Myasthenia gravis is an invisible illness
This rare neuromuscular disease causing profound weakness is often misunderstood because weakness is invisible.
Weakness is invisible
You never know what will happen when you spend the night in a hotel room with a stranger. I needed a room for the first night of the conference and Jamie had an extra bed at the hotel. Turns out we were well-suited to be roomies. We both got a laugh over the fact that I didn’t realize she is in a wheelchair. She is highlighting various disabilities on her blog, Jamie’s Thots, and allowed me to contribute an article about what I wish people knew about myasthenia gravis (MG).
I could have written a book; I probably will.What I wish people knew about myasthenia gravis #IHaveHeardofMG Click To Tweet
Invisible illnesses are hard for people to understand
I consulted my MG brothers and sisters around the world and posed the question, “What is one thing you wish people knew about myasthenia gravis?” I tried to include every issue raised, hence enough material for a book.
2 Corinthians 1:6, “If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.” NIV
I hope you will read my post (which has already been shared about 500 times!) on Jamie’s blog.
