Maintaining a Positive Attitude

Check out Mary’s question to Aaron Baker, our Spinal Cord Injury Lifestyle Specialist, about maintaining a positive attitude:

Hi Aaron,

I was very encouraged by your sharing. I have progressive MS and I find it hard sometimes to have a positive attitude. Humor helps, but sometimes isolation is hard to overcome. How do you reach out to others? Does it help?



Hello Mary,

I appreciate you reaching out to me. The psychological roller coaster of life can be dramatically amplified by a physical condition like MS or spinal cord injury – no doubt!

I have found that by participating in a charitable event, either as a volunteer of service or as a participant for personal challenge, I can create an opportunity to share and enjoy my time with like-minded, like-hearted people in a safe and positive space … yes it has helped me. Tremendously!

Be well,
