How does MS Enhance Your Ability to Cope?
I’ve recently written an essay on my blog about advocacy and one here at Health Central about coping. Those two words are so significant to anyone living with a chronic illness, especially one as varied and unpredictable as Multiple Sclerosis. I’ve had MS for 21 years and counting, and have picked up a number of skills in both coping and advocacy. I’ve recently learned that my skills as an advocate helped my most cherished friend who is losing her battle with cancer. My ability to cope seemed useless in dealing with this iminent loss.
