The Reality of Depression, Anxiety, and Emotional Symptoms of MS
Many people who have MS experience not only physical symptoms like spasticity, pain, and weakness, but also emotional symptoms like depression and anxiety. Unfortunately there is a stigma associated with mental health in general, which can make it even more challenging for people to seek treatment. So I wanted to share my personal story in hopes that it may help others in the MS community.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. We want to check in. How are you feeling?
