A lot of people with chronic illnesses don’t have the support system they need. How does one get support when they have none?
The internet is a fantastic tool. I have a good support system at home but joining MS groups online has helped me wonders when I feel alone.
Friends are also a good support. If you don’t have family talk to, talk to your friends about having a rough time. If they are true friends they will hold your hand without judgment. These type of friends are wonderful to have.
I’m going to add a list of Facebook groups that have helped me that will hopefully help you if you are in need:
These groups are filled with wonderful people who will give you the support that you need. They may even make you smile! I hope this article serves you well and I wish you the best on your MS journey. My inbox is also always open to anyone who needs it!
