It can be difficult to hear the words “you have MS” for the first time. When you are newly diagnosed you will find that you have many questions about what this diagnosis means for you, and how it will impact your life and the lives of your loved ones. There are many challenges, but there are also many supportive options available to help you.
There are many ways to learn about MS. The chapter offers education programs and resources on the medical, social and psychological aspects of MS.
The Arkansas Office offers local self help groups to enhance the quality of life for people living with MS. Check with the local office for a support group near you, or one of our online or teleconference groups.
Wellness and Exercise
Take care of yourself physically and emotionally.
People who care for a loved one with MS may do so in many ways. If you are a caregiver, you may find some of these resources beneficial.
