The Importance of Trusting Yourself

Posted on August 16, 2018

Studies have shown that the more we take ownership of our condition, the more engaged we are in maintaining behaviors that help us live better. An important factor in having the confidence to take this ownership is self-trust.

"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers." - Member of MyMSTeam

"When I was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if my doctor said something incorrect or wrong for my body. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up."- Member of MyMSTeam

Here are some conversations on trust on MyMSTeam:

"My doctor recommended a few medications and I highly trust him, but I do not want to blindly start a new medication that can bring me worse side effects than MS symptoms. Perhaps that is the way to go, but I first want to do my personal research and hear from others that share my same condition."

"Do as much as you can while you can and give yourself permission to trust that other people will step up to help you out. My experience is that help comes when you need it the most and generally from people that you least expected to step up and help."

"I have learned to 'trust but verify.' Just like other MS treatments, I know that nothing is for everyone."

Was there a moment when you doubted yourself and later realized that your instinct was right? Or an instance when you were glad you trusted yourself? Share that moment in the comments below or directly on MyMSTeam.com.
