I propose each of you shares here the top 3 things that help you manage your disease. The things or people or actions without which you feel you couldn't cope.
Is it your treatment? Your physical activity? Your doctor? Your patient association's leader?
Any idea/experience is welcome!

@BShields Sleep is always a fantastic way to rejuvenate yourself. I love drinking a cup of chamomile tea before going to bed to help me relax.

Talking about how am feeling to an expert is often helpful. And being open to new ideas.

Yes, talking to others really helps. That's what Carenity is for too ;)
Do any other members have anything to add that helps them?

I find it difficult to know when it’s time for me to stop and rest. Learning how to listen to your body is essential whether it is lower mood, slower thinking and movements, higher levels of anxiety and impatience. These signs are often ignored by myself and end up becoming worse.
However top 3 things for me;
good pain killers the day after beta interferon injection

@stutaylor Hello, thanks for sharing this, I hope it helps someone else :)
A bit of moderate exercise is always good for the body and mind.

Having S.P. I have had to learn acceptance as to what I can or can't do. So listening to my body,not overdoing things and having support are the main things that help apart from pain killers that is lol.
