 *Anxiety is a common problem for people living with chronic, progressive diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, as well as, helping people with Cancer.  Negative emotions like anxiety and resentment use up valuable energy that can better be directed to completing your daily chores and practising your vocation or hobbies you care about.  

Managing your mind and emotions is a very important defensive strategy in dealing with depression, frustration and discouragement that can be part of living with a chronic illness.
