A Community for the Season

We’re in the heart of the holiday season and while some individuals find themselves joyously celebrating, we also hear from clients who experience feelings of distress during this time of year. The holidays can elicit some very strong emotions and concerns for some, which makes it difficult because there’s an expectancy to be cheery and elated throughout the entire season even though it can be a time of challenge and pressure, too.

For those performing holiday tasks, making preparations, and attending gatherings, this can be a stressful and exhausting time and others may not always understand why. For those not celebrating, the holidays may represent a period to have to cope with and just push through. Perspectives and experiences can be very different during the holidays, and for those who may be having a difficult time, it’s important to know that you are not alone. You can find support, comfort, and understanding from others through My MSAA Community.

“This is a great place to touch base when you need a question answered, want to vent, or just need the company of somebody who understands.”

My MSAA Community – One Year Later

It has officially been one year since MSAA launched its online peer-to-peer forum, My MSAA Community!  This virtual community (powered by HealthUnlocked) has allowed individuals living with MS and their care partners and families the opportunity to share their experiences, discuss a variety of topics, and support others in a friendly and safe environment.  Community members are able to connect with other people affected by MS, contribute to ongoing conversations, or start their own conversation asking for advice or sharing their journey.

Here are just a few of the ongoing conversations being discussed on My MSAA Community:
