Did you know that there are several local support groups for people living with MS and their carepartners? We encourage everyone to participate in a group. You are not alone. Making a connection with someone else who is affected by this disease can be so helpful in coping and in negotiating health-related decisions. Remember, all groups are to remain focused on providing a positive environment to exchange information and ideas. Mutual support is an important aspect of grouping so individuals are asked to maintain confidentiality and a positive attitude in this group setting. Be sure to thank your volunteer group facilitator for overseeing the meeting!
