The BEST Thing About MG

So today is the last day of National Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month. And I want to tell you the BEST thing about having Myasthenia Gravis.

I have met some of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life. The people I am connected with in my MG groups are phenomenal people. I know, with them, I am immediately accepted. I am automatically understood.

In a world where I have been judged my whole life, you really can't imagine what that feels like. My MG friends, most of whom I consider sisters, get me. These women are so precious to me. (I'm sure some of the guys are precious too, but I'm closest with mostly some of the women.)

I have my cheerleader, my confidante, my prayer warrior, my always-makes-me-laugh-er, my FRIENDS. I am broken-hearted that they suffer with the same hideous disease as I do, but I don't know what I would do without these women in my life.

They are beautiful people. They encourage me. They inspire me. They lift me up, and never let me down. There is an amazing bond when you have something like MG in common...it's immediate, and it's life-long.

I started blogging because of MG, and I have met some life-long friends that way as well. MG has brought so many people into my life that have enriched it in a way I had never imagined.
So I guess I'm glad I have this wretched disease.

I hope those of you of whom I am speaking know who you are. There are too many to name, and I certainly don't want to leave anyone out. My brain (especially today with this migraine) is not working as well as it used to, and I wouldn't want to forget anyone. But there are some of you, you BETTER know who you are....I adore you. I appreciate you. I love you like my sisters. And I thank God for you all in my life.

Love you Kerri, I always try to remember that God knows what I need much more than I do. I don't always know why, but I do know that it is true. You are amazing.
