Allowing herself to be more open has helped tremendously
Not only has she let people into the physical changes she is undergoing, but she has discussed how she copes emotionally. Unfortunately, she states that it has been a bit of an uphill battle, and still struggles to accept her life with multiple sclerosis. But to fight against this negative mindset, she has begun undergoing hypnotherapy.
She realizes that a large part of the emotional hardship was all the effort she put into hiding her MS from the public eye, which led to a disconnect, and she felt as if she was not being entirely herself when she was concealing such a huge aspect of her life.
However, she says that liberating herself of the former constraints she built for herself in terms of openness has helped her mental state tremendously.
