      Partners, family, and friends of those living with MG: I’m curious how you communicate.

      What forms of validation and support does the one you care about respond to best when you tell or show them through action?

      I appreciate it when others acknowledge they understand and are willing to accommodate or help if I need it, rather than receive questions about the disease too much.

      My family and friends treat me like there is nothing wrong. They expect me to do all the house work, yard work, etc. I am the only one here working for a living of the rest. I am 74, my wife is 76, two daughters, 57 and 58. Same at work. I tell them about my myasthenia but they have no interest even in what that is.

        I have great understanding from the family and they let me do the house chores that I can do.  When I was first diagnosed the family, with help of some articles i collected for the interned on systems of the @#%[email protected]$%#^  mg told me to let them know if I felt that I couldn’t do a task and they would take care of it anytime.

        However my church family either forgets or ignores my Mg the treat me the same as if I were normal.  with two exceptions the pastor and one of the deacons.  I think they took the time to educate themselves, so how do you educate them if their not “interested” I don’t know.

        My conclusion in my personal case is: I they care enough for me, they will search the available data and educate themselves.

        Sorry for the down side of my situation but that is how I feel with my experiences since I have had Mg
