Have you asked yourself in regards to MG, “Why me?”
Have you asked yourself in regards to MG, “Why me?” Mark Harrington has. I love this new piece of his, https://myastheniagravisnews.com/columns/reframing-question-why-me-life-rare-disease/.
Unlike what you would expect, Mark explains how we can flip this question from pondering and grieving why our bodies developed a disease and what we did to be destined for MG to thinking about “why me” in a gratitude sense.
Asking the why question repeatedly opens the door to frustration and grief, which is okay in moderation, but not a feeling that we want to fall victim to day after day. But MG is an opportunity to see how those who say they love and care for us really do—quite a blessing when you think about it.
Next time you ask why you had to get MG, ask yourself what you did to deserve all the wonderful people who stand by your side and continue giving you a helping hand. Think about how you can show that deep love back to them.
