      Thank you for your comment. I am sorry to hear of your recent challenges and appreciate your efforts in trying to find motivation. Unfortunately, depression can be a commonly seen symptom in the condition of MS, either as a result of the disease process’ effects on the nerves or as a common response to life stressors and changes. It is important to note that depression is a treatable condition, oftentimes treated using a combination of medication and talk therapies. I would encourage you to consult with a specialist within the field for the depression issues. Seeking consultation from a neuropsychiatrist or other licensed professional may be helpful in obtaining further clarification into the condition. For more information on depression and MS, you can visit the MSAA website at http://mymsaa.org/publications/depression/, and http://mymsaa.org/publications/motivator/winter-spring09/cover-story/8/.

      You can also contact the MSAA Client Services team for additional information by emailing MSquestions@mymsaa.org, or call our Helpline at 1-800-532-7667 x 154.
