Chelsea, a single woman in her late 20’s, was diagnosed with MS two years ago. Because her symptoms are mostly invisible - including fatigue, numbness and tingling in her legs, occasional bladder issues, and some anxiety and sadness - Chelsea does not feel that her disease is “bad enough” to start a disease-modifying therapy. In spite of her parents’ concerns, she moved away from her hometown to take a new job as a teacher. Chelsea has not disclosed her MS to the school system. Her long work hours interfere with her socializing, being physically active, and planning healthy meals. She worries that her MS and her work schedule will make it hard for her to meet a significant other and have a family.
