Support and Resources for People with CIS
One of the most challenging aspects of being diagnosed with CIS is the uncertainty of whether the CIS will progress to MS. During the period of uncertainty, the extensive resources of the National MS Society are at your disposal: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/about-multiple-sclerosis/index.aspx is a good place to start to find information and resources. You may be interested in becoming familiar with the information contained on these pages whether you believe that your CIS will progress to MS or not.
Given the potential to become overwhelmed by thoughts of future challenges that may never materialize, a focus on the present moment may help you to deal with the anxiety that uncertainty may cause. Talking with one the Society’s MS Navigators (1-800-344-4867) or with a counselor or therapist may be helpful at this time.
