REGINA — How do people with multiple sclerosis emotionally adjust to living with the debilitating disease?That's the focus of a study by Melissa Kehler, a University of Regina doctoral psychology student, who is looking for 400 adult Canadians with MS to complete a one-time questionnaire that is available either online or in paper format.The anonymous and confidential questionnaire takes about an hour to complete and includes questions about anxiety and depression as well as quality of life, coping and MS-related disability.Research has found that up to 50 per cent of people with MS experience depression at some point in their lives."Because MS is so variable, you've got people who might have much more limited physical effects of MS, and you've got people on the other end of the spectrum who are very strongly affected physically by MS," Kehler said. "And so we might think, 'You have this condition and you don't know what's going to happen to you in the future, why wouldn't you be depressed?' "
