Join the Conversation with Bette & Christine on Thursday, January 19th @ 1pm, on Zoom.
Let’s start the New Year with “How do I?” We’ll consider some of the challenging situations someone with MS or PD might encounter. And then we will, as a peer group, offer suggestions from our own experience.
Consider these questions.
HOW DO I
• Let others know that I need help?
• Confide in a friend that I am struggling with loneliness?
• Deal with the financial insecurity brought on by MS of PD?
• Explain to others what I am going through? Or should I not even try?
• Let go of the past? And is that important?
• React when someone hurts my feelings through an insensitive comment?
• Protect my emotions when around children who ask difficult questions about my appearance or mobility issues?
We welcome you to come with your own “How do I?” questions. Or with your seasoned answers. And if you just want to listen in, that’s okay too!
MS Monterey is all about improving quality of life for all those affected by MS and PD. Join the Conversation with Bette and Christine and it might just take you a long stride forward in having more positive experiences with your daily life!

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There’s no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
