MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS AND SELF-ESTEEM: A COMPLEX BILATERAL CORRELATION

Chronic medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis (MS) prove quite impactful, including self-esteem, which allows them to ensure their own tenacity. There are some contrasts in the correlation between MS and self-esteem that may involve extra variables or mediators, such as medications and depression, that enable specific correlation trajectories. While MS affects self-esteem directly, except when medications are involved and trigger depression influencing self-esteem, the reversal impact of self-esteem on MS is indirect, being assisted by depression, a transitional factor and condition, and it is only contributory in the sense that it does not cause MS to be available prior to the onset of depression. perpetuating the medical condition. Overall, the study shows different trajectories of the correlation between multiple sclerosis and self-esteem and MS persistence determinants like therapies, which allows tracing the impact of the medical condition and its possible extent. To do so, the cognitive model of Beck is applied, which centers on symptoms, including low self-esteem, which underpins depression. The model serves as an inspiration for the consideration of different causativeconsecutive connections between multiple sclerosis and self-esteem
