“I have myasthenia gravis. My white cells eat the proteins. It affects my muscles. Some days I have trouble getting in and out of my vehicle. My doctor thinks it’s progressed as far as it’s going to go. But there are no guarantees. It’s called a ‘snowflake’ disease because you never know where it’s going to go. Some days I have slurred speech. People think I’m drinking on the job. Cognition gets rough. Sometimes I have trouble understanding what people are saying. I just fight through it. But there are some Saturdays I just go home and start crying because I’m that exhausted.” 18p9.jpg
