It wasn’t so long ago when I joined this exclusive Facebook group of women with myasthenia gravis. Though most of the ladies I met there are located at the other side of the globe (I was lucky enough to meet one who’s also from the Philippines) all of them prove to be so accomodating, and I felt that genuine care they have for all of us who also in the group. It’s most probably because we know what’s going on with each other, owing it to the fact that we all have the same condition.
Apart from this blog, that’s the only space I have where I don’t have to be afraid to voice out my fears and disappointments about my condition. Most of my friends really mean well, I know that for sure, but most of the time, I feel like they would give me those encouraging words just to make me feel good about things. Don’t get me wrong. I love my friends. It’s just that there are times when I no longer feel the empathy in their words and all that’s left is pity and annoyance. And so I am just so thankful to be a part of this group who totally understands.
