Once friends, enjoying activities and the well-being of the relationship. Gradually it changes, impacting the day to day. Limitations imposed, pain exposed and at times it is intolerable. Frustration, grief, and betrayal; seeking to move forward, wanting to salvage what is left. Hopeful that such treason can be managed gracefully, if not overcome.

After 3 years it appears that a diagnosis is in sight. For those of you who are battling physical illness you understand how it can feel like the ultimate betrayal – your body challenging you every step of the way, every single day. Doctors and tests can feel overwhelming and tiresome, side effects of medication can be challenging at best. A body that once enjoyed activities now screams in resistance to movement and the price one will pay. But by the Grace of God I still have life and when my mind catches up with that heartfelt gratitude I will know – All is Well….with my soul.
Myasthenia Gravis …… I will keep on keepin’ on.
