MS doesn't have to change your values,
your love for family and friends, your outlook,
or the passion you bring to life.
Don't forget life's simple pleasures. In addition to disease education and finding an effective treatment, you may find that inspiration is also very important. Remember to look for things that bring you joy. Following diagnosis, simple day-to-day pleasures may help you face new challenges.
Still, it may not be easy. The emotions and uncertainty you may feel at learning you have a chronic disease—or at having to try a new therapy—are not easy to prepare for.
By reading through this section, you are taking an important first step toward learning about MS and an available treatment option. Together, you and your health care provider (HCP) will decide what treatment option best suits you.
