Building and Maintaining Intimate Relationships

All of us are familiar with the complexities involved in building and maintaining intimate relationships. We have each experienced the self-doubts and personal insecurities that can make meeting new people so difficult. We are also well aware that long-term, committed relationships face significant challenges.

The diagnosis of a chronic, unpredictable illness like MS often adds additional concerns: How will MS affect my closest relationships? When and how will I talk to others about my MS? Will others find me attractive and desirable? Will MS affect my sexual feelings and sexual responses? In this section learn more about the resources available to help answer your questions to these very important personal concerns.
