Available for free, Healthline’s MS Buddy allows you to connect with others who have multiple sclerosis. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been living with MS for years, MS Buddy is your tool for discovering support and getting advice from MS peers.
HOW IT WORKS
MS Buddy is free to download, and connecting with others through the app is simple.
* We’ll ask you a few questions about yourself: your age, gender, location, type of MS, treatment, medication, and how long you’ve had the condition.
* Each day, MS Buddy will match you with another user who has a similar profile to your own.
* You’ll have the option of reaching out to anyone on your match list, or responding to anyone who messages you.
* Anyone with whom you choose to not interact will disappear from your match list after ten days.
It’s that easy.
If you’ve recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, you may be experiencing isolation and loneliness. But you’re not alone: An estimated 2.3 million people have MS.
