Having MS is difficult in and of itself, let alone while we all navigate the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19. The ever-changing news and information can be overwhelming and anxiety inducing. In this webinar, we will explore ways to manage the uncertainty and unknown, how stress can impact MS symptoms, ways to take care of yourself and your needs while you are staying home or are in quarantine, and provide some resources and ideas to support you in this difficult time. There will be time for Q&A at the end.
