Are you getting tired of your fatigue?
FatigueArticle from October 2019 edition of Intouch eNewsletter

Many people who live with multiple sclerosis will experience some degree of fatigue, and it’s unsurprisingly something that tends to interfere with day to day activities including work and other commitments. So, learning effective ways to manage fatigue can be really helpful if you’re finding that usual tasks are becoming more taxing than they used to be.  

Some readers will be familiar with the FACETS program, which we have previously offered. But for those who haven’t heard of it, FACETS stands for - Fatigue: Applying Cognitive behavioural and Energy Effectiveness Techniques to LifeStyle, and it is an evidence-based group program for people living with multiple sclerosis who want to find ways to manage symptoms of fatigue. 

The FACETS program incorporates ‘energy effectiveness’ techniques and ways to maximise your energy, as well as cognitive behavioural strategies, and helpful ways of thinking about fatigue.

We will be offering the program at Blackburn and Lidcombe as well as via webinar, so you can still take part online if you can’t get to either location. The program consists of six face to face sessions in groups of 8–12 people held weekly and commences on 24 October for face to face, and 1 November for the webinar version.

Learn more about the program, or go ahead and sign up.
