There are some sicknesses that you can avoid. There are some you can get rid of. And then there are also those that you have no choice but to live with, but that doesn’t mean that your life is already over. Despite having multiple sclerosis, you can still have a happy and productive life. How can that be possible?
1. Find activities that you can enjoy but won’t make you feel weak. Don’t spend every day feeling bored. Spend your time doing productive things such as knitting or making personalized frames. You can even take on a DIY project, which you can enlist some help from your relatives or friends as a form of bonding session.
2. Meet other people with MS and share fun stories and experiences. You should not isolate yourself because that will only make you feel sad. Instead, find ways to talk to new people. Get strength from others, and when others need your support, lend it to them. Help each other out and make yourself as well as others feel that they are needed. They will be thankful for your presence in their life.
3. Surround yourself with people you love. It would help if you met a lot of people, stranger or not. Family support can alleviate some of the pain you are feeling. More importantly, seeing how your family has become will make you smile. Grandchildren could give you some comfort, too. Why don’t you and the entire family schedule a backyard picnic with barbecues and lemonade? Take lots of pictures and gather them in a scrapbook which you can work on during your free time.
4. Begin doing things you’ve always wanted to do. Now is not the time for regret. Now is the time to start doing the things that you have always postponed in the past.
You will have a fulfilling life if you know that you’ve done everything you can to give yourself happiness. These activities don’t have to be tedious or complicated. Even simply eating a dish you’ve never wanted to eat can count. Feed your curiosity and make yourself happy.
