Chronic Sorrow in Multiple Sclerosis: A Case Study

Multiple Sclerosis, one of the most common chronic disabilities among young adults, may potentiate the occurrence of chronic sorrow.

Chronic sorrow differs from acute grief because it is permanent, periodic, and progressive in nature; it may be a normal component of chronic illness and disability.

This study describes one woman's experience with Multiple Sclerosis, her chronic sorrow, about the trajectory of her disability, her progressive loss of bodily function, and the stigma of chronic illness. It also reports some of the feelings experienced by her husband, the primary caregiver.
