My wife was diagnosed in 2005 with Multiple Sclerosis. Since then she has had to live it, and for this reason we have decided to give her perspective of how to live with Multiple Sclerosis. There are going to be both good and bad days associated with living with Multiple Sclerosis.
On the good days you’re able to move more freely and think more clearly. This is a joy for those that have to live with Multiple Sclerosis. These days are the days that there seems to be more of a hope that one day there may be a cure for this disease. These are also the days that people with Multiple Sclerosis want to be outdoors doing something whether that is working in the yard or running around town.
The good days are also the most enjoyable days that make you want to take a family vacation as they are able to be enjoyed more than on the days that are not so good. These days also allow you to see the future that you want to envision yourself having with your family, and loved ones.
The bad days which seem to come all too often are the ones that make you wish for the better days. These days cause you to have problems with your mobility, vision, cognitive thinking skills, strength, and balance. These are the days in which you envision that one day the medical world will come up with either a cure or at the very least a drug that can combat the Multiple Sclerosis while providing you with a great balance of good days.
Thankfully there are organizations out there that are able to help people with Multiple Sclerosis get the medications that they need. Two of the most prominent organizations out there are the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the Multiple Sclerosis Alliance. These are two organizations here in Colorado that is able to help people with Multiple Sclerosis.
The best way to live with Multiple Sclerosis is to have a strong network of people that can help you without making you feel helpless, and disabled at the same time. These people include friends, family, and medical providers. Family and friends need to be able to listen to their loved one suffering from Multiple Sclerosis in order to be able to identify when, where, and how they are able to provide support.
The medical staff needs to be open to dialogue in order to provide help beyond the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Many people that suffer from Multiple Sclerosis also tend to suffer from some form of depression as well. This is another symptom that needs to be addressed to help patients with Multiple Sclerosis enjoy the better days instead of having them feel depressed when they should be enjoying their good days.
Each state has a few good doctors that are able to address the medical needs of those with Multiple Sclerosis. Those doctors tend to specialize in treating Multiple Sclerosis. Here in Colorado one of the best doctors in treating Multiple Sclerosis is Dr. John Corboy out of Denver. Dr. Corboy works with the University Hospital in Denver. He has a trained staff of people that also know how to treat patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
Dr. Corboy also has associates that are also highly trained in treating patients with Multiple Sclerosis. Any of Dr. Corboy’s associates are also highly recommended in treating patients with Multiple Sclerosis. This is how my wife has been able to live with Multiple Sclerosis.
