Study linking MG with increased depression and anxiety
In a recent MG News posting, German researchers linked MG sufferers with increased neuroticisms. This should come as no surprise to all of us that have MG. Since my gMG flare and diagnosis in 2021, my life has changed dramatically. Many physical endeavors that were routine are now difficult or even impossible. The treatment quest we all go on takes it toll also. Both self-doubt and overwhelming nostalgic thoughts of the life we had steadily creep in.
Their recommendation of psychological counseling in addition to neurological treatment is spot on. There is still a great life available after diagnosis; it’s coming to terms with the many changes that allow us to move forward.
