Living with a new diagnosis doesn't have to be scary

Live a Beautiful and Full Life

47% of Australians had one or more chronic conditions.

Over the last decade the prevalence of chronic conditions increased (from 42%).

Females aged 15 years and over were more likely than males to have a chronic condition (57% compared to 51%).

The prevalence of chronic conditions increased with age.

Hearing the diagnosis is shocking… then you need to live with it.

Chronic conditions can tear shreds off your relationships, your motivation, your life.

You don’t need to tough it out, to go it alone.

  • Become part of a community that builds resilience, adds knowledge and values a sustainable existence
  • Access the MS Understood podcasts with chronic disease experts from around the globe

You don’t have to live with pain, anger and uncertainty.

A chronic condition is not your fault.

Sometimes, we women seek to blame our conditions on something we did as kids, our lifestyle, ourselves.

We seek reason where none exists.

These fruitless brain drains can quickly spiral out of control and devastate ourselves and the people around us.

Stop. Maintain composure and let us help you deal with your emotional responses to –

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Chronic Back Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • And more…

Ladies, don’t wait for anxiety and depression. 

Tune into the MSUnderstood podcast and become you.


I got diagnosed last Monday. It had been months of testing and MS was a possibility but I was in denial until I heard those three words: ‘it’s definitely MS’.
….It’s hearing from real people who actually have MS that there is hope and that you can have a relatively normal life, and not to feel as though you have to take on everything at once or alone.
….thank you….. it  takes away some of the overwhelm.

It’s really great what are you are doing. Spreading positivity around the MS community.

My favourite aspect is when you ask everyone ….what’s the best thing to come out of their diagnosis.  For me it’s prioritising what’s important, not to put off anything important, my amazing support system, and how much closer it’s brought me and my mum. Thank you from Vancouver Canada
