Today’s Topic:  MG Awareness, June 25th, Wednesday, 5-8 pm ET 

Dealing with the transitions of MGOn today’s chat, join the Twitter Party in 2 dimensions.  Gary & Caryl will be on the conference line talking about Myasthenia Gravis.  We welcome anyone who would like to share their personal story, suggestions or comments. Listen in and add to the conversation, call 1-218-895-9810 code 5111#.


During the chat we will be posting questions to start engagement. The listing below is not the exact wording of the questions that will be asked in the #GLTP.  The intent is to help you prepare and gather your thoughts around the theme of our conversation.


What is Myasthenia Gravis (MG)? 

Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease characterized by varying degrees of weakness of the skeletal (voluntary) muscles of the body. The name myasthenia gravis, which is Latin and Greek in origin, literally means “grave muscle weakness.”  MG is caused by a defect in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. It occurs when normal communication between the nerve and muscle is interrupted at the neuromuscular junction.

What will we be discussing?

Today the focus will be on how it effects individuals on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.  Attention will be brought forward to educate, inform and share personal thoughts, feelings and stories.  Please share how it has affected you, or a love one.  Stay active by posting answers to the specific questions.  If you want to go deeper, and explore other possibilities, please feel free to call the conference line # listed above.

Some Questions to Help You Get You in the Flow *:

  • How do explain what MG is?
  • How can you succeed in coping with challenges?
  • How does emotional stress affect you?
  • What type of emotions do you deal with? e.g. anger, fear.

* Actual questions will be numbered and posted live during the Tweet Chat.


  • To help others out who may have just joined the party, please RT the question along the way.
