ALL ABOUT MS The role of the family (Part 16)

Behavior towards a person with MS

The question arises about what attitude is taken toward the patient. Should it be lenient, compassionate, or not? There is no accurate and precise answer to such questions, but only general recommendations can be given which in different situations acquire meaning and practical meaning. It should not be forgotten that the quality of relationships that existed in the family before the arrival of MS directly influences her in the new situation, and that the disease itself may be another test and test of the strength and quality of the family.

A family member who has a MS, in the first place, is expecting support from his family, i.e. understanding, respect, warmth, love, consolation, psychological but also concrete help. In this direction it is important to create an atmosphere that will enable all of this. It is especially important to know that MS is a very unpredictable disease and that it changes the personality of the diseased person, which all requires the family to be addressed in very diverse and unstable emotional states and always respond to them in the right way. It is also important to talk about everything that some of the members are touching. In a situation where there is a dilemma about how to set up and react, it is best to be open and share your dilemmas and dilemmas with sick people and others in the family. This shows the interest and good will to help. Wise advice and cleverness can very often have the opposite effect and lead to a deadlock in communication, which only delays the resolution of the problem. Conversation, exchange of thoughts, questions without feeling guilty or excessive compassion of attacking mercy are a way of fighting against MS.

How to help yourself?

A significant segment of the life in this family, in addition to caring for an ill member, should be self-care. Many who live with the sick focus on his needs, so they often neglect their own health. To take care of your health is to take care of both the physical and the emotional state. It further means respecting one's own need for privacy, providing space for oneself, as well as time for work and socializing. Prevention is more effective than healing, so a person is feeling better about himself, which allows her to deal with the obligations and the role of someone who is concerned about someone else. By taking care of one's own physical and mental health, the family will continue to be a good source of support for the patient for a long time. In the world, the current idea is to help helpers in everyday life. The prevailing opinion is that energy spent in the process of nursing, care and care must be collected and reimbursed in some way. Emotional support that is priceless for a person with MS is often exhausting for the family, so it has to be constantly nurtured, refreshed and re-created. This is most productive in family support groups that have members with MS.

ALL ABOUT MS Treatment (Part 11)

Treatment of relapse and some symptoms
Routine therapy for acute relapses is an intravenous high dose of corticosteroids, usually methylprednisolone at a dose of 500 to 1000 mg daily for three to five days. The aim of this therapy is to stop the attack as soon as possible in order to keep as little a consequence of this attack. Although generally effective in short-term symptom relief, corticosteroids do not have a significant impact on long-term recovery. In addition, longer therapy with corticosteroids can lead to osteoporosis, high blood pressure, psychotic reactions, convulsions, and cataracts.

Color of MS! Everyday!

Color of MS! Everyday!
Multiple sclerosis or MS, as we call it short, means a lot. But first of all, you must be strong and have to invest a lot of energy to make your life look the same as before the illness. How many of the bizarre things I will emphasize today are actually very important in everyday life and really help how crazy it sounds. A few tips for a safer everyday life with multiple sclerosis:
1. Always leave important things like keys, phone, purses, glasses in the same place. If you have not had a place for these things, now find it. Always return the things to where they stand because you know how to hurry somewhere. You can never find keys, cell phone or glasses. If they are always in the same place this will never be a problem. A lot of stressful situations will be avoided if you adopt this new routine. 2. Close the kitchen cabinets - yes, always close them. You know how awkward we can be and you know that you will quickly forget that you have opened them. I learned this a…
