For those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), daily activities can become a challenge, and the need for support may rapidly increase. These sudden changes can come as a shock. Anxiety, uncertainty and stress are identified as common emotional responses from the early stages of diagnoses (Multiple Sclerosis International Federation, 2021).

A client with relapsing-remitting MS recently shared her MS journey and acknowledged that some days she copes better than others. She struggles with the guilt of seeing her husband sacrificing his career in order to meet her increasing needs. She finds therapy supports from the physiotherapist, therapy assistant and occupational therapist to be vital to teach her and husband how to manage the condition. Her husband finds it most helpful to be advised on what can be done for his wife when the therapists are not around.
