Jack Osbourne on living with multiple sclerosis and overcoming depression

Living with multiple sclerosis can bring up feelings of depression.

Jack Osbourne has been living with multiple sclerosis for four years but admits there are still days he has those “why me” moments.

“Depression is the most common side effect of sufferers with multiple sclerosis,” Osbourne told CNN. “I don’t take medication for it but I do have bouts of it.”
Osbourne was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) in 2012, after he noticed numbness in his legs and went blind in his right eye.
“I get frustrated at the notion when I start going down that hole at like, ‘Oh I can do all this stuff’ but if I woke up tomorrow I’d be really f**king annoyed if something is not working right. Like, I can’t grip well or I lose vision in my eye again,” he said.
Osbourne credits his wife, Lisa Stelly, with helping him get through the dark days.
