Hope you are all keeping cool and well.
I am hoping I can get some advice from you all with regards to the emotional side of MS.
I was diagnosed a few years ago, started Rebif and have been stable since. However lately I have been having issues with many things (bladder, bowel, liver function, balance) but my doc is really good and making sure I am looked after. All this started about 6 months ago and ever since I have been very depressed and suffer from anxiety (as I keep worrying that tomorrow will be worse) so my doc referred me to a CBT therapist to see if he can help me with my anxiety. The CBT therapist says I have an intolerance to uncertainty meaning I don’t do well with the ‘what if’ situations (what if I get worse, what if I have a relapse, what if my relapse is bad, ect). His advice is to learn to let go.
Here is my problem, I don’t know how. How can I stop worrying about it? I don’t know how to not think about it. I am wondering those of you who are able to cope with the uncertainty how do you do it? What’s the secret to being able to stop worrying and to keep going? I try to distract my self by doing other things (cleaning, work, seeing friends) but when I do find my self alone (almost every night) I cry my self to sleep as I am afraid what might happen tomorrow. It’s driving me insane. If you guys have any advice I would very much appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
