of the disease, life can still continue as normal.
Sufferers can still continue with work.
The severity of the disorder can influence the type of work one can cope
with but the majority of people can continue as normal.
It is found that people with the disorder do suffer from fatigue;
therefore it may be necessary to work part time hours.
