How to Stay Positive

How to Stay Positive
It may not seem like something to be on the list, but it is very important and very difficult to implement when you are in a relapse and when you diagnose it, be positive. This is a very important measure against the development of depression, and you need to know how this diagnosis brings depression as a gratis gift with a diagnosis. And I did not want to take that gratis, and neither do you! My advice (how I do it) is:
Surround yourself with positive people This is very important. Kada kazem ovo mislim na sledece: There are people who are very well cared for with their illness, but they need to console an environment that can not accept their diagnosis. Do not do this. If someone close to you is ill from multiple, please do not let the sick person still comfort you and take care of how you will accept it. Avoid time You can collect positive energy through things that have no sense of time. Sense of time was a problem for healthy people, let alone with us! My experie…

It is also important to mention the axis concerning the wider social environment, made up of his relatives and friends as well as the surrounding environment in general. It makes an informal social support network where a person with MS is located.
The spiritual axis is also very important for creating the quality of life of people living with MS, as well as the way to deal with the disease, problems and specificities of the psychological reactions of the diseased.

What does it mean to live with multiple sclerosis? (Part 1)
The story of this subject is never easy, nor is it potent; It is mostly multifaceted and very complex. Almost always, we have to start from the wide introduction and guidance of many factors that affect our lives, life with MS. The specificity and complexity of life with MS arises from the peculiarities of the disease itself, i.e. its nature. Thereafter, other determinants, such as disease stages, duration, lifetime, ie. the age in which we were ill, as well as the adaptation of the family, professional and social support in general. In fact, these factors distinguish us, but at the same time they make great differences among us.All these factors are referred to as a common denominator, but on the other hand, the degree of presence of symptoms, their number, severity, length, and the like are elements that, however, give a different picture to each of the diseased and color his life in a unique way. When to metaphorically repres…

Psychosocial counseling is mandatory

Psychosocial counseling is mandatory
People with MS are more prone to stress than other people. With everyday stresses of modern life, MS patients are still threatened by the diagnosis, which only falls into acute stress. As MS is an unpredictable disease, the uncertainty and anticipation of the next aggravation is a particular source of stress. Multiple sclerosis brings with it a change of image about oneself, relationships with family, friends, colleagues. In addressing these problems, the role of psychosocial support and assistance is invaluable. In people living with MS, the problems of psychological nature are more often related to the personality of the diseased, the reaction to illness, and the way of adjusting and reorganizing oneself according to the change that has occurred and which the disease inevitably carries with it, rather than being associated with the illness itself cause of the problem. MS sufferers face loss of health and this loss causes a very strong emotional reac…

The study of nutrition is associated with certain methodological problems, and the results of different types of studies are often in mutual contradiction. But despite these constraints, nutrition is today in the focus of interest of a large number of researchers, because a good knowledge of its effects on health and disease provides great opportunities for disease prevention and deterioration.
The importance of nutrition for the emergence of multiple sclerosis Epidemiological studies have shown that the risk of multiple sclerosis is associated with increased intake of animal fats and foods rich in saturated fatty acids and the poor unsaturated. Uns…

Deform in behavior and misbehavior
Very few MS patients have behavioral disorders due to the inability to control sexual impulses. This type of behavior is due to damage to the inhibitory functions of the brain. Unsuitable behavior is caused by the loss of cognitive ability due to the demyelination of significant cognitive areas in the brain. Family members should know that this is beyond the conscious control of the patient and that it is not a sign of moral weakness or sociopathic tendencies, but of illness. The treatment of the patient and the response to his behavior is very complex, and includes medication, psychiatric and neurological assistance with parallel psychotherapy. Family members need support in the form of advisory work, as this behavior can lead to unpleasant situations. Sometimes it is necessary to control these people in order to prevent possible outbursts.
