Episode 25 — The Sum of Our Parts: Continuous Trauma, Anxiety and MS — feat. Dr. Virginia Seewaldt

Listen to Episode 25 of Myelin & Melanin! It’s our one year anniversary!

Being diagnosed with MS is a terrifying event. Being diagnosed with a chronic, potentially disabling and incurable disease is a traumatic event. It doesn’t end there, though. MS is a series of traumas — its unpredictability, and progressive nature create a lifelong litany of traumatic events that people with MS live with. Bring on the anxiety. Bring on the stress. Bring on a potential exacerbation due to the stress. It’s a cycle.

Dr. Virginia Seewaldt, PhD

Join us as we welcome psychologist Dr. Virginia (Ginny) Seewaldt, who talks us through some of these concepts as well as some fantastic techniques for managing anxiety in light of the continuous stress that MS brings.
