Can facing your fears help you come to terms with them?
That’s the idea behind a recent discussion in our multiple sclerosis (MS) forum, in which one member asked, “What part of MS are you most afraid of?” The answers poured in from dozens of MS members who found it cathartic to reveal their true fears. In some cases, these heavy concerns are things that members have not felt comfortable sharing with family or friends. For example, some stated that they are most scared of “relying on others” or “becoming a burden.” For others, it’s “not recognizing myself” or “having no quality of life.”
