I’m a pessimist.
I’m one of those who have a glass half empty. But my relatives, friends and husband help me. I can always call someone to cry and they will always cheer me up. If you feel discouraged constantly, then you can not leave the house at all. Due to the fact that I need both here and there, I come up with a lot of things for myself and I don’t have to get bored.
I would advise all people with the same diagnosis to read less about him on the Internet, but this is not entirely correct – there is some benefit from this. It is good when a person has information from which he can choose, to understand which treatment is best. On the other hand, it starts to depress. There are many people on the Internet who complain, whine and talk about how terrible everything is.
I advise you to listen to yourself and look for strength, if not in yourself, then in your family and friends. Talk about your experiences, do not keep them to yourself. Explain to others how you feel and why you feel bad. The most important thing is not to be silent or close. Otherwise, you can drive yourself into a corner by reading horror on the Internet.
Things may not be so bad in a person with mild MS, for example, but he has worked himself up so hard that his favorable prognosis may come to naught from these experiences. You need to communicate with loved ones. I can tell my husband that I am worried about this, and he will answer me: “Nonsense, never mind,” and it becomes much easier for me, I stop thinking about the problem that I myself have come up with.
