Polina, it might be interesting, here on the patient support portal it is well described how to live with multiple sclerosis

I have read the entire section almost.

In general, try to abstract yourself from your problem , try to continue to live a full life, find like-minded people, eat right, play sports, maintain a good microclimate with family and friends. the main thing is emotions and no nerves. It will turn out to be done over time, the main thing is not to give up

A psychologist helped me a lot. You need to adjust yourself normally and move on. Without the proper attitude, help and support of loved ones, it is quite difficult. But first of all, you need to look for strength in yourself.

Yes, I know. I've been living with him for 16 years. Sports, diet, work like everyone else. MS is not a sentence. Has given birth to a child of 14 years already. I take care of my nerves, I read a lot, I drink medicine. My life is no different from my old ...

A spark in the eyes, willpower, abstain, blah blah blah. What funny answers. As if the will is a mythical something NOT related to the physiology of the body. Comrades, who is trying to philosophize here, when the author needs real help, go to ** y.

Polina, any of your psychological state now is NORMAL! The desire to die, the loss of the meaning of existence, apathy, weakness ... All this, in one way or another, is associated with the disease. And it is caused not only by physiology (damage to the brain and nervous system), but also the knowledge that you are sick and that you can forget about a normal life (after 15-20 years, and in some forms of MS - after 10 years) would not write any nonsense in motivating articles or local commentators.

Cope alone is not realistic. I understand that now there can be a complete ass with money, but try to find at least a little for two things: vitamins and therapy with a psychologist. Vitamins: A, D, K, C and the whole group B. Pay special attention to vitamin B6 and magnesium. This is the basis for the treatment of neuropathies and diseases of the nervous system (Google will tell you more about it). Be sure to read the instructions.

A psychologist can also be a state one. Don't underestimate them. So you will save a lot of money, which, ATTENTION, should be spent on the "taste of life". I hope you have someone to rely on. If so, agree, hammer in work and other social game and start traveling (even to neighboring cities). Look for something interesting to you in ordinary things, try hitchhiking, walking in the rain, taking pictures, blogging, start helping other people and thinking about someone else besides you and your loved ones (this is what saved people in concentration camps, read or watch something about Viktor Frankl, you will find a lot of new things) ...

You shouldn't drink alcohol (or smoke), drink antidepressants, get distracted (distracted), go somewhere (I think which will be better). The disease will catch up with you everywhere. All you have to do is learn to live anew (the way you are now).

But what is worth doing is to believe or hope that research on myelin regeneration will help prolong a full life, at least for another for 10-20 years. Or the study of B-lymphocytes in the intestine will be successful. Etc. Read the articles of the WHO and the Russian Academy of Sciences, journals (such as: Journal of Neurology and Psychiatry named after S.S.Korsakov) - to understand that you are not alone in the whole world. There are a lot of us and a solution to the problem is being sought EVERY DAY!

Also, search for support groups in social networks!

21 is the beginning of life! Diagnoses vary. More important is the sparkle in the eyes and the desire to live, to learn and try everything that is not known. You are not alone. There is a family, close ones. Everyone loves very much and thinks of their life only next to you. In spite of all difficulties, it is worth seeing the sun, the sky and feeling the joy of life. The inner attitude determines everything! When the mood is positive, all ailments go away, diseases recede. A person is able to cure himself with optimistic thoughts. Even if their presence requires willpower. You will succeed! That's for sure! Happiness is waiting only for you to believe that it is it - your destiny.
