What Does Living Mean to You?
In my column a few weeks back, I mention draining interactions. After patience and effort explaining our illness to others, some people might continuously conclude that we are letting MG prevent us from living our lives.
I agree that we mustn’t let MG have complete control of our lives. But what it means to live varies dramatically for someone with MG compared with a healthy person.
We shouldn’t mold our lives to gratify others. Instead, we should experience life and focus on whatever sparks a fire in our inner being.
We are the book authors of our lives, but MG is our co-writer who likes to throw in plot twists. How we respond is up to us — and only us.
How has your meaning of living changed since your MG diagnosis?
