People with multiple sclerosis may find that the physical, psychological and spiritual challenges of living with the disease can be overwhelming. However, many people living with MS have learned that practicing behaviors that promote resilience is the secret to not just coping with the disease, but thriving with it. Resilience helps create a mindset of growth and opportunities, of seeing obstacles as challenges rather than threats.
Some people have a natural tendency to be resilient—it’s part of their makeup to be optimistic and to look for solutions to problems. But even if that’s not the case for you, strategies to build resilience can be learned and practiced.
In collaboration with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Jessica Craddock, MD will lead a discussion on building resilience and answer questions regarding MS and MS treatment options afterward at an informational open house at the Providence Multiple Sclerosis Center, located on the Holy Family Hospital campus.
