MyCounterpane has partnered with Erika Lyons Richardson to bring you a question that is vital aspect when you live with multiple sclerosis: the empathy you receive from others.

While many MSers report that those around them don’t understand their MS, empathy from others does exist.

And we’d love to hear about the real examples of empathy in your life.

Whether it’s a neighbor who brings dinner over once a week because you’re too tired to cook or a family member who volunteers to babysit your children when you have fatigue, empathy helps those who can’t always help themselves.

Use the form below to share examples of empathy in your life, and give those special people the shout out they deserve!

We appreciate all the real-life empathy responses we received! This kind of emotional support can not only help those that are experiencing it but for those who would like to learn more as well.
